My name is Alexandria Van Grouw and I am a senior at Windsor High School. I am a part of the arts program and Windsor High called Nueva School of the Performing Arts. Through this program I have gained skills related to stage work and have been able to study under some of the best directors in Sonoma County. I not only have interests in the arts, but in the sciences as well. In addition to having been a part of over 12 productions in Sonoma County, I was awarded a prestigious internship with KPrime Laboratories in Santa Rosa. They are an analytical chemistry lab with which I was able to assist in research and the publication of that research. I plan to attend University of Portland in the fall of 2014.
