Amina Meziani

Amina Meziani of Bridgton has been selected as the area Lions Clubs’ “Student of the Month” for March.

Each month, area Lions Clubs recognize a Lake Region High School senior who has excelled academically. The recipient is honored at a Lions’ dinner meeting and is presented a monetary award.

Parents: Abdelkader Meziani, Candy Meziani, and Becky Tripp

Siblings: Camilla, Tatiane and Melody

Activities: Student representative on the SAD 61 School Board, AFS Club, WorldQuest, volleyball, dance and work.

Hobbies: Reading human rights blogs and various books, self-learning Portuguese and now snowboarding.

Future plans: I will be attending American University this fall, majoring in International Studies with a main thematic focus in Justice, Ethics and Human Rights and a secondary thematic focus in Race, Identity, Gender and Culture. I also plan on studying Spanish and Portuguese as languages.

Favorite class? My favorite class is most definitely WorldQuest. I have learned more in that class than I would have ever dreamed possible. Before taking it, I had no idea what I was capable of doing!

Toughest class? Again, WorldQuest. On top of learning facts and information, I have also learned so many other things. For example, how to highlight so the whole page isn’t yellow, how to understand scholarly essays and reports, and last but most definitely not least, how to be passionate about learning.

How do you balance your class work and activities? Honestly, it’s pretty rough. I just remember to keep my mind set on my ultimate goal. That for me is enough to keep me going through anything.

What is the biggest challenge high schools students face today? Balancing everything that goes on in and outside the classroom and still finding time to chill out.

Who has inspired you educationally? I’m not sure if I could accurately point out one teacher. I think every teacher I have had throughout school has inspired me in some way, although I definitely have to give a shout out to Mr. Nye for putting up with me the past two years and to Ms. Kantro, who is my independent study teacher for Race and Identity in the Caribbean. You guys rock, thank you so much for everything.
