Athletics: I play Varsity Tennis (and love it)!
Honors: I’ve been heavily involved in honors classes and AP courses throughout high school; I am currently taking four AP classes, including U.S. Government and Politics, Literature and Composition, Environmental Science, and Calculus BC.
Awards: The most significant awards I’ve received have all been through experiences and memorable moments, whether it be through ASB and the events we organize for our school, or through leading a portion of Key Club and the countless hours of community service we put in.
Community Service: Through Key Club, I have been involved in our community and serving the local area - I’ve even gotten the opportunity to expand out of our own Lynnwood community and find ways to serve the greater Seattle area, the Pacific Northwest, and even the world.
Future Educational Goals: I plan on attending a four-year university after high school, whether it be in Washington State, California, or the East Coast.
I would like to major in Political Science or International Relations (or both), and continue to attend school - I would also like to study abroad for a little bit, if possible! To be able to further my educational merit and learn about the world, I would like to travel and explore other cultures and countries, as well.
Future Career Goals: Specifically, I'm not sure what I want to be/do career wise, but there are a few recurring themes that I can see my future job revolving around - human rights. Ever since I became involved with Liberty in North Korea, which is an organization focusing on rescuing and supporting North Korean refugees, I’ve felt an urge to keep fighting for human rights, not just in North Korea, but all over the world. In order for me to become an effective person in this field, I can see myself working for the government, to continue to learn and analyze ways I can support these people and contribute to the world - that’s why I would like to further my education and be informed, alert, and empower others around me to keep up with the world we live in.
