Learner Spotlight: Amy Chabroux

Amy

Amy is a sixth grader at iLEAD Exploration. She excels in academics, but her favorite subject is science, especially chemistry and geology. There is nothing more fun than science experiments where she gets to explore and explode things. Amy is an avid collector and, among her treasures, you will find great collections of coins, stamps, bookmarks, erasers, rocks and minerals, but her greatest collection is her dragon collection. Finding interest in these mysterious beasts has turned into a great passion for Amy, and her collection includes over 60 dragons from all over the world.

During her three years of homeschooling, Amy has been able to explore art, which she really enjoys. She draws, paints, takes pictures and creates jewelry. A couple years ago, she decided to enter her works into a competition and ended up getting a blue ribbon. After winning a blue ribbon, Amy has been entering contests such as Imaginology Youth Project Competition at the O.C. Fair, Excellence Through Classics, The Learning Tangent magazine and Science Cube, which has resulted in winning many prestigious awards.

Despite her many talents and achievements, Amy remains kind and thoughtful and wants to give back to the community. For her 10th birthday, instead of gifts, she asked her friends to give her stuffed animals and she donated 55 of them to U.C. Irvine Hospital’s pediatrics department. After that experience, her desire to give grew and she started creating a line of jewelry that quickly became an attraction. By selling her necklaces at various art fairs and school markets, she raised enough money to buy plenty of art supplies, and in October 2016 she donated 430 art kits to U.C. Irvine Hospital’s pediatrics department. Her next goal for U.C. Irvine Hospital’s pediatrics department is to purchase tablets for those children who are confined to bed. In order to help with her goal, she launched a new website where she hopes to reach more people.
