Steven Ray

Rosemont High School

Stemming from my early childhood introduction to the world of technology and computers, I've always wondered what life was like beyond the atmosphere. I have learned from my exposure to my father's work as a mechanic and a conglomerate of collected ideas from several sources such as the reputable Internet or people I've encountered in my life. As a result, the cosmos was always something that stood out to me. I want to walk out into the void and explore what it has to offer. Mainly, I want to strive for discovering new life, new planets, new scientific laws, etc. Understanding the vast universe we live in and piecing together ideologies from gained knowledge through the study of the darkness that surrounds us sounds like a good life, at least to me. Therefore, field work as an astronaut and becoming a researcher in space interests me.

Johnathan M.

El Modena High School

I am creative, imaginative, unconventional, a nature lover, and mechanically inclined. In my free time, I like to read fantasy or dystopian themed books, write my own books, work on cars, dance, take pictures, and watch YouTube videos about my latest interest (which changes like different moods). Subjects that interest me are English, photography, dance, and culinary arts. I currently am working on 3 different books (to match my 3 different general writing moods). The first one is about a zombie apocalypse, the second is about a fantasy world filled with magic, and the third is about street racing and romance. Writing is more of a side hobby, however. What I really aspire to do is become a certified mechanic and open a performance part store with a garage (mechanic shop) next to it. I love cars and everything about them: working on them, driving them, driving motorsports... They are a huge passion for me, and that's what I want to wake up and do every day. I want to wake up and be happy to go to work and do what I love.

Having a career that allows me to use my social/persuasive skills as well as utilizing my organizational and leadership skills is really important to me.
