Zoe Wilson: [00:00:10] Hi my name is Zoe Wilson. I go to the Florida School for the Deaf and the Blind. I'm in the 12th grade, and I'm 18 years old. I'm involved in five sports including goalball for the blind, soccer, swimming, cheerleading, and track and field. I am the class president and valedictorian. I help out in the athletic program and help along the side on football games for the sports medicine program. I also help with the Ponte Vedra Cheer team. I help as a Young Life leader. Post graduation I would like to attend college and major in health sciences or sports medicine. I would also like to minor in American Sign Language. My biggest accomplishment this year has been receiving the David Mathis Pursuing Victory with Honors Award. I would like to thank my coaches, teachers, and staff at FSDB!
