Clubs & Activities: For the three years I have been at Mountlake Terrace High School, I have not joined any clubs but I plan to join one club this Fall. The club I plan to join is ECO Club at my school because they are a wonderful group of individuals who helping in our community. Activities wise I haven’t really gotten too involved but maybe down the line in school I will get more involved in school-related activities.
Awards: Rotary International Student of the Month last year
Community Service: I have not done any type of community service, but right now in my math for life class first period we are getting baggies of toiletries ready to take to homeless people at a place called Mary’s Place in Seattle. I do plan to volunteer at a soup kitchen here in Mountlake Terrace and also a food bank. Helping others is something I’m really passionate about.
Future Educational Goals: My goal would be to prepare to face situations that are difficult to handle because what I want to do in the near future involves some critical thinking and hardships. My other future educational goal is getting out of my bubble of being afraid to share in front of others because I know that in college and jobs there is a lot of speaking in front of others.
Future Career Goals: To be a Child and Family Social Worker. I want to help children or teen adults who struggle in their homes and other situations feel safe and know there are others out there to help them. I’d also like to make their living environment safe. My other goal is to be a nurse. I want to take care of elderly people. They need our help even if they refuse it. Helping the elderly is something I have always wanted to do. To make sure that someone’s mom or dad is being taken care of right is such a wonderful feeling.
Anything else we should know? My favorite type of music is rhythm & blues. I love macaroni and cheese. If I was the last one of earth and I had a too choose what to survive on it would be macaroni and cheese. I love being a teaching assistant for the counseling office and helping the attendance office with passes, too. I also love being a teaching assistant for the wonderful ladies in the chef room: Mrs. Nelson, Mrs. McFadden and Mrs. Anderson.
