Molly Erickson may just seem like your average 16 year old, and in many ways you are correct. Erickson spends her days on a farm in New Durham, where she has learned hard work and responsibility. She earns great satisfaction from a long day of hard work on the farm. But, Erickson is not just some regular farm girl, she also has many musical talents. She expresses her passion for democracy and freedom, through songs that she writes and practices on her guitar and piano. But, that is not where Erickson stops she is an honors student, much like Hammond at Kingswood Regional High school. The two have made a great team in the classes they have shared, for the entirety of their high school career. Erickson’s quality effort and grades in school, landed her a spot in the Congress of Future Medical Leaders and Scientists, a highly selective convention, in which only three people from New Hampshire were selected. But this high achievement at such a young age should not separate Erickson from the rest of the teenage population. She holds a job at a local grocery store, Hunter’s Shop and Save, and gives back to the community in which she lives, by volunteering at the New Durham Public Library. Erickson believes in liberty, freedom and justice for all, and that is why she actively promotes the idea of minimum government and maximum freedom.
