Granite Hills High School

Summary

I am a senior at Booker T. Washington High School. I am enrolled in six Advanced Placement Courses and hold a cumulative weighted GPA of 4.7. My accademic interests are diverse: I love literature and using the written word to express myself, I keep a field journal of independent studies in Natural History, and am completing a Advanced Placement 3D Art Portfolio.

Objective

I am a high school senior at Booker T. Washington in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I am applying to Warren Wilson College next year where I plan to major in Environmental Studies with a focus in Sustainable Agriculture. After graduation I hope to work in improving people's connection to the earth through food: as a school-garden manager, as an imfluencer of food policy, or as an organic farmer.
