Learner Spotlight: Jadelyn Cristalinas
Jadelyn Belle Cristalinas is an eighth grade learner with iLEAD Exploration. She is a kind, compassionate, driven, young lady who enjoys school, dance, writing, art, and going to Disneyland with her friends and family.
In school, Jadelyn excels at math and likes writing short stories. She participates in a weekly class with a group of her peers discussing current events, practicing formal logic, math, Latin, and public speaking. Jadelyn is definitely not one to shy away from speaking in front of a group or crowd. She is quick to memorize speeches and reports, and even quicker to recite them with the fervor and inflection of a true story teller.
Jadelyn LOVES dance. Dancing since she was 3 years old, it is safe to say that it is one of her greatest passions. She takes nine classes a week, in the styles of: ballet, jazz, hip hop, tap, and body percussion; ballet being her favorite. She has participated in her local studio’s recital for 10 years straight and doesn’t look to stop any time soon. Jadelyn has recently performed in the Antelope Valley Ballet’s production of “The Nutcracker,” for the third time, and was asked to be a part of the company’s cast as an apprentice member. She is delighted for the opportunity and even more excited to be able to work with talented professionals.
Outside of school and dance, Jadelyn is still just your good ol’, fun loving 13-year-old girl. She enjoys hanging out with her group of close-knit friends, playing video games, reading, and watching anime. One of her favorite pastimes is going to Disneyland with her friends and family. She has visited the park over two hundred times and never tires of it.
