Scholar Athlete of The Week: SiSi La
ROCHESTER, N.Y. — News10NBC’s Scholar Athlete of the Week is Edison Tech junior Sisi La.
She’s someone who uses soccer to help ease some stress and good things are happening as a result. “It helps with a lot of stress,” La said.
That’s soccer in a nutshell La. It’s much more than just a sport.
“I practice, like, here, like I’m able to like, you know, let off stress so that I don’t really overthink too much about what I need to do in my future or with like school.”
It seems to have worked. La is planning on going to Cornell after graduating where she wants to study business, something that interested her on a business field trip.
“They were just talking about designing, advertising, and logos and stuff. I thought it was really cool so I thought business would help me out a lot because I want to do real estate in the future.”
That’s her end-game. But for now, she’s got a chance to accomplish a more immediate goal.
“Ever since I was young, I was like, ‘I really wanted to be a validictorian.’ so I try to maintain my GPA of 4.0 and above.”
So far, she’s done just that, landing her on the honor roll, high honor roll, and with additional academic awards.
Congrats to Edison Tech’s Sisi La on being a News10NBC Scholar Athlete of the week.
