Magnet senior Ana Barahona sells a cookie to a hungry student as a way to earn money. However, she plans to use the money in a unique way to help others instead of spending it herself. “In the spring, I’m going to a special needs school in Honduras, and I’m using the money to pay for shipping for clothes and school supplies. I needed a way to get money instead of just asking people, so I decided to have a Christmas bake sale,” Barahona said. Students can find her in the Magnet Lounge selling Christmas tree rice krispies, hot chocolate cookies, and white chocolate popcorn for $1.50.
