Alondra (Gomez) Yanez is many things including a caring, giving, and helpful person. These character traits influenced her decision for her future education and career goals.

“[Alondra] is kind and has a sweet-hearted little brain,” sophomore Bailey Workman said. Workman said Alondra finds a way to make un-fun things more fun.

Senior Hannah Zimbal said Alondra is her best friend. Alondra and Zimbal were “bench buddies” during their sophomore year basketball season. 

“We suited up for varsity but, we never really got put into the game,” said Zimbal. 

This experience, while discouraging, wasn’t unpleasant due to having the company of each other. 

“She helped lessen the discouragement of not being able to play as much,” said Zimbal. 

Alondra said her greatest fear is to fail at life. 

“I’ve taken very important tests and failed which encouraged me to do better,” Alondra said. 

She is self-disciplined and has high expectations for herself. For her to not graduate college would be to fail, so it is not an option for Alondra. She is planning on going to Fort Hays State University in Hays, Kansas. 

She looks up to her parents, and strives to make her parents proud by becoming a successful neonatal nurse. Alondra said she is works well with children and loves helping everyone. Babies are where her heart is set and her love for children inspired her goals in life and her ideal job.  

Alondra realized her love and passion for children because of her cousin’s son. 

“He was the first baby I really fell in love with. He is why I want to help children by becoming a neonatal nurse,” Alondra said. 

She said she can sometimes get into her own head and has always challenged herself not to psych herself out. 

“My biggest challenge in life is getting past my self doubt,” Alondra said.
