North Tahoe High School Associated Student Body

Im 17; a senior.

Since I was a sophomore.

Ive been working at Tahoe Forest Hospital in the little kids section, for the doctors who work there, for daycare. After school I drive up there, usually two days a week. And then I work sometimes at the San Francisco free clinic. Anything they need.

I think its a good use of my time. I enjoy being able to do something productive, and to be able to say Ive done something not just for myself. I think there are things, especially in a small community, that wouldnt get done if people werent willing to volunteer. Things that are vital to society.

Im gonna go to college; I dont know where yet. I got into (UC) Davis already, but I applied to seven other schools. I would absolutely love to go to Dartmouth and study neuroscience. I want to be a doctor. I want to go into diagnostics everything that no one else can figure out, I want to figure out.

I play volleyball. I ski. And I play the French horn in the school band.

AP English Literature a 40-minute essay, AP multiple choice section test and any of 135 vocabulary words weve had this year.

I write everything I have to do down in, like, 85 places. And I go by due date. Whatever has to be finished first gets done first.The Suns Joanna Hartman interviewed Hudson for this weeks Volunteer Corner.
