School: Atholton High School

Special achievement: Is the student associate on the Howard County school board, representing all students at board meetings.

What she says about it: "It's a good experience. I've met so many influential people. I've been able to do so many things I wouldn't have been able to without this position. It's been a lot of fun -- even though some of the meetings have been really long. We had one that went to 11: 15 p.m."

What her future holds: "I know I eventually want to become a college professor, but I'm not sure what I want to do before that. Possibly open up a small business."
