This is my second year as a peer counselor. I joined the program because I wanted to spread positivity on campus and make sure that everyone has a great high school experience. I play lacrosse here at LCC and I am a major dog enthusiast. If you ever see me around don't be afraid to reach out if you ever need anything.

I became a peer counselor because I believe talking about personal struggles with someone close to your age, who understands more than an adult or parent would, is a great way to vent without being judged and you also gain a friend in the process!
I am involved in Theatre and ASB, I am Co-President of Community Day Club, and I work at Islands! I spend my free time watching Friends :) Fun Fact: I cry whenever I see a cute baby or animal. It can be a picture, video, or in person, my eyes just unwillingly fill with water, it’s the weirdest thing!

I joined PALS so that I can help create inclusivity and happiness on campus. I want students to have a familiar face that they feel safe around and I joined this program because of the amazing projects that they put on. I hope that I am able to spread this program.

This is my second year as a peer counselor. I find that this program is one that really helps those in need of a friend or just a little push. In my free time I mostly play video games or edit music. If you see me around campus, feel free to say hi!
Keelin Grubb (12)
I became a peer counselor because I have struggled with mental health issues of my own and know what it’s like to not feel like yourself. My hope is to be able to help others get through tough times they are having and make them feel better because I can relate to what they’re going through and know everything in their life will work out. I love to shop, bake, travel, and hangout with my golden retriever, Cali. I love the color yellow and my favorite song is "When I’ve been drinkin’".

Paige Hokunson (12)
My name is Paige and I became a peer counselor my junior year and have continued in the program because I believe no one deserves to feel alone throughout whatever they are going through. I am someone who loves going to church, going on adventures, and being outside. A couple of little facts about myself are my favorite animals are ducks and I am obsessed with Harry Potter.
Eden Markel (12)
I became a counselor because I am committed to helping my peers and truly want to make La Costa Canyon a safe and trusted environment. When I’m not in school or working at Crust, I love spending time with my friends or watching movies. A fun fact about me is that I am the co-president of a political activism club on campus. I feel that the personal experiences I’ve gone through in my life could relate to a lot of students and allow me to give positive input into helping them through hard times.
Skylar Belice (12)
I joined the peer counseling program my junior year because I saw it as a great way to connect with my peers and help anyone who needs someone to talk to when they need it most. I love to listen to people and be an extra shoulder to lean on :) I know we all deal with the stress and pressures of high school and i'm so glad our school finally has this program to hopefully help ease that for whoever needs it! Besides PALS, at school I am involved in theatre and I am the Co-President of the Community Day Club! Fun fact: I am obsessed with Acai and I am a Harry Potter and Star Wars nerd.

Camella Casinelli (12)
I joined PALS because I know what it is like to need someone to be there for you. I strive to help anyone that is struggling no matter what the situation may be. Fun fact: I LOVE Keanu Reeves <3
