Nathan Lee: A Young Leader Making a Difference

Glen A. Wilson senior student, Nathan Lee is a remarkable young man who is making a difference in his local community. 

He inspires his peers and exemplifies what can be achieved with hard work, dedication, and a passion for helping others.  

It all began when he volunteered at a local religious community center.  Thanks to his parents, Lee became an active member of the community.

“My parents are very involved [in my life] and wanted me to come to take a look, so I went there a few times to help out. This included thinking of activities for the kids, passing out food, and doing chores like sweeping and cleaning,” says Lee.

He enjoys listening to music, browsing Spotify and Pinterest and playing ultimate frisbee when he is not volunteering. He wants to attend a four-year college and study areas in the STEM field. 

Furthermore, Lee is also passionate about traveling and experiencing what the world has to offer. He has a particular interest in visiting Japan, Korea, and Singapore. His experiences with different cultures have taught him the importance of understanding different perspectives. 

“I would like to attend any college. Being a first-generation student, being able to attend a 4-year college is a goal of mine,” explains Lee.

“I think the most important lesson I have learned in my school career is how to understand different perspectives. As individuals living our own lives, we all have obstacles, challenges, and things we are going through. Do not assume that you are the only one going through tough times! I learned that understanding this idea can help in school work and personal relationships and friendships.” says Lee.

In addition to his volunteer work, Lee takes numerous Advanced Placement (AP) classes like AP Calculus BC, AP Statistics, AP Biology, and AP English Literature. However, he still wanted to join Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) because it allowed him to explore his interests in the medical field and see if he wanted to pursue a career similar to medicine. Lee thinks the most challenging thing about HOSA is memorizing everyone’s names. 

“I think the most challenging thing about HOSA is memorizing everyone’s names. Being one of the largest teams on campus, knowing everyone can be quite difficult,” says Lee.

However, Lee explains that many rewarding moments come from joining HOSA.

“The most rewarding experience as a HOSA cabinet was when we saw just how big HOSA got in only three years,” says Lee.

Moreover, Lee is also on the robotics team. The most rewarding experience he had was advancing to worlds and going to Houston in his junior year. Seeing his team’s hard work finally pay off was incredibly rewarding, and seeing everyone smiling, laughing, and crying tears of joy warmed his heart.

Overall, the future ahead of Nathan Lee is brighter than ever. He inspires his peers, and his dedication to helping others is a testament to his character. Lee’s passion for learning and exploring the world is infectious, and his experiences will undoubtedly shape his future. He is a role model for anyone looking to make a difference and achieve their goals.
