Molly Shore Returning from the National Teen Leadership Program conference at Chapman University in Orange County, Providence High School sophomore Ashlei Brandt-Limbaga said she wants to run for class president next year because she has overcome her fear of losing. "Now my goal is to go out there and meet new people," Ashlei, 15, said, adding that it is no longer important to her if people vote for her. Ashlei possesses this new-found confidence because she learned at the conference last week to come out of her 'comfort zone,' a state of mind that requires no risk-taking, she said.

Jessica died Nov. 16 of cystic fibrosis, a disease she fought her entire life. Cystic fibrosis, a genetic disorder attacking the respiratory, digestive and reproductive systems, is generally considered a childhood disease because most patients do not live past their 20s. The severity of the condition is determined largely by how the lungs are affected.
