Chapter 186 – Moorpark High School
Adviser Candace Sunseri
Harsimer Bal plans to attend UCLA in the fall to study Biology, and eventually become a dermatologist. While attending Moorpark High School, Simer is serving as her chapter’s president and has been working on several community service activities even during the current pandemic. Heavily focused on both the community and the environment, she has spent countless hours working with the Surfrider Foundation and Ruben Castro Charities.
Candice Sunseri, her CSF Adviser states that “She has provided more service opportunities than ever before, even during the pandemic.” Simer has also worked heavily with the Our Minds Matter (OMM) club. She recognized that there was an extreme lack of mental health resources at Moorpark and many students were suffering with depression and anxiety and worked hard, especially during the pandemic, to provide students a safe place to talk about their struggles while offering practical solutions to reduce stress and increase self-esteem.
After scoring a perfect 36 on the ACT, we can not wait to see the problem she decides to tackle next.
