Hi! My name is Tatum Traudt, and I am currently a Senior at Roosevelt High School. This year I am enrolled in several AP courses and honors classes. I enjoy reading, baking, and walking my dog outside of class.
At school I am a part of the Cross Country team, National honors society, and the biotechnology club. I volunteer with Magnuson Series, a local organization that hosts monthly themed races, and I also am a Spanish tutor for high schoolers. In the summers I work as a camp counselor for the Pacific Science Center, and this summer will be my fourth year there.
I am very excited to team up with others at my school and be able to make real and impactful change on a global scale. It is amazing how much power we have as young people to do so much good for others, and I intend to take full advantage of this opportunity.
