Ant

SOAR High School

It is time for change. Our environment is wounded and in need of help. We -- all people -- should be pushing for more sustainable green energy resources and limits on pollutants produced by large manufacturing industries. However, many have proven that they are unwilling to change. So, we must create a solution. I hope to channel my proficiency in 3D modeling, computer programming, drive to do better, and desire to create in order to optimize/innovate on current green energy sources. Years of environmental malpractice has damaged our communities sometimes beyond recognition; we must be willing to be changemakers.

Homestead High School

I am an outgoing person, and I love to teach and train others. Cooperation is a key part of working, and luckily, that is one of my strong points. I enjoy leading teams, from group projects to helping people through problems. Working in groups, helping people, and participating in social activities are some of my strengths and favourite things. I love playing games with my friends, helping others, and meeting/making friends. I want to apply my skills to a career by becoming a teacher or a therapist. Being a teacher could allow me to teach the next generation of humans about what they could become, and show them all their potential. Becoming a therapist could allow me to use my social skills and allow them to get through tough times in their lives. Overall, I think that I could make a big contribution to society, just by utilizing these strengths and interests that I have.

Villa

Chino Hills High School

I believe I am very creative and imaginative in this world, where I think a lot whee i have abstract ideas that I create in my head. I like reading stories, analyzing stories in video games, books or movies, and I have an idea of creating clothes in the future. I the same time I think I have an idea of design and art, I like judging whatever clothes is good and what is bad. This also creates a path towards reselling or marketing clothes and shoes that can either flop or sell. I seem to have the idea of marketing. I'm also very active with a lot of things, where I believe i can be a police officer if I took it serious.

Our world today is facing a global crisis. Kids throughout the world are suffering physically from no shelter to starvation. Teens throughout the world are suffering emotionally from depression, loneliness, and stress.
This has become a worldwide epidemic of kids and teens having to deal with all sorts of problems that are more apparent now then ever before. To make a change in the world, I want to help kids deal with these problems. In order to do this, I need to be understanding of whatever situation anyone might be going through while also learning to be patient at all times. I want to cooperate with other people to help me in helping kids and teens but also be independent in the choices I believe are right. It is important for me to be observant of what is going on around me in order to help other kids deal with their problems.
