Balancing school and my other extracurricular activities, I interned a minimum of 12 hours a week for State Senator Tony Sticklands congressional campaign. While on his staff I served as one as his coordinators for Get Out The Vote activities as well as his occasional speechwriter. In addition, I performed other clerical tasks such as creating spreadsheets, flyers, and planning presentations.
I have been an active member of the American Cancer Society for a total of four years and counting. While volunteering there I have been promoted to Relay Captain and Technology Chairman in which I was an important member of the committee that organized and put on Relay For Life events for the city of Ojai.
As the previous Opinion Editor for The Foothill Dragon Press I improved one of the weakest sections by infusing editorial writing with broadcast segments and elevating the quality level in which editorials were written. I now serve as an opinion writer and have received awards (First Place award on behalf of the Ventura County Star) for some of my written pieces.

In the course of four years I intend on double majoring and double minoring. My majors include International Affairs and Latin American/Hemispheric Studies, while my minors consist of Spanish Language and Economics.
I am a honors graduate from Foothill Technology High School; achieving recognition for being Magnum Cum Lade, Boy of the Year for Social Sciences AND Community Science, Bilingual, and academic excellence. My time at Foothill Technology High School has been spent improving my skills and talents in an attempt to prepare myself academically for college,
My name is Otto Raul Tielemans and I am a motivated, ambitious, self-motivated student who is currently on his way to the East Coast in order to study at The George Washington University located in Washington, D.C. Always motivated to be an active member of the community and explore the world beyond my doorstep; I hope to obtain an internship or job at a foreign policy Think Tank where I can put my research, speech writing, and editorial crafting skills to work.
