  Name: Ellie Boone

 

  Position/Title: Cascadia Activities Board Chair

 

  High School you graduated from (and city):

  South Whidbey High School (Whidbey Island)

 

  What are you studying?

   At Cascadia, I plan to take advantage of the many diverse classes here. I will get a    degree  in integrated studies and learn as many new things as possible.

 

 Why did you choose to attend Cascadia?

 I actually discovered Cascadia College by accident! I chose it because of how unique it  is.  Cascadia is not the traditional community college. Students are really involved here  and  there is always something fun going on around campus. Now I get the opportunity to  do  my part in making the campus a place students want to be at. This is what attracted me in the first place.

 

What are your hobbies/interests?

 In December of 2016, I will be receiving my black belt in martial arts! But, when I'm not chopping pieces of wood in half, I like to nap a lot (just  ask my dad). I also enjoy hitting the mountains for a good ski trip, swimming, and watching a lot of reality TV, especially House Hunters.

 

What are your plans after Cascadia?

 After earning my integrated studies degree from here at Cascadia College, I plan transfer to a four-year university, and major in business. While doing this, I  will enroll in real estate school. Then I will spend my life helping people find the perfect home for their families.

 

Why should students get involved in Cascadia Student Life?

Someone once told me that Cascadia College is a two-year college with a four-year college feel.

It is so true. There are always fun activities going on here. When students are involved, they better their college experience, meet new people, and just HAVE FUN! You are only in college for a few short years, so why not make it the best it can be? Also, you get free stuff and what college student doesn't like free stuff?

CAB  Entertainment Coordinator

 Name: Zarefah Baroud

 

 Title/Position:Entertainment Coordinator 

 

 What are you studying?

  I am currently a senior Running Start student from Inglemoor High School in Kenmore.

 

 Why did you choose to attend Cascadia?

  I chose Cascadia College because it offers the Running Start program as well as it being  very  close by.

 

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

  I am very much engaged in politics and human rights. I love to hang out with my close  group of  friends. I also deeply enjoy engaging conversations, cold weather, and loud  music.

 

What are your plans after Cascadia?

 I am planning on attending the University of Washington to study media and communications as I aspire to be a media producer after I've  completed my education. Being a Running Start student at Cascadia has pushed me far from my comfort zone and has benefited me  immensely in that way. It provided and continues to provide me with the experience and tools that are vital for success, not only throughout my  education, but post-university and career as well.

 

Why should students get involved in Cascadia Student Life?

 I would encourage fellow students to get involved in Student Life because it provides you with a platform as well as the means to make the kind  of change that will reshape your entire college experience. I am so glad that I got involved early on and will encourage others to do so as well.

CAB Social Issues & Family Programs Coordinator

 Name: Natalie Miller

 

 Title/Position: Social Issues & Family Programs Coordinator

 

 High School you graduated from (and city):

 Issaquah High School

 

 What are you studying?

 I am currently working on my AIS with plans to transfer to a four-year university

 

 Why did you choose to attend Cascadia?

 The location and lower tuition were more convenient for me than other community  colleges in the area.

 

What are your hobbies/interests (Outside of school)

Outside of the classroom I still live with my nose in a book and when I am not doing that I am normally spending time with one or more of my “adopted” kids. I serve as a mentor to local kids whose parents are not around or involved much in their lives. I am obsessed with geek pop culture and anything related to the 90’s. Music fuels my life and writing fiction keeps me sane. When not working for Student Life I work as a CNA in an adult family home that specializes in dementia.

 

What are your plans after Cascadia?

After Cascadia I plan to go to university to pursue a double major in English and Psychology. Eventually, I hope to continue on to get my PhD. I would like to use that to become an advocate for children in the foster system who have behavioral and mental disabilities. My experience here at Cascadia will give me the building blocks and skills needed to go on to bigger and brighter things.

 

Why should students get involved in Cascadia Student Life?

College is the time to figure out who you are, what you want, and how to get there. Part of the process is about having as many experiences as possible. Student Life offers up a great opportunity to try out new things and have those experiences.

For older students, getting involved with Student Life is a way to use our wisdom and life experiences to help shape and guide the generation that will be leading the world tomorrow. It is our time to give back.

