I am a junior at Hoover High School. I am 16 years old and play the bass guitar. Somebody that motivates me to do well in my education is my mom. She has done so much for me and all I want to do is make her proud. I am thankful for all the friends I have. Something I really like here at Hoover is all the teachers and staff. The support I receive from the teachers is one of the reasons I love this school. During this holiday break, I spent time with all of my family and visited other family up in Los Angeles. Money is my main motivation in life, but to get there I need to try to get the best education I can, this is why I attend school and why I always try to maintain good grades. I recommend students to attend Hoover in the future because of the amazing opportunities like College Avenue Compact, a program which gives you guaranteed access to San Diego State University. The only requirement is for students to get a minimal of a 3.0 GPA during their four years of high school.
