I have known Ariana for three years as a student in my Algebra 2 Honors and AVID 12 classes. I have always known Ariana to be a hard-working, committed, and responsible student. She was one of the youngest students in my Algebra 2 Honors class during her sophomore year. However, she demonstrated excellent academic performance and did not back down from the challenge of high level math classes. As a math student, she demonstrated her critical thinking skills by the questions and perspective she brought to the class. In addition, she has always shown to have natural leadership skills. Ariana was always willing to step up and lead her group. As a current student in my AVID 12 class, Ariana continues to show exceptional leadership and character. She is always willing to help and collaborate with any of her classmates. Ariana is a perfect example of an AVID student. She has the individual determination to succeed and takes advantage of every resource and learning opportunity. She has maintained outstanding grades in rigorous courses while participating in extracurricular activities every year of high school. She managed to find a balance between her school work and involvement in sports such as cheerleading, volleyball, varsity track and field, and wrestling. In addition, she has served many hours of volunteer work through the MESA club, NHS and Discovery Martial Arts. Her hard work and commitment in and out of the classroom are truly admirable.
