KidsTek’s Student of the Month is Trinady Castaneda from Denver’s North High School. Trinady is a rising sophomore at North and was a part of the KidsTek high school summer program this year. She distinguished herself with her bubbly personality, her kind heart, and her drive for success.
“Trin was a ton of fun to have as a part of our summer camp! Since we had a smaller group of students, her fun-loving personality really shone through and added a great energy to our classroom,” said Senior Instructor Emily Tow.
Trinady said her favorite part about the summer program was “connecting with the teachers,” and that since “it was a small group it was easier for me to work with them.” She also enjoyed “learning some computer skills and more about ethics.”
In addition to earning a laptop from KidsTek and a certification in Business Ethics through the Better Business Bureau’s LIFT program, Trinady also earned an additional laptop for a family member by making a case in writing for why her relative should receive the laptop.
After high school, Trinady is interested in pursuing a career as a surgeon, but her backup plan is to build up her YouTube channel. In her free time, she enjoys editing videos, working on her art skills, and reading. She also likes watching anime and horror movies.
