I hope to attend the University of Harvard majoring in Public Policy and International Affairs, as well as gain a graduate degree from Harvard. I would like to live in New York City or Washington, D.C, and make a difference through politics. In the long run my ultimate goal is to be President of the United States so that I can help improve our country and the lives of our citizens.

We are always on the lookout for exemplary students and would love feedback from parents, teachers and other students who would like to nominate someone special. Please email Steven Brunsman, SBISD Director of Communications with your ideas.
