Jacquelinne Marroquin

Jacquelinne Marroquin is an 18 year old senior at Jordan-Matthews High School in Siler City. She was born in Houston, Texas. After her birth, she lived in Guatemala and moved back to the United States four years ago with her mom and dad. Jacquelinne really cares about the plastic pollution issue and this inspired her to start the Water Bottle Recycling Program at her high school. She also loves poetry, volunteers as a translator at her church, and loves history and politics. She plans on going to a 4-year college and majoring in Political Science and wants a minor in International Relations. Her dream is to work with the United Nations or in an embassy to be able to bring help to communities living in the United States and other countries too.
