Anita is a rare type of student who combines exceptional natural ability with a willingness and eagerness to learn. Anita is able to help her peers with difficult mathematical concepts, but does so in a way that is both practical and non-condescending. Although she is aware of her natural ability in the area of mathematics, Anita is constantly challenging herself. She is part of the school's Mathletics Team, which challenges local college/university students in mathematical competitions. She is also active in the community of the school by being a member of Greenpeace, and a cheerleader, while also playing defense on our school's soccer team.
