Shared with assistant Scout Master in 1-on-1 meeting:
I have a servant's heart, as I do in church, in scouts, and in life, I want to find ways to help people. I keep myself mentally awake by doing my best in school. I keep myself physically strong by participating in sports. I keep myself spiritually straight by actively participating in my church.
