Jillian epitomizes achievement and growth in academics, athletics, community service, and the arts. This fall, Jillian became a Eucharistic Minister, and was invited to participate in the National Hispanic Recognition Program. She recently attended the Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership Conference in her home state of New York. Jillian has explored engineering and science careers at Stevens Institute of Technology, and was one of only 40 students chosen from a field of 500 applicants to attend Manhattan College’s engineering camp for women and minorities. This AHA senior continues to challenge herself by taking multiple Advanced Placement courses. Her top-level work has gained her entrée to the National Honor Society, Mu Alpha Theta (math honor society), Tri-M Music Honor Society, National Spanish Honor Society, and National Science Honor Society. She regularly attains Principal’s List and Honor Roll status. Jillian is captain of the AHA Varsity Volleyball Team and has played for the DIGS and Arsenal Elite volleyball clubs.

In addition, Jillian is an Angel Ambassador, a peer tutor, a STREAM Fair judge, and the head of the AHA Orchestra’s third flute section. A versatile dancer, Jillian has performed at multiple public events. Within her church community, she is an altar server, and volunteers with her parish’s homeless shelter and Vacation Bible School.


“AHA has exceeded my expectations by becoming my second home, a place where I can be myself, and allowing me access to many opportunities. AHA has been a safe environment for exploration. I have discovered who I am and my interests, which has been a great help in my college application process. I believe AHA is the best place to prepare young women for college and the realities of the world.”
