About Julian Castro

From the day I was born I had a partner, a teammate, a brother. As I’ve grown, I’ve developed a passion for working with others through my experiences on athletic teams, educational teams, and the addition of a new brother. The Feather is an opportunity to join a team and work together with others who are striving toward the same goal. “The achievements of an organization are the results of the combined effort of each individual.” - Vince Lombardi I am a part of a family of five: two brothers and my parents. I am the middle child so cooperating with the older and younger are a struggle sometimes. My father is the Vice President of a construction company and my mother is a stay-at-home mom. In my education I have enjoyed and excelled in most subjects. Math and English have always been my favorite classes while science has been a class that has never really caught my interest. My favorite music artist is Elvis Presley and has been since I discovered his music during my childhood, The office is my favorite television show, and Dodgeball takes the top spot on my movie list. A great teacher is made by being a great student. Someone who is able to teach and learn at the same time is someone who will excel in their teaching careers. Some day I would be one focused around business and begin with an internship doing that. I would go to my uncle and become his apprentice because managing a computer software company is something that I would like to do. Many hours of my free time go to the sports that I do year round. I play football, soccer, and tennis. Soccer and tennis are new found passions of mine, but I have been playing football since the fourth grade. I joined publications to further my skills in writing and to prepare myself for college. Another reason for joining is the team is to learn perseverance through struggles with other people working toward the same goal. I want to help The Feather grow in a way that is unique to me and add my own spin to it.

As a student who has been a lifer at Fresno Christian, one who has been at the school from kindergarten to 12th grade, I have fallen in love with the school and the culture here. Although small and sheltered, I feel that FC has been a great environment to grow in most aspects and especially faith. I have been readied and well equipped by my time and experiences here and await the next chapter of my life.
