Student Spotlight: Lea Barajas – 11th Grade


Rem Gonzales, Reporter

On a Regular Basis, What Does Your Schedule Look Like?


I usually get up at 5 AM to exercise, then drive to school by 6:50 AM. Once school is over I do my chores and clean before my parents come home. If I have work it’s from 5 to 9 on weekdays. I also participate in FFA & HYLC as an ambassador. I work an 8 hour shift Saturday and Sunday. When I am home I babysit my two younger siblings, Julian (8) and Valentina (2).


What motivates you?

My biggest motivation is my brother, whom I want to be a good example to. I’m the oldest of my siblings so I am automatically a role model for them.


What is Your Dream Job?

My dream job is to become a counselor, therapist, or adjacent profession in the psychology field.  


What do you do When you Have Freetime?

I tend to make time to hang out with my friends and family. 


How do you Budget Your Time?

It takes 14 days to make a habit. I make sure to do homework as soon as I can and take advantage of pride times.
