Senior Spotlight: Ashly Trabilcy

by Amita Chauhan, Co-Editor-in-Chief

1. When and where were you born? Describe the kind of child you were.

I was born on July 16th, 1996 in Glendale, CA. I was definitely one of those typical girly girls who loved frilly dresses and Barbies and I am surely not ashamed (haha). I was a pretty good kid who stayed within the lines and wasn’t super adventurous.

2. Do you have any siblings?

Yes! One sister, Carly, who’s going to be a freshman next year! It’s a bummer I couldn’t experience at a least a year here with her, but I know she’ll do great.

Ashly 1

3. What was your favorite year of high school? Why?

Definitely freshman year because that was when I first let a majority of my friends who I would come to love very much. Also, because I was blessed with the opportunity to go on our Choir trip to Disney World and that was one of the best experiences I’ve had so far in life.

4. What is one of your favorite memories of high school?

Ooh…that’s a toughy. I’d have to say  meeting my little baby freshman from choir this year, because they’ve been nothing but gems. And when we go to sing “Eve.”

Ashly 2

5. What are some of your extracurriculars and accomplishments?

I am currently Captain of Comedy Sportz and I love it so much! My team is great and full of fun, amazing people. I’d say my biggest accomplishment is a little less educational and more personal. I’ve definitely learned to love who I am and have become comfortable with making a few crazier decisions than normal (which is quite different from my childhood self haha). But I’m extremely glad that I’ve been able to learn & grow throughout high school & accomplish what I never thought possible.

6. How have you changed from freshman year to senior year? Were there any defining moments of your high school career?

Wow. 4 years can really change a person in innumerable ways. I’ve definitely gotten crazier. hands down. I love just being silly and carefree, because honestly; why worry? We’ve got a lifetime ahead of us to have the worries of life get to us, so why start nowAshly 3?

My most defining moment was without a doubt when I met a girl named Arianna McMonagle. She will forever hold a special place in my heart; she taught me that no matter what people say or how life treats you, to always be yourself, and love that. She was such an amiable and fearless person, and through her I realized I could be the same way and ever since then, that’s what I strive to do.

7. What is your Senior Quote?

I actually put a bible verse from  Isaiah 40:8 that says “The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God endures forever.” My relationship with Jesus Christ is one of the most important things in my life and I hold dear to it. I really don’t know what I would do without the lovely advice from the Bible or the love of my wonderful Saviour.

8. Where are you going in the fall? What do you plan on majoring in?

I’m actually attending a Bible College in York, England, which I am very excited about! I can’t wait to delve into another culture and learn more about the theology behind the Bible. I’m going to be majoring in Theology.

9. What do you want to be when you grow up?

Well, I want to be many things honestly. I’d love to be a teacher, worship leader, mother and many more. But if I had to choose I would have to say worship leader because I love music with the entirety of my heart and it’s amazing being able to incorporate that with  other things I love in life.

10. Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

I see myself in a new place, surrounded by loving people and maybe with a family who I cherish. But who knows where the wind will take me, so long as I can look back and say I had no regrets.

1. When and where were you born? Describe the kind of child you were.

6. How have you changed from freshman year to senior year? Were there any defining moments of your high school career?

I’ve became more open with myself, I use to be a very quiet person (surprise, surprise) freshmen year. It was not until I joined the Drama Department that I became the crazy sassy person I am today.

Alive, first of all. I also hope to see myself be a household name either by my designs or my YouTube channel.

Senior Spotlight: Sara Canzano

by Amita Chauhan, Co-Editor-in-Chief

1. When and where were you born? Describe the kind of child you were.

I was born on October 14th, 1995 and have always lived in El Segundo. As a child, I was very shy around new people but would slowly open up. I was always curious to try new things and loved to just adventure around with friends to enjoy the simple things in life. I’d always have a friend over and we would run around outside and take advantage of the free time elementary school had. In school, I was that one kid that was a teacher’s pet and a goodie-two-shoes, but I just liked helping others out and help anyone who needed it. In class, I was frequently given a Character Award and elected as the student council member for my class. Through my academic career, I have remained a strong student and kept A’s up until sophomore year, but I wasn’t crushed, it’s high school.

