USA Swimming - DC Waves National Team (9th to 12th)

DC Waves is Washington, DC’s competitive swim team for the city for student athletes competing in USA Swimming competitions. I'm good friends with my coach and all of my teammates and collectively we lift each other up to continue to improve. I decided to join swimming because I felt it would be a sport that I could really focus on personal improvement and it would also teach me discipline as our practices are very early in the morning, 5 - 7 AM five days a week. For me personally my best stroke is freestyle and breaststroke and I work with my coach to improve on these events. I've gone to several National swim meets and participated in my team's own Black History Swim meet which brings athletes from all across the east coast to participate. I have also helped break a team record in the 200 freestyle relay. I have also swam for PG pool where I broke several records on a local level and helped encourage and support other swimmers who were younger than me.
National Community Church - Washington, DC (9th to 12th)

National Community Church is a non-denominational Christian Church that seeks to uplift the Washington DC community and beyond. My family has been attending since I was born. The church has a mission of being in the middle of the market place and meets in a multi-use space (church, commercial performance venue, pre-school and soon to be small business incubator space) next to historic Navy Yard in Washington, DC called the Capitol Turnaround. On Sundays I volunteer my time in Sunday School classes working with kids to help teach them about our faith and be a positive influence. Additionally I am a student leader for the church's youth group and have assisted with a number of production projects including video and graphic design.
Homes not Borders - Non-profit who resettles refugees in Washington, DC area (9th to 12th)

During my high school years I've had the opportunity to participate in a number of service projects and activities to benefit others. I think the greatest of these projects was when I went to volunteer for Homes Not Borders. Homes Not Borders is a non-profit organization based in Washington DC. They help refugees who have been displaced from foreign countries by providing them with a year's worth of rent for an apartment as well as all the furniture, hygiene and cooking supplies they would need. They do this by collecting donations and taking on volunteers to help set up the apartments. I started this work during Covid just before the US withdrew from Afghanistan in 2020. It was hard work, but I instantly saw the impact that it was making for families who had lost everything. These families were able to come to the United States and feel welcomed and given a place to live and start their new lives. I was also able to connect Homes not Borders with a friend of mine working on his Eagle Scout project and he was able to set up a drive to collect household goods and set up a tracking system to further support their mission. It has been awesome to see how far Homes Not Borders has come from being a small startup charity to now having their own equipment to move furniture and collect donations and a warehouse to store them in. This isn't work that I'm obligated to do, but it is work that I feel compelled to do and I will continue to volunteer as long as there is the need.
Student Government (11th to 12th)

I'd always wanted to be part of Student Government, but until my 11th grade year, I never felt there was a position that really suited my skill set. In the 11th grade when the position of Communications Chair was added to Student Government, I knew this was a role I could do well serving in. I've done a lot of work in video production and graphic design and I believed that these skills would help Student Government with advertising events and spreading awareness. I decided to run for the position and created a lot of promotional material including videos and posters to promote my campaign. I ended up winning the position and now work each week to help promote student events and coordinate with teachers and students. Even had I not won the position, I believe I still would have volunteered my services to Student Government because the work that they do benefits my school's community and I would want to support it.
Troop 33 Boy Scouts of America - Takoma Park, MD (9th to 12th)

Boy Scout is an international organization that helps kids get outdoors, learn numerous life skills, and create long-lasting friendships. Some of the highlights for me in Scouting are camping, cooking, high adventure and hiking. I also enjoy the opportunities that Scouting gives me to have a number of cool experiences. I have been to Philmont Scout Reservation, the largest Scout Reservation in the United States and done a 12-day backpacking trip over the course of 90 miles. I've also achieved the rank of Eagle Scout and been a Senior Patrol Leader, the Scout who’s responsible for leading our entire 50 boys Troop. The number of things that Scouting has taught me and the memories that it has given me I'll remember for years to come.

Digital Media Class and TV Program - DC International School Dragon TV (9th to 12th)

Dragon TV is a digital media class and TV program that I helped found at my school in 2022. The class gives students an opportunity to get their first look at the film industry through the experience of producing a TV program for our school and community. I'm a producer on the show and I mainly work behind the camera although I have helped host different segments. I enjoy both the news coverage part of video production and also the artistic storytelling part. The classes taught me most of the things I know today about t video cameras, before Dragon TV I only had experiences in photography. I am also proficient in Premiere Pro as my editing software of choice, I can set up and conduct my own interviews, I can properly light scenes, and I am aware of proper camera settings and placement. The class is also allowed for me to participate in a number of things outside of school including PBS NewsHour Summer Academy and Student Television network.

Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) Student Reporting Labs (SRL) (11th to 12th)

PBS NewsHour student reporting Labs is a division of PBS that specifically works with students in order to teach them about journalism and video. I have worked with them on a number of projects that have aired on PBS NewsHour Including a story called “Arizona camp teaches foster children cowboy skills”. In fact I worked on that story when I was attending the PBS NewsHour Summer Academy where I worked with industry professionals and other enthusiastic students. I've also had my work featured on the student reporting Labs website. One of my pieces was “These students are learning to cook global cuisine”. I was also one of PBS’s 20 under 20 student storytellers for 2022.
