I am Jon Christopher Rodrigues, 18 years of age, Native American and I am currently enrolled in Arroyo Valley High School. I consider myself an elated person but tend to maintain a serious attitude when I am in a need to get situations done. A couple of things that makes me happy are making people smile, and working hard. I come from a family of four older brothers and three older sisters. My mother has been together with my father Toby Rodriguez for 25 years but unfortunately, my father had passed away when I was only six years old.
It was a rough time for me, because I was only in kindergarten at the time and I still needed his guidance and motivation to focus in school. Even though my relationship with my family is great, it’s not the same without my dad and I still need that father figure in my life. My mother came along and helped shape me into a straight A student, and taught me the values to become a successful individual. I’m the type of person who looks out for people in their time of need; who thinks about others before myself, and who loves to give rather than receive.Order now
I’m a christian, so I was taught to love one another, treat everyone equally with respect and to be grateful for everything that life has given me. I’m grateful for education because it opens new opportunities for me. I have taken AP classes, college prep classes, and honors classes in high school and my overall G. P. A is a 4. 0 from freshman year to senior year. I took four years of Honors Science, Business and History because those three subjects are my all time favorite subjects in education.
I also love to debate, so I joined Mock Trial for a year but unfortunately, they didn’t offer mock trial when I started high school only my junior year. In my after school activities, I like running for the cross country team, the track team, getting a job through the school’s internship program and babysitting. I have been active in my sports, Cross Country and Track, for four years as varsity and made the captain position this year.
I feel very accomplished and honored for all the commitment and dedication I put into the team. It was an honor to be chosen for a job from the school district (SBCUSD) and giving me a job to the school districts Catering Department and it was a great experience. After high school, I want to pursue my major in Criminal Justice of Science, the perfect career for me because I love to learn about the body of how it works, and how it communicates on a daily basis.
In my physiology Science class I would always volunteer to dissect a cat because I love to see the anatomy of the body in depth like every detail of each structure to see how it each part works. This is a reminder that I need the letter of recommendation by November 8th. I would like to thank you for having the time to read my request for a letter of recommendation.
