Meet Some of our Ambassadors

Andrew Barrows

Hi, my name is Andrew Barrows, I'm 17, I was born and raised in a small town: Danville, Indiana.I go to Burlingame High School and my passions consist in scuba diving, coding, photography and occasionally playing the ukulele. I have strong feelings towards preserving our environment and trying to have a cleaner planet for futures to come. I joined the ambassadors because I loved the idea behind companies receiving teen insight. I think that receiving our insight is great because teens are trend setters but also because we influence what our parents or others around us do more than any other age group.

Kailey Nichols

My name is Kailey Nichols and I am a junior at Burlingame High School. I am Chinese, Polish, and Irish. I am currently involved in lacrosse, Model United Nations, and the Burlingame Cancer Research Group. In my free time I love to draw and make art. In addition to this, I do lots of volunteering for the National Charity League and I babysit.

Serena Mello

My name is Serena Mello, and I am a 16 year old junior in high school. Outside of school, all of my time is spent at my dance studio, in which I rehearse a minimum of 4 hours Monday through Friday. Dancing has been the largest part of my life for almost 7 years now. Besides performing, education has always been a passion of mine; I’ve dedicated countless hours into schooling and getting my academics to where they are now. The Ambassadors Company has given me an amazing opportunity to help a number of amazing and smart people lead a truly remarkable company. I love working with Maxine and the other Ambassadors to expand the teenage market and help improve the future of our society.

Cory Lane

Hi, I’m Cory Lane. I am a 19 year old male with long red hair and a rather large beard. I attend UCLA, and I am an actor improviser and comedian who enjoys reading and playing video games. I enjoy punk, blues and comedic music as well as indie and dark comedy movies.

Jackie Loiselle

My name is Jackie Loiselle; I’m 17 and from Duxbury, Massachusetts. I go to Choate Rosemary Hall– a boarding school in Connecticut. I lived in Silicon Valley for two years in middle school and love the entrepreneurial world. In my free time, I love playing (ice) hockey and soccer, and I love doing community service. I love working for the Ambassadors because it gives me a say in real world things that I’m actually interested in.

Chris Boennighausen

My name is Chris Boennighausen, I'm 17 years old, and I am a junior at Bellarmine College Preparatory in San Jose. I live in Los Altos, California. My extracurriculars include rugby at Bell, acting, and student council. I have a real passion for caring for the environment, and enjoy going to the beach and surfing. The reason why I love working for The Ambassadors is that there is really no other company around that specifically targets teenagers for consulting. This company truly makes me feel that I am not just giving my own perspective, but the perspective of the young adolescent demographic as a whole.
