Hard-working freshman student keeps busy with athletics

Freshman student Jessica Anguiano has always enjoyed different extracurricular activities for the past few years. She likes the way they make her look in the eyes of her teachers and how they will look on her future college applications.

Anguiano participates in cheer, band, powerlifting, and track and field at La Joya Highschool. Each morning, she travels to the neighboring school to participate in the activities. Previously, she danced along with cheer but dropped it because she found it too stressful.

“Just working toward a shared vision with other people and that blood, sweat and tears go into it and this big turnout outcome.” She says that you just become proud of yourself after everything.

“I just think it would give kids a certain purpose,” She says that she would encourage others to participate in extracurricular activities. “and happiness throughout the day to see their friends and work hard to something that they’re going to enjoy.”

The activities are not at all easy and are stressful. She says that sometimes it feels like she needs a break but knows that she won’t have them.

“In the end, it looks good, but I also have so many memories that I’m going to look back and be like, “I’m glad I did this and this.”

Carolina Amador, a proud volunteer

Carolina Amador is involved in countless communities despite personal responsibilities, deadlines, college, and high school courses. These include UIL, FBLA, the Leo Club, and volunteering at the nonprofit organization Cancer Kids First.

Amador joined the student council because she wanted to help her peers voice their concerns or opinions. Cancer Kids First and the Leo’s Club allow her to help her community. She feels a sense of attachment to the clubs because they allowed her to receive help from others. She wants to be able to repay the favor to her community.

UIL and FBLA give her a chance to ‘unleash my competitive side’ academically. She says they let her relax and gain skills she knows she can use in the future.

“My absolute favorite part of the student council, Leo’s Club, and the Cancer Kids First organization is the fact that I get to help out others,” Amador said. “My favorite part about UIL and FBLA is the competitive rush that I get.”

She said that she would encourage others to consider joining these organizations.

“I would say to them that by being in these organizations, they will not only get to relish the fact that they will make positive changes to their environment, but they will also be able to have lots of fun!”
