Ava Biegalski

I was born May 2nd, 17 years ago, in the city of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia. I can trace my family's heritage back to an ancestor who fought for the Republic in the war for independence against Britain.

I am currently a college bound senior at The Academy at Palumbo. My favorite subjects include History, Math and English. As a member of the track and field team I had the opportunity to run at the Penn Relays as 1/4th of Palumbo's 4x4 relay team. I enjoy playing badminton and participating in student government and honor society activities.

Away from school I enjoy riding horses, spending time with friends, cooking and learning new languages. I believe my friends would described me as determined, caring and fun loving. I like to think of myself as a strong, open minded, compassionate individual.

In the future I would love the opportunity to travel, particularly overseas. The world is an amazing place, filled with many different cultures, languages, foods, celebrations and I want to sample as much of it as possible.
