My name is Allison Poland, and I'm a Freshman at Central York High School. I like to play video games, write, and draw. I joined Apollo because I went to the meeting and I found it rather interesting. Some goals I have for Apollo are to learn more about topics that I find intriguing, learn how to be better with my time management, and improve on my art and writing skills.
