Tell us about yourself.

  1. I am 17 year old senior in high school who lives in California. I enjoy politics and reading. I have one younger sister who is 15. In my spare time, I work with little children and teach them the basics of peewee soccer. I also teach children’s bible classes at my church, and am very active in my community through a leadership program my city sponsors. I love watching history documentaries as well.
  2. My best experience so far in high school has been being involved in programs like Link Crew and Leadership. Link Crew provides incoming freshmen with 2 upperclassmen mentors, and the mentors help guide them through their first year of high school. Being a mentor to underclassmen has been such a fun experience and I’m grateful I got to have a profound impact on their lives. Leadership is a great way for me to get to know other people in my grade, and make sure I stay involved in all our schools various events.

  1. The major that I plan to pursue is political science. Due to this election season, I became very interested in the many intricacies of politics. Also, I love history, and politics fits hand in hand with it. You can learn from others policy mistakes, find out what doesn’t work, and avoid scandals and mistakes within your own campaign.
  2. In five years, I plan to be graduated from college with a major in political science and a minor in journalism. Hopefully, I will find a job as either a politician or working in political journalism. If I want to continue my schooling beyond undergrad, then I will go to law school to become a lawyer.
  3. I hope to learn skills that will benefit me in my future career, whatever it may be. An example of some skills I’d like to learn is how to effectively communicate what I want to others, and be more assertive with in my beliefs. I’d also like to develop my critical thinking skills to stay competitive in this rapidly advancing world.
  4. Some extracurricular activities I enjoy are writing. I currently write for a teen magazine called us. I also like being involved in the several leadership groups and helping freshmen acclimate to high school. I tutor almost daily after school in any subject, which has been an incredibly rewarding experience. Teaching Children’s bible classes has also been great.
