Freshman–Newbury Park High School
Gus has always spoken out on whatever it is he is passionate about. This desire to speak out and have great presence in everything he does has translated to a passion for both public speaking and helping others. He participates in performing arts and political activism clubs at school to help fulfill these passions. Some of his favorite clubs include the YMCA’s Youth and Government, Amnesty International, Hands on Earth, and Girl Up. He’s excited to move forward as an activist and speaker in these programs for the rest of high school. He’d like to thank his parents for their support and help with his speaking skills. He’d also like to thank his sister for inspiring him to make a difference in this world.
