My name is Zack Truman. I’m a student at Towson University. I’ve been helping my family with Truman charities since I was about 6 years old. I first started public speaking at our charity events when I was very young, it really helped build my confidence. I love working with Truman charities and I love helping my family with all of the events. Helping people in need is something I am passionate about and I want to help as many people as I can, now and in the future. I hope to continue supporting Truman Charities and keep helping people in need and one day being a leader of Truman Charities
