Aleska plans to study Psychology in college. Inspired by Patricia Cook, a local psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner, Aleska’s career goal is to become a psychiatrist so she can make mental health care affordable and accessible in the North Country.

Aleska has been named to the Principal’s List (95+) every quarter of school and has had the honor of holding the highest GPA for her class since fourth grade. Aleska has been awarded the President’s Education Award for Academic Excellence, the Daughters of the American Revolution Award for the highest school average in US History, the Women in STEM Award and the St. Lawrence Book Award for fostering inclusivity. She has also been awarded the prestigious Augsbury Scholarship from St. Lawrence University and the Bonnie Scholarship award from St. Bonaventure.

Aleska is president of the National Honor Society, president of Student Council, president of Spanish Club and president of her New Visions Law and Government Class. Aleska is the social media director for Sources of Strength, secretary for the Senior Class and a member of NCSTEP (North Country Science Technology Entry Program). Aleska has played the flute since the fourth grade. Aleska was selected for Area All State and Area All County in band and participated in New York State Student Music Association (NYSSMA) festivals since fifth grade.

Aleska also played varsity soccer in her junior and senior years, where she was awarded NYSPHSAA Athlete of Distinction for Section X.

Outside of academics, Aleska has completed multiple hours of community service. In her limited free time, Aleska enjoys spending time with her family and pets, listening to music, collecting knick knacks and forcing her sister to watch movies with her while she talks through them.
