Educational Goals: I am in my second year of Running Start at Cascadia College, pursuing my goal of an associate’s degree in science. I have grown a deep interest in computer science and hope to continue my studies at a local university. College application season is upon us seniors and I wish everyone the best of luck!
Career Goals: I hope to find roots in a field with the purpose of helping others through my education in computer science. Currently, issues important to me are environmental science, increasing accessibility to mental health support, and eliminating gaps in social inequities. I will hone my focus as the tides change over the coming years. I want to work with the people who are going to bring about the change we wish to see in our world, if only to just write their programs.
Anything else we should know? I could not thank my community enough for supporting me.
Dimona Levari cultivated my love of math enough to think I could cut it in calculus (three classes into the series and I am still somehow surviving). The Edmonds School District has a real gem, Katie Burnett. With four years of her as my trusty cross country coach at Mountlake Terrace, I can confidently say that she is simply the best. I’m sure my teammates would agree that her ability to bring together a diverse group of kids is something to behold. Special shout-outs to my middle school track coaches, Phillips and Mitchell: You guys have the hearts of champions.
I am grateful for Edmonds Heights’ unique learning environment, which has afforded me the opportunity to earn dual credits in American Sign Language from Seattle Central College, Ethnic Studies from Edmonds College, and Environmental Science and Resource Management from the University of Washington. My teachers went above and beyond each day helping my peers and me to succeed. They just truly and purely believe in us. That love is one of my fondest memories in high school.
