Name: Makenna Schumacher

 

Position/Title: Cascadia Activities Board Chair

 

High School you graduated from (and city):

Bothell High School Class of 2014: Bothell, Washington

 

What are you studying?

I am currently studying Business.

 

Why did you choose to attend Cascadia?

I chose to attend Cascadia College because my twin sister had attended for Running Start and loved her experience. I also believed that attending a two-year college would be more beneficial for myself financially and academically as I live very close to the school and can’t see myself going away to a university just yet (hopefully after this year though!).

 

What are your hobbies/interests?

If there is anything I love doing, it is theater. I love acting, dancing and singing more than anything in the world (If I didn’t want to spend the rest of my life in Community Theater, I would continue to do it as a full time career but I am no Emma Watson). I also play guitar and enjoy driving around with my friends blasting show tunes; however, I mostly listen to EDM or alternative music like the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s, Muse or Florence and the Machine. I really enjoy photography as well and, as of recently, started my own non-professional photography business. To end my long list of things that I enjoy doing, I also love spending time with my family and binge watching Glee, Orange is the New Black or American Horror Story on Netflix.

 

What are your plans after Cascadia?

After Cascadia, I hope to transfer to the University of Washington Seattle to study Business Marketing and Sales. I also am deciding on whether or not I want to minor in something along the lines of graphic design or some other random thing that I enjoy doing. Cascadia is providing me with the schooling I need, at an affordable cost, to achieve my Associates in Business to transfer to UW.

 

Why should students get involved in Cascadia Student Life?

Students should get involved with Cascadia Student Life because it creates a new dimension to the typical “community college life.” When I first came to Cascadia last year, I didn’t know about the opportunities on campus, such as student life, and ended up just going to school to learn. And as much as that what school is for, college has so much more to it than just class time and studying. Student Life gives students the opportunity to make friends on campus while going to fun, entertaining and even educational events. It is an amazing opportunity and I think that everyone who has the ability to get involved should take it!

Name: Athalia Santoso

 

Title/Position:Entertainment Coordinator 

 

What are you studying?

Computer Science

 

Why did you choose to attend Cascadia?

I heard about Cascadia from a friend who strongly recommended me to go here because it is a great school, with lots of diversities going on and it is located far from crowds, which I prefer more to study. It is also located next to University of Washington Bothell, which makes everything become more satisfying because we can share facilities, such as the library and Activities & Recreation Center.

 

What are your hobbies/interests? (outside of school)

I enjoy playing music especially piano and guitar. I enjoy reading books and watching movies too. Romance and fantasy are the most preferable.

 

What are your plans after Cascadia?

I am planning to transfer to a 4 year university, getting my Bachelor Degree in computer science. Cascadia has taught me lots of basic information and has prepared me to go to a university, which is more beneficial for me rather than going directly to a 4 year university, since I am an international student. Moreover, I didn’t know any of the basics about programming before, thus I first time learned how to use Java and C++ in Cascadia, which literally helps a lot.

 

Why should students get involved in Cascadia Student Life?

Cascadia student life is a great association which teaches us how to do well in organization, meeting new people and socialize, and also thinking critically and creatively.

Name: René Hsu

 

Title/Position: Arts and Awareness Coordinator

 

High School you graduated from (and city):

Huaxing high school (Taipei)

 

What are you studying?

Business, Human Resources

 

Why did you choose to attend Cascadia?

My parents were deciding between CA and WA, and they eventually sent me here.

 

What are your hobbies/interests (Outside of school)

Video games, travel, play with my cat, eat etc.

 

What are your plans after Cascadia?

I plan to transfer to UW Seattle hopefully, and if I could, I wish to work internship at Google.

 

Why should students get involved in Cascadia Student Life?

I found it very interesting to plan events for people, especially those that share the same culture as me. It is usually hard for international students to study abroad, and I think this would be my great opportunity to give my love and care to other people. So far this is my reason for getting to work as CABbie. Besides mentioned above, I believe it is a great opportunity for students to learn to balance between work and study and an even greater chance for students to accumulate experiences besides academics.

CAB Social Issues and Family Programs

Name: Angel Resurreccion        

 

Title/Position: Social Issues and Family Programs Coordinator

 

High School you graduated from (and city)

I am currently attending Inglemoor High School in Kenmore, Washington. I am graduating in 2016!

 

What are you studying?

I am currently studying literature as my major but I also have a huge interest in sociology and psychology.

 

Why did you choose to attend Cascadia?

I chose to attend Cascadia through the Running Start program because I felt that it was an amazing opportunity to extend my learning and earn college credits early. I love being a step ahead and plus, I didn’t fit in very well in high school anyways!

 

What are your hobbies/interests?

I love playing around with makeup by trying new, unique looks (I wore electric blue lipstick to school and everyone loved it!). I was strongly considering going to beauty school after Cascadia to become a makeup artist, however I think that I’m going to pursue makeup as more of a hobby. I also love shopping and bending the rules of fashion. I love writing fiction and poetry and that’s why I chose to study literature. I’m passionate about music as well- my favorite genres are rap/hip hop and alternative rock and some of my favorite artists are FKA Twigs, Spooky Black, Purity Ring, Bones, Tigers Jaw, Arctic Monkeys, ODESZA, Weezer, Chris Travis and Beastie Boys (basically anything that sounds really odd, that’s the best kind of music).

 

What are your plans after Cascadia?

My plans after Cascadia are to transfer to a university where I will get my BA in Literature and Masters in Secondary Education, minoring in either sociology or psychology and then getting a job as a english/literature high school teacher somewhere in Seattle. Later on I might consider going back to school so that I can teach in college! I’ve wanted to teach English since I was in the third grade.

 

Why should students get involved in Cascadia Student Life?

Students should get involved in Cascadia Student Life because it’s a great way to be involved in something bigger and also an outlet to meeting really nice people that go to the same school as you! Being in Student Life makes school become so much more than just books and essays.