CAB Global Arts & Awareness Coordinator

Ailish Photo 

 

 Name: Ailish Collins     

 

 Title/Position: Global Arts & Awareness Coordinator

 

 High School you graduated from (and city)

 Inglemoor High School in Kenmore, WA

 

 What are you studying?

  I’m currently getting my AA in integrated studies.

 

 Why did you choose to attend Cascadia?

  I initially intended to go from high school straight to a four-year university. However, I forgot to send  my SAT scores out to the colleges, and now here I am. I was a Running Start student for one  semester back in high school, so I already knew how good of a fit Cascadia was for me.

 

What are your hobbies/interests?

 I like to think that I’m a very active person. As such, I always keep a soccer ball, Frisbee, and pair of tennis shoes in the back of my car. However, they don’t actually get used all too often as I spend probably way too much time reading and watching Netflix.

 

What are your plans after Cascadia?

 After I graduate from Cascadia College I want to transfer to a four-year university (possibly in another country, who knows?). I want to get my BA in either soil sciences – I really like dirt – or zoology. Past that, I don’t really know what I want to do; I’ll find out as it happens. An environmental science class I took here at Cascadia actually introduced me to my passion for soil. Throughout the year I’ve been here I’ve learned so many new things about myself and my interests.

 

Why should students get involved in Cascadia Student Life? 

Students should get involved because Cascadia is our community, and we have more influence than we think we do. By joining Student Life, we can directly and positively affect our own and other people’s Cascadia experience.

 Name: Adewale Adeniyi Ayo, you can also call me Wale.

 

 Title/Position:  Recreation & Wellness Coordinator

 

 What High School did you graduate from (and city)?

 I graduated from Federal Government College Ilorin, Kwara State (Nigeria)

 

 What are you studying?

 I’m presently studying for my Associate’s degree in computer programming, after which I  plan on having a degree in piloting.

 

 Why did you choose to attend Cascadia?

Apart from my strong desire to study abroad, one major factor that made me settle for Cascadia College is the conducive learning environment the school has and the world-class equipped professors to help you succeed in your chosen career path.

 

 What are your Hobbies/interests?

My hobbies are listening to and playing musical instruments (the bass guitar), listening to spacecraft-related news, driving cars (hoping soon to drive planes), reading motivational/wisdom-oriented books, and learning new things.

 

What are your plans after Cascadia?

My goal at Cascadia is getting my Associate’s degree, after which I would further for my commercial piloting license at Phoenix-East Aviation Academy in Tampa Bay, Florida. However, during my breaks I would like to take leadership courses to improve on my leadership life for the future I am birthing. Cascadia Student Life has pushed me constantly to learn to grow and achieve my dreams, every mistake I make is a stepping stone to getting things done a better way.

 

Why should students get involved in Cascadia Student Life?

Students should get involved in Student Life because it builds you for the future. The relevance of Student Life is the power of having a voice to be heard and most importantly being the voice of your peers, which means taking responsibility for others.

CAB Special Events & Traditions Coordinator

 

 Maddy Photo

 Name: Madeline Groth, but you can call me Maddy

 

 Title/Position: Special Events & Traditions Coordinator

 

 High School you graduated from (and city)

  Inglemoor High School in Kenmore

 

 What are you studying?

 I am getting my Associates in order to transfer to another school, but I have interest in  computer science and animation and hope to use both in my future career.

 

 Why did you choose to go to Cascadia?

 I chose Cascadia because it was close to home and I knew that friends from high  school went here as well!

 

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

Watching movies is one of my favorite things to do and are a big part of what I want to do for a career. But I also like to spend time outdoors hiking and camping with friends and family.

 

What are your plans after Cascadia?

I am hoping to transfer to a school in California once I get my AA. I want to continue studying computers, art, and the ways that they can be combined once I graduate. Cascadia has helped me a lot, from figuring out what I want to do for a career to teaching me countless things about team work and leadership that will be useful in every part of my life once I leave this school.

 

Why should students get involved in Cascadia Student Life?

I hope people will get involved in Student Life, because it will teach you great leadership and teamwork skills that you will be able to use for the rest of your life regardless of what field or career you are going into. And you get to earn these great skills in a fun and friendly environment!
