Senior working today, dreaming of tomorrow
Dreaming of one day entering the medical field and being able to travel to her family’s homeland of the Philippines and help those in need, Senior Ginelle Cayme puts family and school as top priorities.
“My family has made a lot of sacrifices for me, and I want to give back by helping others the best way I know how… I want to make a difference,” Cayme said.
Family is what Cayme claims defines who she is and provides a source of motivation for her. Most of her family resides in the island nation of the Philippines in the Pacific, which leaves her unable to see them on a regular basis.
“I don’t get to see them often, but we’re close, very close,” Cayme said.
Cayme is also involved with many Bel Air organizations. She is dedicated to several clubs and has made involvement in school a top priority.
“I am restless, constantly needing to do something, I have always had something to do,” she said in an interview.
As a child Cayme became involved in tennis and piano. Some of the things she’s involved in now are HOSA, High-Q, National Honor Society (Secretary), Speech and Debate, Choir , Varsity Tennis, PT (Physical Therapy), and many more, she has even been a class officer. This doesn’t go unnoticed by Cayme’s peers and school officials, who point out her achievements.
“In PT she is a very hard working person,” said Junior Kimberly Sanchez.
Assistant Principal Cyndi Ponce also stated, “Ginelle is one of the few students to receive qualifying scores on her AP exams.”
