Profile

“Mature,” “responsible” and “an excellent student” are just a few words used to describe Abraham Lincoln High School senior Jessica Bastian. She has been named to the honor throughout her high school career and is currently ranked 15th in her class. She was a recipient of the Hispanic Annual Salute Scholarship. At school, she is a member of several school organizations including the softball team, Link Crew and the YESS Institute.

Words to live by

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dream,” Eleanor Roosevelt.

Community involvement

Through the YESS Institute, Bastian mentors underclassmen students. She also provides assistance to parents taking classes to improve their computer and English skills. Bastian also spent her time being a role model for incoming freshmen as a Link Leader where part of her duties were to introduce these students to the high school environment.

Why is community involvement important?

“It is the best way to give back to the community. The more people involved in the community the bigger the change that we can make.”

If I could improve the world, I would?

“I would try to make everyone understand that we are all equal, we are all human and we should treat each other with respect. I’d give everyone the opportunity to an education, to be successful in life.”
