My name is Jake Bialek, and I’m from Austin, Texas. I am a senior attending Westwood high school and will attend the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill next year. I plan to major in Business and continue my passion for golf by joining the club golf team. During high school, I participated in various business clubs such as DECA, FBLA, and Finance Club. I was also the Director of Fundraising for two nonprofit organizations (Teens Who Care and A Cleaner Austin). I have been playing golf for as long as I can remember, but I started taking the game seriously around the age of 14. When I first started playing golf during my freshman year, I was nothing better than awful. However, as my passion and love for golf blossomed, so did my game as I went from the worst player on the team freshman year to the fourth best today. Overall, my passion for the game has only grown throughout high school, and I will use golf for the rest of my life to build relationships and connections in the business world.
