My name is Cali Cooper and I am a graduating senior at Texas City High School in Texas City, TX as well as a Collegiate High School Student at College of the Mainland where I will soon earn my Associate of Arts Degree. I also work part-time as a Sales Associate at Rue21. I was born and raised in Texas and will be attending the University of Texas at Austin in the Fall of 2017 where I plan to major in Business Accounting or Finance. As a member of National Honor Society, Spanish Honor Society, Mu Alpha Theta, Phi Theta Kappa, and many other organizations, I have encountered many valuable experiences through volunteering and community service. Just this summer I represented my school’s chapter of Spanish Honor Society on a trip to Costa Rica where we exchanged cultures with a group of elementary aged students and planted trees to save Costa Rica’s rain forests. I have made a large effort to become an honor student in school and will continue to achieve excellence in college and in my career.
