With all the energy we use on a day to day basis there is significant effect on where it comes from. In the US most still comes from non renewable resources that release CO2. This selection of energy needs to have more choices for renewable sources. If something doesnt change not only will the price for KWH of energy go up but also the temperature and living conditions on earth would get worse from the pollutants released. I would love to help in the realistic side of problems, installing solar panels on roofs to hopefully reduce the need for energy that comes from this like gas and coal. I could help sell designs or solar modules in general to help spread the word of alternate energy sources. I could sell them as an investment rather than a savior to make people feel more justified for buying it as more benefit to them than the community around them. If we brought them into a trend or new house style it could also help boost sales.

I am a Thinker, I usually spend most of my time just thinking to myself. A thing I will definitely work on is being persistent with my goals, sometimes I just don't put energy behind my work and I do the minimum that is required so if there is a goal that I for sure I want to complete then I will put 101% effort in it. Some of interest which might be attributes to potential careers is being informed about politics, writing poetry, TV shows and things that make you think for a while. Some hobbies I want to be more involved with are writing poetry, keeping up with the news, practicing with the guitar, learning a new language and going to the gym. I want to improve my knowledge on the world so I can hopefully improve the world with either a friendly face or an important decision maker.

Right now our world isn't in the best of conditions we are taking advance of the environment is given to us and while there have been some improvements there is still a long way to go. That's why I'm looking forward to a career in having the ability to create change and improve the world because this is our home. I am more of a hands-on type of person I would like to be able to build something or be doing labs on things the reason why I like the hands-on projects is that it feels rewarding to see all the work you have done in the finished project. That reflects in my hobbies as well I like growing plants and flowers because it is a fun hands-on activity to do and it is so nice to see the outcome of all your hard work, especially plants because you can eat them afterward. While I'm an independent person, I can still be in groups because while I prefer groups there is still that rewarding feeling of being a part of something and being able to not just see your ideas but there. That is why the STEM field is the path for me because math is my favorite subject, like science, and technology, and I know I want to some type of difference in the world, and being in the STEM playing my strength I can make a difference.

These issues most strongly align with my interests, and I would love to contribute to the solution to these problems.

Arroyo High School

Since time immemorial, a plethora of issues have plagued history and have terrorized billions of lives with the utmost travesty. Of these societal and global dilemmas, none have been more eternally problematic neither dramatically perpetual than the issue of waste reduction. Such an issue deserves heightened attention, and I am willing and confident to bring it to light, as well as to present resolutions that can ameliorate (or completely eradicate) the growth of waste on the planet. I am an inquisitive, self-confident, and a rather energetic individual who challenges himself as if it were a household task to fulfill. As such, working to implement waste reduction plans on a legislative or executive level, or to provide recommendations for present governments to abide by, are what I know to be the most effective methods in seeing change. I write stories, poems, and play computer or card games as a hobby where the school subjects of history and foreign languages are what I love most.


Arroyo High

I find that my patience and ability to understand and listen to people has helped me come this far, and will continue to be beneficial in the long run, both for myself and others. I feel as my experience with working with and teaching young children has helped me express myself more creatively. This expands my interests in creative and artistic fields such as playing/writing music to tell stories that will appeal to others and hopefully make an impact and influence them. I aim to create closer communities among people, especially at a young, impressionable age, where even a little can go a long way. Additionally, I also hope to teach others about the importance of taking care of ourselves and others, showing that we are all human. I have always seen myself as a musician, and as a musician, I believe it is important to convey messages that can bring people alike together, and also make a positive impact to guide/influence others to make good decisions.



the most interesting job I think I would like is a photographer. because photography can capture moments in life and time that can educate inform and inspire people. It can bring attention to social issues and help people understand cultures and different perspectives. it can also help keep a healthy environment because you can take a picture of a place in nature or in the wild that has never been touched before and it can help people understand how nature changes and how humans impact the world and change the environment.


Oceanside Highschool

I am understanding and an artist. I enjoy video technology as well as nature and the human body. I wish to apply these interests and skills to learn about humanity's greatest secrets and learn more of us. After almost a century of research conducted upon the human body, we've only found and understood a Milligram of our DNA. I wish to use my artistic abilities and knowledge of video technology to discover and show of the secrets of our body. Not only that, but understanding the human body, would allow us to truly understand the mind, specifically criminal ones.


Oceanside Highschool

My strengths are efficient, persistent, well-organized, responsible, ambitious, patient, and a nature lover. I am interested in making Earth healthy again not for the sake of humanity but for the sake of all the other animals, ecosystems, and habitats that humanity has or will destroy.

My selected environmental challenges lie in pollution for land, air and water.


Grange Middle School

I'm an abstract thinker. I like to think of random things and let my mind go places. I've noticed that I usually make up stories and/or fake scenarios in my head unconsciously. One of my other interests are taking care of children. I've always wanted to imagine children as a big part of my future. With these two traits, I have come up with the idea of being a child caretaker, while also having a side job of writing novels or children's books.

I also like to use my hands, build things, tinker with machines/vehicles, because my dad and my brother do that a lot and I aspire to be like them sometimes. In my career I hope to help people, like for example: help build sustainable communities , clean and reduce waste in communities.
