Senior, Mt. Pleasant High School

As a senior at Mt. Pleasant High School in San Jose, I am looking forward to continuing my journalism studies (which I began last year) in the years to come.

I have been an active member of my graduating class, the Class of 1997, as well as the Student Senate, since my freshman year. In the 1993-1994 school year, I was a member of the JV Cheerleading Squad. The following year, I joined the JV Song Girls, but took a break from it all during my junior year to help out my fellow classmates as the Junior Class Treasurer. And finally, I am currently on the Varsity Show Cheer Squad. In the future, I hope to attend either Mills College or the College of Notre Dame to major in Communications.

I enjoyed this experience and greatly appreciate this opportunity that I was given. I found Janese Swanson to be an exciting, down-to-earth (yet, still outlandish in a creative manner of speaking) role model. This is one woman that should be cloned.
