Class of 2018
My name is Brett G., and I am a rising Senior. I have a rigorous schedule filled with Honors and AP classes, and love to work hard, but also to have fun.
I am apart of the National Honor Society chapter at my school, play varsity ice hockey, give campus tours as an ambassador, tutor middle school students as a student tutor, and participate in many more activities.
I enjoy giving back to my community by working with an organization called Kids Enjoy Exercise Now where I work with students and young adults with physical and mental disabilities. I love working with the athletes, especially seeing them smile. Even as I head off to college, I hope I can continue to work with the KEEN community.
Working with Leadership Initiatives is a special opportunity as it provides students invaluable first hand experiences as well as the opportunity to make a global impact on developing communities and nations.
Class of 2018
My name is Maggie Maguire and I am a rising senior at Avon High School. This year, I am taking two AP classes because I enjoy challenging myself academically. In the fall, I run cross country, and in the spring, I run outdoor track. I have played the violin for six years and I believe everyone should have music in their lives.
I have danced competitively for thirteen years which has helped me become comfortable presenting in front of large groups of people. In addition, I have taught dance classes at my studio for kids with special needs and at the American School for the Deaf. This experience inspired me when I saw how dedicated and hard working the kids were and how much joy dancing brought to their lives. I am on the board of my school’s LEO club which does various community service activities in our town such as shelter visits or charity walks. I want to maintain an active participant in my community by volunteering at a local pantry where I help people who are struggling financially. I also volunteer at a program called Healing Meals where I make meals for sick people.
I enjoy exploring the world and international development is something I have much interest in. When this amazing opportunity arouse, I knew this was a chance for me to make a difference in someone’s life. I look forward to working with the Nigerian business and improving lives in Nigeria.
Class of 2019
Hello. I am Mary Orms. I’m currently a junior at St. Stephen’s Episcopal School in Austin, Texas, where I board during the school year. I’ve been pushing myself by taking several challenging classes as well as participating in cross country, photography, and theatre. I enjoy reading about impressionism and the search for extraterrestrial intelligence. After graduating high school, it is my dream to attend Columbia University for my undergraduate degree and move on to work in astrophysics. I see this project as an esteemed opportunity for universal betterment and I am beyond thrilled to be included with my team.
Class of 2019
My name is McKayla, and I am a sophomore. I challenge myself academically by taking the pre-AP and AP courses that are available at my school.
My extracurricular activities include the Texas Association for Minorities in Engineering (TAME), Boerne Buddies, academic decathlon, and basketball. I also volunteer with my church and family at various places such as Hill Country Daily Bread and Taking It To The Streets.
I am thankful for the opportunity to work with the Leadership Initiatives Business Alliance Program. I know that this project will not only give me experience for future jobs, but it will help promote positive change globally.
Class of 2019
Hello! My name is Nicole Kim and I am a rising Junior. I am a full time student, sister, daughter, and friend who tries to be there for anyone in need.
Academically, I always make an effort to challenge myself. I am an IB Diploma Candidate and I take every rigorous course offered, such as Honors, AP, and IB. I am strongly leaning towards the engineering field while still keeping my mind open for other science majors in which I have interests. I am also involved with many extracurricular activities. I am the Captain of the girls’ varsity golf team and won league as a freshman. I am very active in community services through clubs, but also volunteer outside of them as well, like at the library, Jimani Inc., etc.. I’m a current participant, while holding some positions, in clubs such as Girls Who Code, Knowledge Bowl (Vice President), Science Olympiad, California Scholarship Federation, and First Robotics (Lead Programmer).
Besides academics, I also enjoy many hobbies. But my most favorite one is to listen to and play music of all sorts. I love everything that has to do with music. Not only because it’s relaxing and challenging, but it also gives me ways to express myself and share with others.
My main goal in life is to help others with anything and everything. Seeing smiles on other people’s faces bring me more joy and satisfaction than doing things to directly please myself. I feel that it is always important to remember that what may seem like a small problem to one person, might be a major issue for another. That is why I believe, when helping others, anything is achievable with effort put in place, making no task too big or too small.
The very exciting and opportunistic International Leadership and Business Summit is such an eye opening experience and I cannot wait to see the resources and information given to me in action.
Class of 2019
Hello! My name is Stran D., and I’m a junior at Champion High School.
Currently I’m taking a few advanced classes in order to prepare myself for college, as I hope to attend the University of Texas at Austin after I graduate. I’m also a part of Interact, a club affiliated with the Rotary Club, where we volunteer at nursing homes, food kitchens, and really anywhere in the community in need of help. I’m really excited to be a part of this program as I see it as a way to not only challenge myself, but to really help people in ways I never thought possible and give back to a community that’s given me so much.
Valeria Salinas Moreno
Class of 2018
My name is Valeria Salinas, and I am going to be a senior this coming fall. In school, I like to challenge myself academically by participating in the International Baccalaureate Full Diploma program. Apart from that, I also take the AP tests that correlate with my International Baccalaureate classes. Moreover, I am in the National Honors Society.
I have been involved in many extracurricular activities, such as basketball and the robotics club. Currently, I am the president of the programming club and the head leader of the robotics club for the SeaPerch competition. I am also the head programmer for the robotics club for the SeaPerch competition and First Tech Challenge Competition.
Furthermore, I help out the community by volunteering in a hospital and giving food to the homeless. In the hospital, I visit kids, bringing them games so that they may be entertained while the parents can take some time off to relax. I also make dog toys out of old t-shirts and donate it to the animal shelters.
I am very excited to be working with the Global Young Innovators Initiative. I believe this program helps our team to learn how to handle a business and to learn how to work together in a short amount of time to do something life changing.
