Paige M.

Hi everyone! I’m so excited to be back at Agawak this summer! Kentucky is too far away from the blissful waters of blue lake where you will find me in the KWAK station blasting all the fun music this summer. If not I’ll probably be up at Arts and Crafts or in Happy Camper for Drama activities. I’m so excited for my second year as a counselor. Some fun facts about me, I have a collection of Minnie Mouse Ears and Disney Pins from the 19 times I’ve been to Disney World and probably know WAY too many Disney Facts. My favorite food is sushi, preferably Philadelphia Rolls but I’ll try any kind. My favorite EP’s are Treasure Hunt and Campfire. I can’t wait for Summer 2020!!