IMG_3328

2. Do you have any siblings?

Nope, I’m an only child but my friends are like family to me and my two dogs would be the closest thing I suppose.

3. What was your favorite year of high school? Why?

Oh gosh, well each year has it’s perks, but I think either junior year or senior year takes the cake. My junior year wasn’t too stressful and my classes were manageable so it all worked out. Plus, the tennis season that year was great and we got to dye the coach’s hair blue for getting so far into CIF Playoffs. Senior year is great because the classes are more helpful for college and even though I have challenging classes, the workload isn’t too overbearing and my teachers are always willing to help out.

IMG_3326

4. What is one of your favorite memories of high school?

My favorite memory has to be Prom last year since the location was beautiful and it was just a nice evening with friends with all the activities and dancing.

IMG_3327

5. What are some of your extracurriculars and accomplishments?

Well, all through high school I was a Girls’ Tennis team member and that’s where met a lot of new friends. I would spend summer days out on the courts just having fun and working on my awful tan lines that never go away, but it’s sport where you can just play for fun with friends. I was Varsity level for three years and Captain for two. At the end of sophomore year, I started back up tennis fundraising after many years of nothing and it ran fairly successfully and hopefully it’ll be carried down for many years since sports aren’t cheap, especially Tennis. For my efforts and leadership, my coach gave me the Leadership Award and bad jokes, lots of bad jokes.

IMG_3656

6. How have you changed from freshman year to senior year? Were there any defining moments of your high school career?

Ah freshman year, how I don’t miss you so. That was a tough year for me but I learned a lot about myself and how people change which are important life lessons. Freshman year pushed me out of my comfort zone and showed me that I need to make myself happy too. As a senior, I know my limits and I’m honest with myself and others about how I feel, but how we could fix things too. I have definitely developed more problem solving methods that does not only blame one side exclusively and instead sorts pieces apart and arrive to the proper solution. But each year I’ve learned something new about myself and I can tell I’ve grown a lot, but there’s still more room to grow, I really haven’t tested my own wings on my own, but that’s what the rest of life has in store for me.

IMG_3401

7. What is your Senior Quote?

“I have learned, that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.” -Henry David Thoreau (That’s some deep stuff).

8. Where are you going in the fall? What do you plan on majoring in?

Well here’s where things get a little complicated, but bear with me. I will be studying with Northeastern University located in Boston, but my first semester will be spent at the American College of Thessaloniki in Greece. SO I will be taking Northeastern courses for my major of Chemical Engineering in Greece and get to spend some time in that area and can tour other neighboring countries.

IMG_3227

9. What do you want to be when you grow up?

When I grow up, I just want to be happy. Someone very wise and dear to me told me that, and it all makes sense. When I grow up, I want to do something that makes me happy; a reason to smile and enjoy what I do. With finding a job that I like within the big umbrella of Chemcial Engineering, I want to find a job where I like going to work, even when it gets tough. I don’t need the biggest house or the fanciest car, I just want to live a simple life that makes me happy surrounded by people who care about me and that I care about.

10. Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

Most likely, I’ll be back in sunny Southern California living in a quaint house and working a stable job with a company I met through some networking from my work experience terms through college. Maybe I’ll be married or maybe I won’t, who knows what the future holds :P

Senior Spotlight: Jamie Stewart

by Amita Chauhan, Co-Editor-in-Chief

 

1. When and where were yoJamie 2u born? Describe the kind of child you were.

Santa Monica, October 27th 1995. I was a mercurial child. One minute the cutest most cuddly baby there is. The next crying my head off. It’s what made my good moments so special.

 

 2. Do you have any siblings?

My lil sis is a freshman. Her name is Cece.

 3. What was your favorite year of high school? Why?

Freshman year. No preconceived ideas. I just moved here and the warm and welcoming community embraced me.

