Valda Borbridge - Owner
Education: High School Diploma
Val graduated from Manokotak High School after attending Mt. Edgecumbe High School.
Valda is currently attending the University of Alaska, Fairbanks and is completing her prerequisites for her undergraduate credentials. Her plans include graduate school and a career in Alaska.
Val is keenly aware of the lack of infrastructure and development in Rural Alaska and will be working and contributing as time away from college permits.
Early in my high school years I discovered a personal truth, which I have no limitations other than those I choose to impose upon myself. Everyone brings to the world unique talents, gifts, and abilities, and some of mine include my strong will and my determination to be able to give something back to the community in which I was raised. My plans are to not only use education as a tool to prepare me for a vocation, but also to help me become a self-sufficient individual who is fully prepared for life.
School has always been challenging, but finally getting though my freshmen year at the University of Alaska Fairbanks has allowed me to consider my future goals more seriously. I love learning health concepts and I have always worked hard to learn difficult things almost to the point of perfection. It’s been my lifelong dream to achieve the goal to become an orthopedic doctor in the field of pediatric health career.
I was currently involved in various community activities and am proud of my involvements. I have attended many science, technology, and wildlife camps, as well as various exchanges, since my middle school years and continuing to the present. I attended Mt. Edgecumbe High School in 2006-2007, where I was away from home for nine months. During that year I held two major jobs… I also took part in school activities. Playing Varsity basketball, Varsity volleyball, cross- country, Battle of the Books, Student Council-Senior Secretary/Treasurer, Prom committee, and Yearbook staff. In addition I have a lot of experience in working with computer technology, which I believe will be important for developing my future sills.
For these reasons, I believe that my personal statement will benefit both your foundation and myself. The professional atmosphere at attending college will be a fantastic challenge as I proceed into my sophomore year. I also hope that my participation will help our needs. Thank you very much for your time and consideration.
