Adairsville High School
Who am I?
My name is Jonathan Alonso ParralLeon, from an immigrant family from Guerrero, Mexico. Born in 2005, in a very rural town known as Adairsville, I've lived here my entire life. During elementary school, I have always found a liking to the science and math, being mesmerized from learning about space in 4th grade and tectonic plates in 5th grade. It wasn't until Biology in 7th grade that pushed me more towards wanting to study further and wanting a more in depth understanding of biology and our environment.
Joining the Magnet Program has been one of the most influential decisions I have made in the last couple of years. It has helped me dive more into my interests and I have learned so much, not just about my selected pathway, but also working as a group and analyzing data.
Going on Hikes and at Lakes with my family is always the best time to see how beautiful nature is and I love every second of it.
I am involved in extracurricular activities such as Cross Country, Beta Club, HoPe, and planning to do Track as well, all while balancing a good work schedule on the weekends.
I always want to strive to become the best person I can be and all of the classes that the magnet program has provided me with has helped me so much in that process.
Plan for the future
While it is still up for question on what exactly what I want to become in the future, a known fact is that I want to study the environment, the flora and fauna around that environment, and ways to protect the environment. Which is why I'm planning to pursue an education to become and environmental engineer, as it encompasses my love for nature and the flora and fauna in our environment, chemistry, and mathematics. Along with this I want to make an impact on protecting our environment and continue educating people about the effects that anthropogenic actions have on our Earth.
