National Spanish Honor Society
I was inducted into the National Spanish Honor Society Spring 2015. Learning Spanish language & culture has broadened my outlook. One day I hope to be able to study abroad in Spain. I am currently in my 4th year of Spanish and I look forward to continue learning to speak the language fluently.
Mothers Against Drunk Driving
My life has been affected by drunk driving; when I was 2 my father died in a single car collision as a result of his decision to drive drunk. Now, I speak to people about the dangers of driving under the influence so they won’t make the choice to drive drunk and possibly hurt themselves or others.
Steel Drums & Percussion Band Member
Music is a connection. For me, music connects me to my father and his Jamaican culture. I didn’t have a chance to get to know him because he died in a car crash three weeks before my second birthday. Joining the steel drums class at school made me feel more connected to him.
Business and Financial Books
Reading books and articles about business, entrepreneurship and investing have helped educate me in business and finance. I am interested in learning as much as possible so that I am well versed in financial literature to prepare me for my life and career.
