Meet Bucky’s Family member, Ainsley Adams!
COMMUNITY CONNECTS US.
Junior Ainsley Adams was born and raised in the same house her whole life in Beaverton, Oregon. Ainsley lives with her mom, Teresa, and dad, Brit and has no siblings. She used to hate being an only child but now realizes that it has taught her to be more independent and allowed her parents to give her more freedom and trust. Ainsley has a dog and a cat, that is like her sibling.
Ainsley is very family oriented and considers her cousins her best friends. Also, her dad’s parents live only 5 minutes away which makes it very easy to hang out with them all the time! Every summer, she goes camping at Fishermen’s Bend with her grandparents, uncle, aunt, and cousins. Also, Ainsley and her family have traveled to Maui, New York, and California. She loves Disneyland because it’s such a fun and happy place to go, and matches her bubbly and positive personality. One day, Ainsley hopes to go to Paris because it has always been on her bucket list.
Ainsley is very involved within the Beaverton community and has dedicated a lot of her time to school. In fact, Ainsley’s biggest accomplishment was getting through pre-calc with an A both semesters! She has been on leadership every semester and is currently the ASB VP of Student Relations. She is the Key Club secretary and part of the National Honor Society and LINK Crew.
This year, she joined Yearbook to try something new and continue to stay involved as much as she can. Ainsley’s favorite class was AP US History because she loves Ms. Kavan and believes that every student should take a class that teaches the history of our country. Mr. Meuwissen was also one of her favorite teachers because he made social studies super interesting and was very understanding and kind.
Her hard work and persistence continue outside of school, as she is a Nordstrom Fashion Ambassador and a competitive tap dancer for Beaverton Dance Center. She has dance competitions throughout the year and the summer of her sophomore year she had a national competition in Seaside. The day before, when she was walking out of her bathroom, a nail got stuck in her foot for a total of 2 hours. She persevered through this accident and still danced that weekend because she didn’t want to let the team down. Something that other students might not know about her is that she has been a vegetarian for 5 years. Becoming a vegetarian was a struggle at first, but as time passed, it became easier for her to order at restaurants and compromise to meals.
Ainsley loves music, especially Elton John’s classic hits. She has been to many concerts and is going to Billy Joel this December which she is extremely excited about! Ainsley loves spending time with her cousin Madison and singing Bruno Mars songs. Her favorite holiday is Christmas because of the music, decorating the house and all of her families parties and traditions. Every Christmas morning, the Adams family has Chorizo on little rolls which they have to buy from a very special place that her great-grandparents used to order it from. Ainsley’s family loves to follow traditions, especially during the holiday season because they are very close and love each other dearly.
Ainsley plans to attend an out of state 4-year university for a fresh start and to meet new people. When Ainsley grows up, she either wants to be a sports reporter or an event planner. In fact, she did an internship last summer to see how people plan weddings and found it magical. Ainsley is always finding ways to help others and wants to spread awareness that every person should be treated with kindness. Her mom taught her that you don’t know what others have gone through or what they are currently going through which has allowed her to have such a positive outlook on life.
