Was accepted into and participated in the Junior State of America Summer School last summer at Georgetown University in Washington D.C. It was three weeks long, where I took AP Govt, met senators and debated current issues.

Volunteered for local hospital as a licensed pharmacy assistant and delivered medications to patients.

I worked since last feb. as a staff writer in news/ reporter for the Eastern Washington University newspaper, and started this at 16 years old. My boss doesn't know how old I am. I will continue this job next year.

I just completed a surgeon job shadow at Sacred Heart Medical Center. There were 50 applicants, 4 were chosen, and I miraculously got in somehow. lol. That was very cool.

I was also accepted into the Yale University Junior State program two weeks from now...I am awaiting word from my parents as to whether or not I can go this year. ><

Worked as a library intern the summer before last.

I am going to write a book this summer.


Cross country sophomore year
Violinist in Orchestra (at University too)
Job hopefully
Junior State of America (well, only for one year :) )
Hope to do a really cool senior project involving my Columbia University physics professor and biology.

Staff Writer/reporter for The Easterner

Don't have my SAT I results yet. I will retake it in October. I have a bad feeling about it though....):

Here comes the bad part...my GPA is only a 3.58 at this point. I will work very hard to raise it. IT'S GOING UP. I'm a perfectionist, but I don't want to set myself up for failure. Please let me know if I can get into a top school, or if I just be realistic and start looking at state colleges.

I just took the SAT but I wasn't in tiptop shape (family problems before it--didn't study, it was only a dry run), and I got an 1880. I know that's really low for the schools I want. However, I know that I can raise my score; I want at least a 2100, and I'm studying over the summer.

P.S. I am a white female.
