GPA: 3.35

Clubs & Activities: I am involved in the freshmen orientation LINK Crew. I also play baseball for Meadowdale High School. I am involved in the non-profit organization, Young Life.

ASB: I was an ASB senator for the 2009-2010 school year. I also ran for ASB president.

Athletics: I play baseball for Meadowdale High School as well as recreational basketball with some of my friends through the Boys and Girls Club of Lynnwood.

Honors: I serve Meadowdale High School as the student liaison of the Edmonds School District School Board of Directors. I was also selected to join the committee to help choose our new principal of the 2012-2013 school year.

Awards: I was awarded the leadership trophy for freshman basketball.

Community Service: I serve as a student leader and member of Young Life; a non-profit organization that helps youth learn more about Christianity. I am also involved in Youth Ministry at St. Thomas More Church as an usher during the evening Teen Mass.

Culminating Project: For my culminating senior project I chose to do something unique. I volunteered as a student leader at Young Life while simultaneously managing, preparing, and performing in my own benefit show. The show took place on March 29, 2013 at Roy’s Place in Lynnwood. There were four opening acts and myself and friend, Sam Wooley, were the main act. We raised nearly $2,000 that were all donated to the Kenny Hummel Foundation. I was a very close friend to Kenny and have known the Hummel family my entire life. I miss Kenny every day and I am very happy to have honored his life with my culminating project, Never Forgotten.

Current Employment: I am currently working for the Seattle Mariners as a greeter. I work most home games passing out promotional items or working around the ballpark with various attractions! Let me know when you’re at a game and I’ll come say hi!

Future Educational Goals: I will be attending Washington State University in the fall of 2013. I plan on studying audio engineering and radio broadcasting while I am there. I also plan on looking into some business courses.

Future Career Goals: I would love to work in the music industry. I have been around music my entire life. Both my parents love to sing. I make hip-hop music and I recently took on a big project with my dad by building my own recording studio. It takes up half of my garage and is fully equipped with professional sound equipment that my dad and I have collected as DJ’s, or that I have earned working for the Seattle Mariners. I have recently started learning the guitar. With some help from my mom and some dedication I have taught myself how to play the guitar. I take my music very seriously and plan on producing music for as long as I can! It would be my dream job to work in a professional recording studio as an engineer of sound. Feel free to ask me about my music any time!

Anything else we should know? I believe in order to find happiness in ourselves, our communities, and in the world, we must accept one another because everyone can bring their creativity to life and prove to the world that they are beautiful. I have personally known a handful of people that have been affected by cancer. Most of the people in my community do not know that I too have been affected by the terrible disease. Fortunately, for me, I caught this very rare form of bladder cancer early and am healthy and happy. Unfortunately, for others, this terrible disease has taken life from them. This concept was very difficult to grasp at first. We may not always stand tallest against this monster of a disease, but we can fight for as long as God will let us. Let’s do our part in our community to accept all people, because tomorrow isn’t always promised to us. Remember to smile!
