‘‘ ‘‘ Kristin has always been really mature for her age, but to see her grow into the confident and compassionate leader that she is becoming is exciting. – Jenae Jenkins Program Director and Recognized Coach First Tee of Metro Atlanta FINDING PASSION & PURPOSE Introduced to First Tee of Metro Atlanta by her mom in 2011, Kristin was shy, easily intimidated and reluctant to step outside of her comfort zone. First Tee became instrumental in helping her find her voice, appreciate the different perspectives of those around her and ultimately, develop the leadership skills that continue to serve her well today. Longtime coach and mentor from her chapter Timothy Moone, encouraged Kristin to find what she loved to do and pursue it. She graduated high school with honors, and is now actively-involved at University of Georgia. She is a member of several volunteer organizations, mentors a local high school student and is double majoring in Biology and Accounting. Leveraging what she learned through First Tee and inspired by health challenges faced by her family, including her mother’s breast cancer, father’s diabetes and brother’s autism, Kristin wants to use her knowledge and voice to help others by finding cures to complex diagnoses. The First Tee experience is a powerful tool – the curriculum and our trained coaches – to encourage, inspire and empower young people each day. We are proud of alumni, like Kristin, who are well on their way to making the world a better place.
