School: Timberline High School in Lacey.
Parents or guardians: Robert Wind and Kum Sop Wind. My parents are Jun No Lee and Ho Suk Lee. I live with my friend, Kyle, and his family. My parents live in Korea.
Best personal achievement: Holding a class in the Leadership Lock Down. I taught 50 or so kids about social awareness, and I think almost all of them took away something from it.
How I spend my time: If I get any free time, I like to catch up on Sports Center or chill on Facebook.
Favorite subjects: AP chemistry. Even though it’s hard work, it’s also really chill. My teacher, Mr. Vandewark, even puts on reggae music on work days.
Favorite movie: The “Rush Hour” series. Jackie Chan is so creative when fighting.
Favorite book: “Brave New World” by Aldous Huxley.
Dream job: Researcher who gets to travel around the world and learn different cultures.
Someone I respect: Ms. Barr, my leadership teacher. Her desk is never clean because there are so many things she’s worried about. But she gets the job done, whatever it is.
The hardest part of being a student is: Homework. I’m a major procrastinator.
My ambitions or career aspirations include: I want to learn the different standards in each culture that I get to experience (if I do get to), and learn the way they think. People from different places think differently because different things are OK with different cultures, and that’s really interesting to me.
Someone famous I would like to meet: Jessica Alba. She’s really pretty.
Someday, looking back on my life, I’ll be able to say: “What was I thinking taking all kinds of AP classes my senior year?”
Biggest challenge facing teenagers today: Trying to go to college.
One thing in the world I would change if I could: To have my parents live in the United States with me. Even though I love the family that I live with, I still wish my own family could be here with me.
