Carina Carlos is a junior at Livingston High School. She has received high honor roll throughout her entire academic career and is currently a member of multiple academic honor societies. Her academic interests are primarily STEM-oriented, as demonstrated by her commitment to multiple AP science and math courses as well as her scientific research with college professors. Despite her seeming “left-brained,” Carina can use the arts to express herself and balance her thinking. She received an honorable mention for her artwork in the 2015 Regional Scholastic Art and Writing Contest. Furthermore, she recently received a gold medal from the New Jersey Council of Teachers of English for her personal essay.
In her free time, Carina volunteers for the local hospital, eye clinic, and church choir. She is also a co-captain of her school’s varsity fencing team, receiving an Honorable Mention for the Tri-County Fencing League All-Conference Award. Additionally, Carina participates in the Forensics Speech and Debate team where she practices her public speaking and acting skills. Between these activities, she practices her singing and teaches herself guitar and ukulele. In the future, Carina hopes to continue pursuing her passion in both STEM and the humanities.
