Hi! I’m Rhea Alexander. I am a hardworking and passionate student who loves swimming and dance. I would like to think of myself as funny, but I guess that’s up to others. I love helping people and it makes me genuinely happy.

Student at GLA, 15 year old Latina. Special Olympics Volunteer & a Volleyball player.

I was raised in a Hispanic home with 2 sisters and 1 brother. My life growing up was very toxic with my family but through the years I’ve learned to enjoy many things in life despite my upbringing. I’m in a JROTC program which I love and which I’ve learned so much from. I enjoy playing many sports and keeping my mind set on goals. I want to become a leader in my community and help others become better and want more for themselves and their future. I come from a broken home and I believe all of my life experiences are making me stronger and I want that for those who don’t believe they can.

My name is Yubia Delgado. I’m a Hispanic woman, passionate about creating a better community for the ones currently in it and ones coming.

My name is Brenda Escobar. I enjoy writing, drawing, and film. I am a hardworking individual.

I am a person who sees more to life than just money and work. I believe there is good in everyone or thing just have to look at it a litter closer. I am a person who won’t give up, just simply change the formula.

I am a 16 year old and and an upcoming junior. I go to Global Leadership Academy and I will graduate in 2021. I am a latina who likes to work hard and achieve my goals.

As a senior at Arvada West, I run varsity for the cross country and track teams. I enjoy running, reading, writing, talking, competing and spending time with friends. Outside of that, I’m an amateur vlogger and wish to travel a lot. I’m looking to attend one of the UC schools after I graduate.

My name is Micah Quinn and I’m an upcoming tenth grader. I’ve always taken my academics and school work seriously as well as striving for the future. Outside of that, I love dance, photography, and being with close friends. I am passionate about helping others and the community around me by connecting with others and learning new things along the way.
