Sasha Lopez

My name is Sasha, and I’m 16 years old. I love modeling, playing basketball, and pitching. Nothing will stop me from achieving my goals, because I am very strong minded and devoted. I want to be somebody whom everyone remembers and I want to leave my mark. English is my first language, and Spanish is my second. 

Sasha LopezI was born in Maryland, but my parents are from El Salvador and the Dominican Republic. I have two brothers and two sisters. I’m the middle child. My oldest sister is 23, the older brother is 18, younger brother is 15, and my youngest sister is 7 years old. I currently attend John F. Kennedy high school and participate in the following extracurricular activities; varsity basketball, softball, and dance team. Also, I am one of my class SGA officers! My favorite school subject would have to be National, State & Local Government because I aspire to be a lawyer. My dream school and goal is to attend the University of Miami and major in criminal justice. Other interests include, journalism, business, and psychology. One of my goals for this school year is to work on my pitching. I am an honor roll students. My weighted GPA is a 3.7 right now. Another goal is to bring it up to a 4.0 this school year. 

People will usually describe me as very outgoing, friendly, diverse, with perseverance for success. I have held beauty pageant titles such as; Miss Primavera, Miss Teen Maryland Latina, and most recently, Miss Teen Universe Maryland. I loved all of them! Being a queen means more to me than a crown or title because with or without these titles this has always been me. I want to be a person that people look up to, and I love being able to show people that you can stay true to yourself through anything. I love uplifting others and setting a good example. 

I enjoy being able to experience a lot of different things because I love exploring my horizons and I believe it’s imperative. Aside from that, I’ve also done kickboxing, cheerleading, and football when I was younger! At the end of the day, my life is lived to the fullest.
