Maxwell Zigterman

U.S. Youth Ambassador

Hello! My name Max/Maxwell and I am a senior at Portage Northern High School. I have been a Special Olympics athlete since I was 8yrs old. I have competed in skiing, bowling, track and field, basketball, soccer and softball. For Portage Northern, I run Cross Country and Track & Field and am kicking for the Football Team this year. I am also a Link Crew Member, helping new students, and a Michigan Special Olympics YAC member for the second year. Last year, with the help of my teacher, Mrs. Hall, I started a Special Olympics Unified Basketball Team, and a Unified Club, at my school. I was able to be the leader of the Unified Club. I loved it because I love inclusion and I have never been able to lead. This gave me the opportunity to lead and spread Inclusion, not just in our club, but throughout our school.
