Why Aubree Hoepper deserves the special edition lovebug; Aubree’s “ Drive for Strive”

Aubree Hoepper, my 21 year old 5’2” blue eyed daughter deserves to win this Love bug 2 contest. She is a senior at Boston University and plans to attend medical school to pursue her dream of becoming a pediatrician. She will be incurring an enormous debt to attain her goal and will need a car to zip around Boston for her volunteer and educational obligations. Aubree has dedicated herself to her education, family and helping those less fortunate.

She is the coordinator for a program called STRIVE - dedicated to children with sickle cell anemia. She also works in a preschool and tutors. This summer she worked with children with disabilities at an unpaid internship program in Ireland, an opportunity she paid for herself to do. Aubree’s dedication to helping others is amazing, Whether giving encouragement to a sick patient or bringing a smile to a child’s face, she has a special gift.

Aubree’s dream of owning a Volkswagen beetle began when she rode in our neighbor’s vintage beetle and was further influenced when at age 12 she spotted the limited edition powder blue beetle She told me that one day she was going to own that car. This resulted in our family purchasing a silver beetle in 2002. This limited edition blue 2010 Volkswagen Beetle is a metaphor for Aubree…compact, efficient, economical, fun-spirited and distinctive.

Winning this contest would not only fulfill a childhood dream but would help her accomplish her goals.

Also contribute to her fundraising effort to help send STRIVE kids to Camp visit her web page at http://teamholeinthewall.kintera.org/boston2011/aubree
