I'm the crazy cat lady. I don't know if this is Community service but I feed 30 cats. I applied for this scholarship because of my high GPA. Does bodybuilding have the athletic component? Oceans are suffering because of humans. Picking up trash from humans at the beach is also a good way to get excercise while helping the earth.
