Tell us a little about your high school career: Clubs, sports, activities and things you participated in during high school.
I participated in volleyball since freshmen year.
What are your plans after graduation?
Earn an associates degree in vet technology at Colorado Mountain college.
What memorable moment during the pandemic instilled a key value in you?
The moment I realized I got separated from my friends put me into a different state. I didn't have the motivation I once had before the pandemic. When I heard we were going back in person, it brought me back to life and now I am graduating high school and have a set path down the road.
What three adjectives describe your outlook going forward?
Motivation, kindness, and gratitude.
What do you see as your graduating class' mission to better the world?
To help ourselves and others succeed.
I have played football in 9th and 10th grade, basketball 9th through 11th grade, track and field 9th through 11th grade (got cut off by Covid), and participated in the Fall Plays 10th through 12th grade.
I plan to go to University of Wyoming, where I will pursue a bachelor's degree in Theater.
During the first month of quarantine I remember missing seeing people, and be able to socialize and live the way that I had before quarantine. During this time I realized that I had continually undervalued other people and the joy I get from connecting with them. This realization pushed me through quarantine with the goal of being able to take full advantage of seeing other people again, and enjoying my last year in high school. The stress and disconnection from quarantine made me value every time I am able to see another person, and view every occasion to be social as a prize that has been earned.
Positive, hopeful, and determined.
I see my senior class's mission as spreading awareness and making the United States more progressive, forward thinking and inclusive, especially with the LGBTQ community. A big movement this year within our school was the Black Lives Matter movement, where in each class we had discussions and spread awareness of the struggles that ethnic people suffer everyday. Those discussions pushed myself, and likely many others to join the movement, and support the peaceful protests and petitions.
I've been in the Young Rotarians club since sophomore year and my senior year I became the president. We would organize social events for the community along with fundraisers and donating clothes and necessity items to the homeless community. I've also participated in planning events with student government and working on activities with them, like homecoming and week without hate.
I plan on getting my bachelor's degree in International Relations and Politics overseas.
Recognizing all the internalized hate and selfishness within the community. This has shown me to be more sympathetic when it comes to my peers who are discriminated and overlooked.
Attentive. Zealous. Adaptable.
Overcoming and letting go of outdated ideologies to create a more inclusive and diverse world.
