Cool Kid raises awareness for global matters

May 6, 2010 12:00:00 AM PDT
From environmental issues to health concerns, this Cool Kid has a very local take on global problems and she's trying to make a difference beyond her own community. Water shortages here and around the world have the attention of Cool Kid Sabrina Valles. She wants to do everything she can to help.

"You can educate more people about it. You could also just talk about it," said Sabrina. "Just knowing that there are people out there that don't even have water, it's not a great feeling," said Sabrina.

Sabrina deals with global problems in a very personal way.

"Inspiring two people can inspire two more people, maybe inspire even more people so everybody just comes together somehow and are inspired to work together to accomplish something," said Sabrina.

Whether it's an eco issue or a health issue, Sabrina wants to be of service. It is obvious to others at her school at Saint Joseph High School that Sabrina is a unique young lady.

"Someone that doesn't care who you are, what color you are, where you came from, if you need help, I'm here to help you and that's exactly what she has been doing forever," said Terri Mendoza, Principal.

Sabrina knows that working on certain issues, like clean water, benefits everyone including herself. But that's not the reason she does what she does.

"The feeling that you're helping someone is far greater. It's like Santa Clause. You get to give presents. Just the giving is great," said Sabrina.

This planet has many challenges. Cool Kid Sabrina Valles is doing so much to make the world a better place.
