Charlie has raised more than $10,000 for Water For Sudan, a nonprofit that drills wells in Southern Sudan, and each year she puts on a theater workshop and raises money for El Faro Orphanage, Shelterbox, Sr. ethel’s work in Missionvale, South Africa , and Lance Armstrong’s Livestrong. Charlie was also this year’s TPHS homecoming queen.
She goes to UC Berkeley in the fall to major in development studies, society and the environment.
