Stone Valley middle schooler seeks ambassadorship

Original post made on May 27, 2010

A 12-year-old from Stone Valley Middle School wants to be a European ambassador. Anna Nunes isn't jumping the gun. The seventh grader is raising money to become a student ambassador with the People to People program, and she's raising money for the trip on her own -- with a little help from her mother, Magret.

I know Anna and her family personally. She is a very mature middle school student with big ambitions. I hope that everyone in the community will get behind this young lady and help make this great experience happen.

I didn't see any contact information in the story. Perhaps the story can be updated to include a way for someone to contact the family. In the meantime, if you contact me at, I can put you in contact with the family.

Good job Anna!

Young people like Anna, who are trying to make a difference, deserve to be supported. And, as the story says, she is willing to work hard and to give back when she returns.

We also know Margret and her daughters and they are truly an amazing family! If you like desserts (who doesn't?!) please consider supporting this young lady by purchasing a homemade dessert. Her Mom makes the most FABULOUS Pecan Pies! We know firsthand because we have purchased several and will be purchasing more to celebrate upcoming birthday's and Father's Day. Yum! Yum! All the best to you Future Ambassador Anna! Good luck!

You sound like an amazing girl. First, please do your research on the People to People Student Ambasador program (start w/Google). Make sure they will deliver on all that they promise because that's a lot of money.

Hello Anna,

We are so proud of you! We'd love to order baked goods from your mother to support your cause. Can someone please post Magret's email or business contact info?
Thanks, The Javiers

I would try getting in touch with her through the school or perhaps through the email listed by commenter Alan above.

You are more than welcome to email me and I can put you in touch with them. I will also let them know about these comments in case they would like to put contact information here. With the end of the school year, this is a very busy time in their household.

Thank you to everyone for their positive comments. I know that Anna will represent our community well.
