Stephanie R.

My name is Stephanie. I enjoy playing soccer and my favorite subjects in school are science and math. Because I like them, I am trying to take as many science and math classes as I can. My future goal is to go to college to study technology and science. I will be taking the SATs in a couple of months and I really want to do well on them.

Aisling M.

Aisling M.

I am a Junior in high school, and currently have a 3.4 GPA. I am taking two AP classes this year. I take a total of six classes, but my favorite is definitely English; I love reading and writing. On the most recent PSAT I took I got an 1890, and I hope to exceed 2000 on the SAT. I hope to go to a very good/competitive college and study business. I dream of working in sports management or some other type of business involving sports.

Matthew R.

Matthew R.

I am Matthew. My goal is to finish college because I want to have a great life. I am hoping to study hard for the SAT and get a good score so that I can get into a good school. In school, my favorite subject is history because I like to learn about the past and I really enjoy reading about other cultures. I am a youth leader and have been working on a project surveying stores that sell tobacco products. I'm trying to get stores in my neighborhood to stop selling tabacco to minors.

Shevaun F.

Shevaun F.

I am 17 years old. I am really good with computers. I like working on them, taking them apart, and putting them back together. I have fixed some computers for my friends. I have taken a few programming classes and I want to learn more. At some point, I want to live in a warm climate, so I am looking at Arizona State University and Florida Institute of Technology.

George R.

My name is George and I am 18. I live with my mom and 3 brothers. I want to be an engineer. I am interested in knowing how machines work, so I think I want to study mechanical engineering. No one in my family has gone to college, and I hope to be the first. I would love to get into M.I.T. but I am also looking at Boston University and Cooper Union. I have never been to New York, but I think it is somewhere I would like to live after I finish school.
