Growing up, Juliette has always been a passionate learner and driven athlete. In school she pushes herself, taking the hardest classes she can and excelling in them, which earned her a 5.0 GPA in the semester before COVID-19. By the time she graduates, she will have taken 12 AP classes and several Honors. She is a tri-season athlete, taking part in Santa Clara High’s cross country, wrestling, and track teams. Her athletic inclination follows her outside of school and, combined with her love of nature, skiing, hiking, and biking became natural pastimes. Outside of being an active learner and dedicated athlete, Juliette is also an artist. As a passionate photographer, she loves to capture the beauty around her with her camera to showcase it later on. She also enjoys working with her hands; drawing, painting, sculpting, carving, knitting, and building. Through the 49ers STEM Leadership Institute, she found a creative outlet in the numerous design challenges that allowed her to use her imagination to make meaningful contraptions.
