Lake Washington High School
Robin Ying has a passion for business and sustainability—but more notably, the intersection of the two subjects.  Inspired by her Advanced Placement Environmental Science coursework, she engaged in an environmental internship as a Clean Water Ambassador Intern for King County during the summer of her sophomore year.  Coming back to school that fall, she realized the need for civic engagement within a community close to her—Lake Washington High School’s DECA chapter.  Engaging her chapter in community service projects, including environmental restoration through Green Kirkland Day at Watershed Park, she brought two passions together while inspiring servant leadership among the community’s future business leaders.  Earning multiple accolades through DECA, including two first-in-state finishes in the Buying and Merchandising Team Decision Making Event, she is a leader who can excel inside the competition room and out.  Robin serves on the Kirkland Youth Council, is the secretary for Girls Who Code at her school, is a three-time WIAA state qualifier in swimming, and is a marketing director for the environmental nonprofit, The Tomorrow Project.  Robin plans to pursue a degree in business with concentration is sustainable business, while minoring in policy and management, hopefully at NYU’s Stern School of Business.
