I am Jakob, I’ve spent my entire life in Southern California, I have blonde curly hair that a lot of people seem to like, I wear round Harry Potter Glasses, I’m about 5’10”, I like to think I’m in somewhat good shape but I could definitely stand to lose some weight. My wardrobe consists of nothing but shorts and band shirts.
I’ve never moved in my life, so I attended the same school from fourth grade through high school. In high school I played football, basketball, and baseball and was all league in all three. I was even all CIF in baseball and led the county in steals except for one kid who played 20 more games than me and beat me by one. I’ve also played the trombone for 8 years. I had the chance to join drama for a semester and that was a lot of fun. I wish I could do more performances (my dad says I’m a natural, but he’s biased), but I like doing fun performances rather than serious Shakespeare stuff. However, academics were always my main focus. I wanted to be Valedictorian ever since fourth grade, and I was able to attain that goal nine years later. Between my academics and extra curricular activities, I earned a Presidential Scholarship at California State University, Long Beach. I’m really proud of myself for getting the scholarship, but I didn’t really want it for myself. In reality, I wanted it for my parents: they did everything they could to make sure I had the best education possible and always supported me in any way they could. The scholarship was the only way I felt I could repay them.
So now I’m a sophomore in college. I’m studing Mechanical Engineering and hope to one day become an Imagineer for Disneyland. My dream is to have a noticeable, visible effect on the park that I can point out any time I visit. On that note, I’m an absolute Disney fanatic. I love watching the classic movies and visiting Disneyland as often as possible.
I don’t really know how else to describe myself. I can be shy around new people but I’m loud and obnoxious with my friends. I love to make people laugh, it’s my way of seeing whether or not they like me. That’s about all I can think of. If there’s anything I didn’t cover and you’re dying to know about, feel free to ask.
