Student Advisor- Senior

Mariska LebahnLebahn

My name is Mariska Lebahn, and I am a junior at Arlington High School. I have lived here for about 12 years, spending most of my academic life in the Arlington Public Schools system.

Since middle school, I have been involved in all advanced classes, both Math, English and Science. Since the start of my high school life, I have taken advanced English, Math, as well as AP History classes. I have been on the honor roll since middle school. I am very involved in the arts department at AHS such as the Flight Jazz Choir and the drama program. This will be my second year of being in Flight, which has been such an amazing opportunity. 

I’ve always loved being involved in leadership activities. In middle school I was a part of the school council, and throughout my high school life I have continued to be as involved as I can. From being a part of the Arlington Youth Council, to now serving as a student advisor to the Board.

After I graduate, I plan on going to medical school. I’ve always loved the human body and figuring out its wonders. I equally love crime shows and watching forensics shows. I plan to major in Forensics hoping to become a medical examiner. Since I was little, I’ve always told myself, “I’m going to be a doctor” it didn’t matter what kind of doctor, so long as it was one. As I grew older, I modified my choice and narrowed it down to a 

medical examiner. As shocking of a career as it may be, I love the idea of figuring out how a person passed and giving that sense of closure to family members.

I am so excited to be a part of this School Board and to help share the voice of my peers. This is such a wonderful opportunity to give a voice to the students of Arlington Public Schools, and I am so excited to be a part of something as big as this.
