If we had a nickel for every application we’ve received so far, we be millionaires! Or at least we’d have 25 bucks. Here’s a quick profile of lucky applicant number 500, who will receive a Breakthrough Nalgene and the distinct honor of representing the Roman numeral “D.”
Name: Kyle Robertson
School: Walnut Hills High School (Class of 2009)
Time of submission: Friday, February 22, 2008, 4:01 p.m. EST
1. How did you first hear about Breakthrough?
My sister taught at Breakthrough Cincinnati last summer and told me it was amazing.
2. What about teaching with Breakthrough is so exciting for you?
The idea of teaching at Breakthrough excites me because I love inspiring others to think critically. I also would love to do anything to close the racial and socioeconomic education gap.
3. What are some of your career interests?
My dream career would be to write. I have also considered law, diplomacy, and psychology.
4. Describe your personality in three words.
Enthusiastic, inquisitive, stubborn.
5. If you were a U.S. city, what city would you be, and why?
Cincinnati. It has Skyline Chili, duh!
And, just to keep you in the loop, between the time that Kyle submitted our 500th application and the time it took to get this blog post up, we’re now already up over 600! Keep ’em comin’!
NOTE: We’re pretty close to done here, with this whole summer application thing. The server closes on Monday, March 3 at 5PM PST. After that, you’ll be waiting until next year. Get those applications submitted now! Spread the word!
