Stephanie Jimenez Tellez knows the value of community. A self-motivated student and athlete, Stephanie has helped build a successful basketball team, builds learning communities to better understand difficult material, and builds bridges between teachers and parents by serving as a Spanish/English translator. She places the success of the group first—her basketball coach describes her as someone who is always willing to make sacrifices for the team and who plays every game like it’s her last. Despite having no prior experience with basketball, Stephanie’s drive on the court earned her the title of MVP her sophomore year. She is just as committed to her education and career, and she looks forward to studying dermatology after she graduates from Pescadero High School in 2021.
