When it comes to selfless teenagers, you won’t find any more so than Tokay High School senior Amelia Seefeldt. In her youth, she has already participated in four life-changing trips all over the world to help others. She has traveled to the poor native villages of Alaska, the projects of Dallas and New York, and most recently to Japan to assist with tsunami relief.

Helping others is woven into the fiber of her being. Amelia said that her experiences have been eye-opening in terms of being a part of other cultures. It warmed her heart to see the gratefulness they expressed for simple efforts she was a part of.

“Even when we gave the people a tarp for shelter, they were so incredibly grateful,” Amelia said.

When asked to provide three words to describe herself, she stated, “Christian, determined, selfless.” And clearly, she walks the walk.

This fall, she will be attending her college of choice, Biola University, majoring in intercultural studies. She plans to obtain a teaching credential and Teaching English in Secondary Language certification in order to teach locally and abroad.

Without a doubt, Amelia is changing the world one kind action at a time.
