What can you do when you are only 17 years old, know you like to sew and want to help the world?
For Seneca Valley High School senior Rosie Bliss, the answer to that question enabled her to meet and work with several like-minded people, culminating in a five-day working trip to Haiti.
Her desire to help out in a developing country began several years ago, when her older brother, Gareth Bliss, returned from Haiti, where he volunteered in the pediatric ward of a clinic.
Bliss didn’t want to help out in a medical clinic. Instead, she decided to combine her love of sewing and all her mother’s cloth scrap pieces into something meaningful.
