Our Team

Emily Tran
Class of 2018

Hello, my name is Emily Tran and I am a rising Senior currently attending Irvington High School in Fremont, California. I love to sketch in my spare time and take midnight strolls around the neighborhood. I enjoy challenging myself by partaking in a wide variety of extracurricular activities such as volunteer work and clubs. I am currently managing the IHS Rock Climbing Club and The Career Insights Club as an officer, as well as volunteering at the local Tri-City food bank.

I am grateful for the opportunity that the Leadership Initiatives Program has provided me and am excited to help change the world.

Firaol Woldemariam
Class of 2018

I am Firaol Woldemariam and I am a rising senior at Robert E. Lee Highschool. I am a full IB Diploma candidate, so I take all of the most challenging courses offered at my school and I continuously look for service opportunities to connect with my community. As an IB student, I learned to take initiative and make myself well-rounded. I am a Chairperson for the Hispanic Honor Society, and a Special Advisor for an NAACP chapter. Almost every Saturday I go to Sunrise Senior home and conduct group and Individual activities. I also take initiative outside of my own community, my friends and I worked with Operation Smile, which I an NGO that hopes to provide cleft lip surgeries for children in third world countries and our group raised money so that those children would have the money to get surgery and smile once again. I am shaped as a person by the IB values of awareness of our community and other communities.

I am thrilled to use Leadership Initiatives to positively impact other communities improve the lives of many.
