I am 17 years old, going into my senior year of high school at University Preparatory School in Redding, California. During the school year I spend almost all of my time studying for various AP classes, doing club activities, especially in Outdoors Club, volunteering at the local hospital, and track & field. I constantly strive for self improvement and have an insatiable desire to succeed. My goals are to become a genetic engineer and always work to be a better me. I am very excited for my first year in District Council working as a District Delegate for areas 1, 2, and 3!

Hello everyone! My name is Mariz and I will be an Area 4, 5, 6, & 7 delegate for the 2018-2019 school year. I’ve been involved in Interact since freshman year, went to Camp Royal, and now am excited to be a part of DC. I’m super into the performing arts, specifically singing, dance, and musical theatre. In regards to academics, my favorite classes I’ve ever taken in high school are AP US History and French because I love learning about language and culture. When I’m not on the go, I can be found writing music, watching anime movies, or enjoying boba at T4 or Tapioca Express. After completing my four years at Salesian College Preparatory, I hope to major in Kinesiology and become a pediatric physical therapist. Let’s make this a great interact year!
I am an incoming Senior at Will C. Wood High School. At school, I am currently involved with link crew, outdoors adventure club, service leadership, and serve as Marketer for our Interact Club. I’ve been involved with the school’s band/drumline and have played on the tennis team for two years. In my free time I like to graphic design, film, listen/play music, cruise around in my skateboard, and hang out with friends. I enjoy making connections with others and I am excited to keep doing that with Interact District Council this year! Also my favorite color is red.
Areas 8, 9 & 10
Hello! My name is Xiaojing Lei, but everyone calls me Ivy. I will be a senior at Ygnacio Valley High this year, and this will be my third year in Interact. Being in Interact has exposed me to so many opportunities and helped me become more social and active within my community and my school. Since I started participating more, I learned a lot about myself as well, like I enjoy urban exploration, going to local concerts, and taking night hikes! I am very excited to see what this year has in store.
Hello! my name is Sage Bennett and I am a Senior at Antioch High School in Antioch, California! I have been in Interact for three years now and are now currently a Co-President of my high school’s Interact club! Interact has given me the opportunity to have more of an impacting presence in my community and has shown me that once I set my heart on something, I can accomplish anything. Outside of Interact, I am involved with Student Government, Link Crew, and are also a Co-President of my school’s chapter of the California Scholarship Federation. Over the past three years I have taken various rigorous colleges-leveled courses at UC Berkeley regarding: Social Activism, Human Ideology, and Engineering. I also work part time as an Environmental Analysis for my Environmental Science internship Earth Team and help run a self-created Rotary sponsored organization called Support Our Youth (S.O.Y). In my free time, when I do have it , I love to write poetry, play piano, sing, and watch/ make YouTube videos! From the things I have done to the things I have yet to start, I currently hold aspirations in creating positive change in our World to help relieve the negative connotations that seemingly control our world at times. I am excited for this upcoming year and anyone has any questions, comments, concerns, or just wants to talk, don’t be afraid to contact me! Have a good day! <3
My name is Jocelyn Gao, and I’m a junior at California High School in San Ramon, CA. Being a part of Interact has always been an incredibly important and rewarding part of my life ever since I joined in freshman year, as it has not only shown me the value of service but also how fun giving back to the community can be. In addition to Interact, I’m interested in social and political issues, which I’ve explored as a member of Model United Nations, and I am considering going into public policy in my future career. On the less academic side, I like to watch TV, travel, and try new foods around the Bay Area; I always love restaurant recommendations. I am super excited to serve as District Delegate this year!
