I consider myself to be organized, reliable and detail oriented. I am proud of being outgoing and taking initiative in situations that may be difficult for some. I believe I am a strong and responsible leader that works well with others and is open to new ideas.
During my four years in high school i was always involved in the ASB class, also known as Associated Student Body. It was my first class in high school and since then i took it every semester. It helped me be more organized, how to take initiative, and work with others to plan and create the events planned by the ASB class. Freshman year I ran to be a sophomore director and I was able to get the position and plan my sophomore year formal dance. As a sophomore I took a big risk and I ran for a position as a school board representative. This was a big risk because the students usually running for this position are juniors. I had an interview with the principal and ASB teacher, as well as the previous school board representatives and got the position. As school board representative I would be in charge of attending the school board meetings and sharing any events going on at SDA at the time, then I would report back to the class and principle about the information given at the meetings. The last year I was able to run for a position I ran for ASB secretary. I was so excited when I found out I got the position and would be able to be a leader for my class once again. As the secretary my job was to take attendance at the beginning of class everyday and have a committee for three to four events throughout the semester to help me plan and prepare for those events. I would work closely with the treasurer to make sure everything we had was correct and approve anything we may need for dances, activities etc.
For both my junior and senior year of high school I was a link crew leader. As a link crew leader I was able to help freshman make the transition from middle school to high school by showing them around the campus, encouraging them to join clubs and answer any questions they had before starting this new chapter. Being a link crew leader helped me stay involve with students that were younger than me because if it wasn't for that, i wouldn't have the opportunity to talk to them or help them ease into high school.
The summer of 2018 I was a participant for Amigos De Las Americas in Yucatan, Mexico. I stayed in a community called X-Canchakan where I lived with a local host family and another participant. In the community there were three of us that stayed with host families learning about their culture and creating a sustainable project in the community. We were there for four weeks in total with each day getting used to the rhythm and living like a local. Previous to starting this journey I had training in my local chapter in San Diego for 35 hours. Participating at 16 years old helped me become more independent and see the world completely different. I came back after the summer stronger, with more leadership skills and appreciation for the experience I had.
I participated for a second summer with Amigos De Las Americas in 2019 in Perez Zeledon, Costa Rica. The previous summer had such a big impact in my life that I decided to take on this adventure again, but this time in a completely different country. I stayed in a community about 20 minutes from the city, in Santa Elena. I had the opportunity to live with two local host families and a partner. We would wake up bright and early, help around the house and get ready to walk to either the community church or elementary school. For our summer project we worked with the church community and painted the entrance during our first week there. It was an awesome opportunity to learn more about the community as a whole and get to know a little bit more about the community members. Our second week in community we were able to visit the elementary school multiple times and interact with the kids, and seeing the projects they were working on in science class. We had fun activities planned to do with them during their recess time and we learned more about what they do day to day at school. This summer we also had the chance to visit a national park for a week with half of the participants being local teens from Cost Rica. That week in the national park gave us the opportunity to build strong connections with teens our age and learn more about their culture. We worked on team building and leadership skills as well as learning about sustainability and cleaning up the trails along the beach.