Senior year football was my favorite memory. It was just amazing to watch us go from a 2-3 record to an 8 game win streak into the first CIF finals birth in school history!

Senior Spotlight: Michaelynn Welther

by Amita Chauhan, Co-Editor-in-Chief

1. When and where were you born? Describe the kind of child you were.

I was born on October 10, 1996 in Venice, CA. I was a curious child; I was interested in learning new concepts and making new games in my neighborhood park to play with other kids. I was the first student in my preschool class to read and enjoyed reading books, mostly the Flat Stanley and Judy Blume books. In kindergarten I would use the arts and crafts corner so much that I was awarded Queen of Crafts on the last day of school. My family moved to El Segundo when I entered the third grade. It was definitely a big change for me (at the time), I struggled finding new friends but eventually would find my fit in this small town. What I would learn to love about El Segundo is how great the small-town feel is; especially during Homecoming week and the activities I pursued throughout high school I felt as if I could immediately bond with anyone I worked with.

 

2. Do you have any siblings?

I have an older sister, Christa, and twin brother, Michael. My sister graduated from ESHS in ’11 and is my advisor and best gal pal. Though we’re both busy and can’t hang much, we have girl talks on walks or on our general free time to get honest opinions from each other and have fun. My brother is the closest person to me, I can relate to him the most as we’ve shared most events and experiences since we were born (I do use the fact that I’m 1 minute older than him to my advantage.) If it weren’t for my brother and sister I don’t think I would have developed the sense of humor and confidence that I have. They are the most honest people I know, and it’ll be difficult to live away from them this fall. I’ll miss their crazy ideas to troll people when we go out and being able to confide in them.

 

Micky 2

 

3. What was your favorite year of high school? Why?

I loved high school overall, and the fact that every year has equally contributed to the great memories I can keep forever of it will make me miss these years (though I am also excited to move forward). El Segundo High School is a school of activism and unification, and I never truly felt excluded or negativity from any year. If I do have to choose one though…I would have to say Senior Year. This year I got to use all my experiences from the past three years and apply them to everything I do. I feel as if I’ve had the freedom to also start teaching myself subjects in my interest, those being Italian, HTML, and CSS.  I’m at the stage that allows me to move past the textbooks and actually synthesize my knowledge in the real world, and learn more from those experiences. Other perks of being a senior are the academic ease, the class spirit and bonding, and having great seasons in my extracurriculars. Oh right, and learning where I’m spending the next 4 years.

 

4. What is one of your favorite memories of high school?

I’d have to say band camp was my favorite memory. Every single band camp. I had never endured anything that involved so much focus, hard work, long hours, and PAYOFF. I learned plenty from the Colorguard members, made life-long friendships in the band, and  gained inspiration and determination from Mr. Fox’s speeches at the end of the long day. Every second was worth the season, my present, and my future. I would not be the person I am today without band camp.

 

5. What are some of your extracurriculars and accomplishments?

I was involved a few years with Junior Statesmen of America and Film Production Club, however I put most of my focus on being in the Robotics Team and Colorguard/Band. In Robotics, I participated mostly in the FIRST Robotics Competition, the Olympics of Robotics essentially. I was Secretary my junior and senior years, and earned the “Most Dependable Member Award” in 2013. I more recently created a social media hub on Facebook for other South Bay FRC teams to collaborate and interact, and have used my skills and connections in the club to develop technical skills. In the Colorguard, I went from being a rookie to Mama Bear (or I guess Captain) my senior year. As the team changed year to year, I changed with it. If it weren’t for Colorguard I would not have been as open and confident with myself in high school as I am now. During Concert Season, I play trombone. Though I am surely not the best player, I have learned a lot about music theory and how music has changed in the past few centuries.

 

6. How have you changed from freshman year to senior year? Were there any defining moments of your high school career?

Since my freshman year I have grown more open to change, trustworthy of others, have become more extroverted, and have realized that academic excellence does not in fact indicate intelligence. I feel as if my freshman self was immature (of course), and I wasn’t really understanding of others. Today I do not believe our school has a bad clique problem, and I have a broader idea of intelligence. People are intelligent in different ways, whether it’s art, algorithms, athletic strategy, alliteration, etc. My most defining moment was probably when I got my first B in 10th grade and came to that realization.

