Meet Bucky’s Family member Sley Vega!
COMMUNITY CONNECTS US.
Sley Vega is a senior at Beaverton High School who was born and raised in Beaverton, Oregon. Sley lives with her mom and her younger sister Camila, who is currently an 8th grader at Meadow Park and will be attending Beaverton next year. She also has an older brother Michael, who graduated from BHS with the Class of 2014 and goes to school in Arizona.
Sley is highly involved in different activities at BHS. She is a part of LINK Crew, National Honor Society, Welcome to the Dam, and Social Media Team. A big part of her time at BHS has been being a part of the Marketing Pathway. Through the classes she has taken, she has found that she is interested in pursuing some sort of business degree in college. She has loved being able to create meaningful memories with her fellow social media team members, and the opportunity to network and learn how to improve our schools social platforms through the trips she has been lucky to go on.
Outside of school Sley works two jobs. She is a nanny for an 8-year-old girl Monday-Wednesday and has been working at Sunset Lanes for the past two years as a birthday host and game room attendant on the weekends! When she has the time, she also volunteers at Play.Fit.Fun, an after school program where she helps kids stay active while playing games with them and teaches them the roles of leadership.
One of the coolest things Sley has done in her life was when she traveled to Cancun, Mexico with her siblings to visit her dad and they went swimming with a whale shark. Although it was scary in the moment to think she was swimming with a shark, it’s an awesome feeling to be able to say that she swam with the world’s largest species of fish.
Sley is looking forward to graduation and her top two schools right now are University of Oregon and Portland State. As much as she is looking forward to leaving BHS behind, she is also soaking up every last minute of what she will miss most which is the spirit at sporting events, her marketing classes, her teachers, and her awesome Beaver Lodge class. Some advice Sley would give to underclassmen is to make sure to always stay on top of things, step out of your comfort zone, and get involved! You will enjoy your time in high school so much more if you are able to find a club or activity you feel best fits you and create long lasting memories within these clubs.
