What are the biggest challenges you faced or are facing as a high school student? How did you overcome those obstacles?
The greatest challenge I had in high school was adapting to a new school, a new country, and speaking a different language than my own. I moved to San Jose with my family when I was 16 and right away started Junior year. It was probably one of the most difficult experiences of my life. The first few months were terrible, but little by little I began to adapt to my new environment. I was very fortunate to have been welcomed by students and faculty of my high school. Though I only spent 2 years in high school, I really had a great experience for which I am grateful.
What are your educational goals? What are you doing to reach those goals?
At this point, I wish to attain a post graduate degree connected to education. I am debating whether to seek a masters in counseling, administration, or bilingual education.
What advice would you give others to be successful in high school and college?
1. Work hard and stay focused in school.
2. Have a good relationship with teachers and mentors.
3. Get involved in activities outside of the classroom.

6. Get an internship.
7. Attend school dances, sport and cultural events.
8. Study hard for the SATs, ACTs, GREs, and other tests.
9. Join study groups. Effective way to prepare for tests.
