ACT STUDENT OF THE MONTH
A Diamond in the Rough
ACT junior, Ishah Azeez is an Acting major. Ishah has shown incredible dedication and determination in her courses at ACT. This year Ishah was recognized at the Honor’s Breakfast for achieving Honor Roll for all the first three quarters of school. She has been a diligent student since she came to ACT as a freshman. Throughout her time at ACT she has become more confident, self-assured and less stressed by the pressures of academic work. Ishah is an academic role model for other ACT students. She is always willing to work to her fullest potential. Furthermore, Ishah displays respect for herself, the work and the community.
Bethany Gallant, ACT History Teacher states, “I have Ishah as a student in Psychology class. She stands out among her peers as an incredibly motivated and enthusiastic student. Ishah is always engaged and participates in class activities and discussions. She is always willing to help and work cooperatively with others.”
Ishah is actively engaged in the ACT community and takes pride in being a member of our school. She is a role model to younger students by modeling civil engagement, respect for others and acting responsibly.
In addition to being an Acting major, Ishah is also a member of ACT’s Acapella group. Kasia Popovic, ACT Music Teacher, identified and recommended Ishah participate in Acapella. She noticed Ishah’s powerful voice in Beginning Singing. Ishah practices after school with Acapella since time in her schedule during the school day did not allow for her to enroll in the class. At this year’s Six Flag competition, ACT’s Acapella group earned the 1st place trophy.
Ishah is a student who has an ambition for new learning in different art forms. She very much enjoys Stop Animation and has taken the class the last two years.
