My name is Iida Linkka and I am 17 years old. I am about to start my senior year in high school so the Common App is a tab always open on my laptop. I work at an Ice Cream shop and my favorite flavor is “Eyes Wide Open,” which is deliciously coffee flavored. My faith is something that is very important to me and I live each day by the Bible verse “Let all that you do be done in love.” With that being said, I love to serve and encourage others, which is why I joined the Dare to LEAD team. I am so proud and lucky to be a part of everything that it stands for. After going to college, I hope to attend medical school and eventually become a psychiatrist so that I can make a life out of my love for helping those in need.
