STANJ — Senior Scholarship
My name is Javier Martinez in the graduating class of 2020. I come from Clifton, New Jersey but attend Passaic County Technical Institute for Theatre Arts. In high school I was awarded The Governor’s Award, became a member of the honorary Thespian Society, and nominated Homecoming Count. Throughout high school I was never one to be bright in academics, but was always at the top of my theatre class for four years straight, became Treasure of Thespian Society, President of the Performing Arts Club, a member of the GSA Committee, a member of the Dance Club, was cast in the school’s musical for three years, and worked on community theater. Not only was I strongly interested in acting, but worked as stage crew, makeup artist, painter, and sound and lighting technician. After receiving my diploma, I will gladly attend the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in Los Angeles to continue to perfect my craft and pursue my career in acting.
