    Hi Nancyho,

    Please eliminate the word "wanna" from your vocabulary.

    Amy is energetic lady who actively participated in sports, music and volunteer work. She [wants to live] [lives] life to the fullest.

    Hi
    I'm not a teacher but I think the sentence has a number of mistakes.

    1. Amy is an energetic lady...

    2. Amy is and participated don't seem to fit. I think you should use participates instead.

    If anyone disagrees plz let me know.

    2. Amy 'is' and 'participated' don't seem to fit. I think you should use 'participates' instead.

    The clue is the Title of the thread, "For graduation".
    What Amy did at school is now, well, nostalgia. Sounds like she has weeks to go, and this is for the Yearbook, or a job reference. It is describing her 'participation' whilst she was in high school, and when this sentence is read, those days will have gone - hence, the past tense "actively participated".

    You are completely right about the "an" though - I missed that!