 

7. What is your senior quote?Micky 3

“I reject the idea that there are two sides…[People] are not living their lives via platforms. They’re living their lives.” – Jon Stewart

I chose this quote because it represents my will to look past stereotypes and generalizations, and my interest in politics. I hear students bash Democrats and Republicans just because of their generalizations, and I believe that we all must think about what we want before sticking to the stereotype.

 

8. Where are you going in the fall? What do you plan on majoring in?

I am attending Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo this fall. I will be studying Applied Mathematics, however I am open to change if I discover I favor a different subject. I like the variety of pathways I can take as an Applied Math major; I can be an engineer, programmer, research analyst, etc. I like my pathways like I like my Chex Mix, in a variety.

 

9. What do you want to be when you grow up?

Right now I see myself going down the engineering pathway since I enjoy seeking and fixing problems. I’m innovative. When we were still supposed to have masks with sticks at prom I was going to attach two sticks on my mask with hinges so I could put the sticks up to make glasses. #PramaInnovations

 

10. Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

I don’t know. Where is this mystical place that I can see myself in 10 years from? I’m just kind of going with that flow right now.

This elections season I would like you all to know that I want to be  your voice. I am here to help anyone who needs it and I will always try to the best of my abilities to have your needs met.

Secretary

Amber Carrington

Hi I’m Amber Carrington and I’m running for ASB Secretary. I love to make fun of myself and mess around but I also know how to be serious and get the job done. I want this upcoming school year to be all about you. I know that I have what it takes to make this school a better place for you. I’ve held both governor and lieutenant governor positions over the past few years, and have learned the different responsibilities for both of them. From these positions, I have learned how to be responsible and organized–traits any good secretary must have. Although I am a younger candidate I believe that I can use this to my advantage because I will know how to cater to the needs of both upperclassmen and underclassmen. I’ll get the job done and will think about what is good for every grade and the school as a whole. I want next year to be what you want it to be. We all have a voice and you all will be heard. So vote for me and let’s have some fun and make it a great year for everyone!

I love making new friends and would really love for those of you who don’t know me as well to come say hello!) Some activities that I have been a part of are Choir, Swim Team, WaterPolo, and link crew. I love being in the the water as much as I can and enjoy all the sweet, little moments I have with my closest family and friends. You may be wondering why I’m the best fit for Secretary? Well, let me start off with my passion for ESHS. From 1-10, my love for our school is off that scale! I also consider myself a loving and giving person who places other’s needs before mine at all times. If you allow me to be your Secretary, I promise to give back to you and our school and be your hands and ears; listening to what you want and making it the best of my abilities to apply all your lovely suggestions.

Sydney Wilbanks

Hi! My name is Sydney Wilbanks I am running to be ASB Secretary for the school year of 2015. I am a three sport athlete, link crew leader, and volunteer at the Little Company of Mary Hospital in San Pedro. I love serving and giving back to my school/community! Because of my busy schedule, my organizational skills have to be excellent and my time management is impeccable. If I am elected as ASB Secretary I would like to try to increase school spirit at this school and implement a larger variety of food choices in the cafeteria. I think that I am best fit for the job of ASB Secretary and that I have a lot to offer this school.

Governor

Hayley Funk

Hello Bay Eagle Followers – I’m Hayley Funk and I’m running for Senior Class Governor. Our class of 2015 is my passion. I have a ton of crazy ideas and I’m super excited to have the opportunity to lead our class next year. There are so many things that go on in our Senior year. I would love nothing more than to have the honor to make fun and lasting memories with all of you. First of all, we are number 1 and our Homecoming float needs to take first place. This past year I took a hands-on role in planning our float and next year I know exactly what we need to do to claim our title.

