Katelyn Saechao has maintained a cumulative GPA of 3.992 while pursuing the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program. The RHS accomplishment that Katelyn is most proud of is receiving the Language Arts Department Award. This is because she is proud of her improvements in the two-year course as she initially struggled with it. Katelyn’s favorite aspect about RHS is that students from so many backgrounds come together to create a wonderfully diverse environment. Katelyn finds this to be the most beautiful part of RHS. Katelyn will attend the University of Washington, College of Arts and Science, to study design on her pathway to becoming a graphic designer. Katelyn’s personal key to success is persevering no matter how difficult a task is. She finds that initially struggling and later achieving success is extremely pleasing, as it is the satisfaction of knowing that she has grown after trudging through arduous circumstances. Katelyn is appreciative of all her teachers, especially, Ms. Keopanya, Ms. Khelghatian, and Mr. Okimoto, for always having their doors open and keeping it real. Katelyn is also grateful to her family; specifically, for the sacrifices that her grandparents have made for her which have allowed her to get this far.
