Cole Kunze wants to develop more confidence, while Natalie Guardado can't think of a better way to spend her time.
And Rosita Trevizo feels she can make a difference.
The three Galt students, along with Alexis Rivas, were chosen to serve on the City Council's Youth Committee by Mayor Barbara Payne. Their appointments were approved at Tuesday's regular council meeting.
Here is a closer look at each new student committee member:
Guardado, a sophomore at Liberty Ranch High School, candidly admitted in her application that she's not the best leader, but she loves community service. Additionally, she doesn't mind hard work.
Aside from homework and hanging out with her friends, the student said she has little else to do.
"So what better way to spend my time (than) helping out the community?" Guardado wrote.
She would like to see more activities available for students to do to keep them out of trouble.
Kunze is also a sophomore at Liberty Ranch.
In his application, he said he wanted to be on the committee to better his community. He has lived in Galt since age 4.
Kunze sees a number of issues facing his peers today, including youth obesity, possibly because of the lack of exercise and other activities offered. If Galt's youths had more to do, they would be less likely to participate in destructive activities, he said.
Rivas, a junior at Galt High School, also feels being a member of the committee will help her give back to the community. She would like to see more afterschool programs, not only to otherwise occupy students who might find gangs appealing, but to better their educational experience, she said.
"I would like to make changes to so we could help the next generation of kids to want to join in committees like this," Rivas added of serving on the committee.
Trevizo, a sophomore at Liberty Ranch, has lived in Galt since she was 9 or 10. Most recently, she has played soccer and was a Key Club member at school. This year she is on Liberty's leadership team and a member of the California Scholastic Federation and National Honor Society.
She said she wanted to be on the committee for a number of reasons, including her experience planning events and her desire to learn more about how the city is run, as she plans to enter the political science field.
"I always give 110 percent into anything and everything that I do," Trevizo wrote in her application.
