Jill Venkatesan | Bullard Beats Cancer

Jill's Students of the Year Fundraiser

Jan 21, 2022

Jill Venkatesan is a sophomore at Bullard High School.  She plays Soccer for the Valley United Soccer Club and the Bullard Junior Varsity Team.  Jill is active in her church youth group and enjoys going to summer camp at Yosemite Bible Camp every summer.  At school Jill takes advance placement courses and works hard to maintain her GPA in preparation for majoring in Biochemistry to prepare her for her goal of medical school.  She plans to have a carrier as an endocrinologist one day. She is active in her sophomore class as she participates in the 2024 club.  Jill’s dad had non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma before she was born and when asked to be part of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Student of the Year campaign, Jill said, “This is my chance to help others who helped my parent’s years before.  I also deal with lifelong medical issues, as a type one diabetic since the age of two and this is my opportunity to help improve the lives of others in ways that others have helped me.”
