Faith Campbell Aspires To Become An Orthodontist One DayFBy Sally Kalosaith Campbell, a freshman at Texas A & M San Antonio, recently transitioned from her high schoollife at Harmony Science Academy where she graduated this past May. Her high school journey was transformative, particularly due to the partnership Harmony had with SA Orthodontics.“The collaboration with SA Orthodontics really opened my eyes,” says Faith. “It gave me an invaluable hands-on experience in the dental field. The behind-the-scenes look I received solidified my decision to pursue a career in this area. The entire team, especially the women at SA Orthodontics, were always eager to answer questions and teach me various tasks in the clinic.”While she aspires to become anorthodontist, Faith’s interest in this field truly piqued during her junior year of high school and has been growing ever since. “I’m not yet certain which dental school I’d like to attend, but Chicago is certainly on my dream list,” she shares.But Faith’s experiences at Harmony Science Academy weren’t limited to the dental field. She also participated in the Service Leadership Society (SLS), often referred to as a mock government. This club is instrumental in shaping students into leaders by encouraging them to address real-world societal and political issues. The pinnacle of their efforts is to draft a bill and present it to other SLS groups in Austin.“Our group introduced a bill on qualified immunity,” Faith explains. “Its main aimwas to refine the definition of qualified immunity to close any loopholes that might permit unlawful behavior or injustices by police officers. Under our proposal, a panel comprising both police officers and citizens would evaluate if an officer’s actions were lawful before granting them qualified immunity.”While their bill gained traction within the Texas State Harmony Service Leadership Harmony organization and even reached the floor for consideration, it hasn’t advanced further. However, Faith considers it an enlightening experience on the workings of legislative processes.On a personal level, when asked aboutGet Ready For Fall Allergies Because They’re Headed Your WayA few simple tips will keep you sneeze and wheeze-free this falloff mold by cleaning gutters regularly and keeping home humidity below 60 percent. 3.

Fall? Warm temperatures make us think it’s still summer: Because fall allergies may start earlier and last longer, it’s important to begin taking your allergy medications at least two weeks before your symptoms normally start and continue until pollen counts have been down for about two weeks.2. Mold: Mold is an allergen that thrives in fall. In addition to growing on leaves after they have fallen, mold can be found anywhere there is water.
