Isabelle is a multi-dimensional student athlete in Montana who maintains a 4.0 GPA, plays Varsity and club soccer, and trains in voice and theatre. She is Valedictorian of Capital High School's Class of 2019, graduating with 14 AP/accelerated courses. Isabelle loved the dual-credit computer science class she took through Carroll College which focused on developing programming fundamentals and using Java to create console applications and applets. She has also studied video broadcast, which focused on film production using various computer programs. In addition to these coding and production classes, Isabelle is including four years of math, history, English, French, and science courses in her high school curriculum and strongly supports STEAM education, believing the "A" is critically important. Outside of school, Isabelle has provided lead narration and animation assistance for a documentary series on the great work of Montana's public schools. She taught herself how to use animation software and then wrote and created a short film. Isabelle also founded and runs Soccer Soles, a program for providing soccer gear to needy kids in her community, and uses social media and technology to obtain donations and advertise the program. She has collected over 325 pair of cleats and, combined with her other volunteer projects, has donated over 500 hours of community service. Isabelle spent six seasons coaching a middle school recreational soccer team and is beginning her third season coaching a team of preschoolers. She has also volunteered as a science teacher at the local children's museum. Isabelle plans to attend college to earn a bachelor’s degree in an interdisciplinary study program, followed by law school, with the ultimate goal of using technology to find new ways for countries to communicate and interact with each other through the lens of our commonalities in order to improve the lives of children.