We’ve all put in so much effort to finally make it to our Senior year together and I have the experience in ASB to make our final year awesome. Beyond our high school career in El Segundo we get to come together every few years as a class and I guarantee, with me as your Senior Class Governor our reunions are going to be freaking amazing. Gotta have that Funk with spunk!

Thank you so much and don’t forget to vote Friday in the Auditorium.

Hayley

 

Niki Reitano

Hi everyone! My name is Niki Reitano and I am running for Senior Class Governor! I would like to encourage my peers to speak up and share their ideas with our representatives so we can better serve them and make next year enjoyable for everyone. I would like to make next year a memorable one! I believe each person should have a voice in the activities planned at our school and one way this can improve is adding online voting polls for students to vote for spirit week themes, dance themes and activities in the quad at lunch..etc. My favorite part about elections is that I have been able to meet more of you all! I hope that I can work with you guys and make a difference in our school by making each voice heard. It starts with you! :)

Lieutenant Governor

Sarah Chang

The reason why I want to be  senior class lieutenant governor for the 2014-2015 school year is because I’ve always wanted to be a part in ASB, but I’ve never gotten the chance to do so because I was nervous and unconfident. This year I’ve decided to take a huge step out of my comfort zone, to not just be a representative for ASB, but an elected office position. It’ll truly mean a lot to me if I am able to win this election, but I know that even if I don’t, my fellow candidates are all capable of running the job flawlessly. If I’m elected for this position, my main goal is this: opportunity. I want to be able to give every person in our class, the opportunity to be involved and showcase talents that they can contribute to our class of 15. This is our last year together, so I want everyone to be able to contribute with no regrets, and to leave this school being content and satisfied, and have a senior year that we will remember forever.

Julia Freeman

My name is Julia Freeman, and I have spent my first 3 years at ESHS in ASB, supporting my fellow classmates in their endeavors,  and playing soccer and lacrosse. I’m so proud of all of our school accomplishments, and I love all of our sport teams, clubs, band, color guard, etc.!  I’m a proud Eagle!! My four key initiatives for next year are: (a) better food options (such as chicken tacos every other week)
(b) more guest speaker assemblies (think Mike Smith)
(c) additional charity tournaments involving new charities and other sports (similar to Hoops for Huntington), and
(d) more class participation events i.e. Pep rallies, spirit weeks.
I look forward to hearing additional ideas and I will always be accessible! I want to be your next Senior Lt. Gov. because I believe I can bring a new perspective to ESHS to make our Senior year even more exciting and enjoyable!!

Nate Vinzon

My name is Nate Vinzon and I am running for Lt. Governor of the 2015 Class.  As an upcoming senior I want to be able to enjoy every last second of my final year at high school with all of my friends and my peers.  While every candidate brings forth their own contribution to the school, I believe that I can bring out the best in every student and help to create a collective school spirit stronger than ever before at ESHS.  With my extensive connections between almost every sport, arts program or/and extra curricular I believe that I can help tighten the bonds between each student in our class regardless of friend circles or cliques.

Secretary/Treasurer

Lawrence Horowitz

I’m Lawrence Horowitz and I’m hoping to win my first election. I’ve wanted to help the school since 8th grade but have never gotten the chance. Hopefully this time I can prove that a vote for me is the write choice. I hope to really watch out more for graduation purposes and to save for some sweet things for our reunions. Their is not much to do for this position but no matter how much work it is it’s the work ethic that matters and I am for sure that man with the plan.

Steven Moody

First off, I’m super excited to be apart of this campaign and good luck to all the candidates! My name is Steven Moody and I’m running for senior class treasurer/secretary. Although I have never been in ASB before, I know my organization skills and natural leadership abilities will allow me to perform at this position to the highest degree. I know what people want and I know how to give it to them. Being in band the past three years has shown me how a group of individuals can come together and make something truly incredible and awe-inspiring, and I’m very excited to bring that mentality into the student government. Myself and many others have countless ideas on how to make this school even greater and I hope I get to make these ideas a reality. I can honestly say that all the candidates are wonderful people who I can call friends and who will get the job done. So regardless of who wins the elections, I know next year will be something to remember.
