Jaden Amilibia has accomplished a lot during her time at Marcus High School.
A member of the National Honor Society, Spanish Honor Society, Math Honor Society, English National Honor Society and Science National Honor Society, Amilibia has to be organized to stay on top of things.
“I don’t really know how I do it,” Amilibia laughed. “I don’t sleep. Actually, I have a folder with all of my clubs’ agendas and jobs to do, and I basically just prioritize what needs to get done and what’s more important than the other.”
Amilibia, 17, said that she likes being involved at Marcus for a couple of reasons.
“The obvious reason is for college applications,” Amilibia said. “But I also like being part of the wider student body and being involved in the community. I would really like to see the incoming students to these clubs uphold the morale we try to bring to the high school.”
Amilibia is also a member of the Robotics team and the Academic Decathlon team at Marcus High School, and said the school itself has held an intrigue for her since she was an elementary student.
“It’s always been the biggest school,” Amilibia said. “It is the final goal before I started college and I wanted to be a part of it.”
Amilibia, who lives in Flower Mound, is hoping to attend Duke University in the fall and major in biology or biophysics, eventually becoming a radiologist.
The Marcus senior said she treasures her time at MHS and that she believes it has definitely helped prepare her for college.
“It’s been a tough journey,” Amilibia said. “But all of the AP classes that Marcus provides have definitely been a big introduction to what college will be like. It has definitely helped me.”
Amilibia’s grade point average is a 4.76 on a weighted scale and she is ranked 55 out of a class of 754 students.
