DO-IT Scholar Bud

My name is Bud. I'm a senior at Monroe High School in Monroe, WA. I spend a lot of my time doing homework and activities with my school. I just finished my fourth and final year in my school's chess club. I'm also doing a final year of Distributed Education Clubs of America (DECA) competitions. I have applied to several colleges this year including UW, Gonzaga, Pepperdine, George Washington, and Georgetown. I've been researching schools for a couple of years now, so I'm anxious to commit to one. I'm interested in studying business. When I was ten I lost part of my vision from a disease called Leber's Hereditary Optic Neuropathy. I have enjoyed participating in the DO-IT program because of the types of technology used. Using computers for schoolwork is very helpful for me. I had a great time living on the college campus as a DO-IT Phase I Scholar last summer. It has been a very beneficial experience for me, and I look forward to the new experiences I will have and the people I will meet this summer at the UW as a Phase II Scholar.
