Albany: Blake Perez


Grade: 10th

Event: Spelling and Vocabulary

 How long you've been competing in UIL: I've been competing in UIL since the 4th grade.

 What's the most challenging/nerve-wracking thing about your event: The most nerve-wracking thing about my event is waiting for the results! It drives me insane having to wait so long even though the graders grade as fast as they can. The most challenging thing is studying down to the punctuation mark, literally!

 First thing you'll do when you win: The first thing I did when I won at Regionals was celebrate with my team members and then call my parents. If we do that good at State, I will do the same thing.

 Past honors in the event: Past honors in my participating in Spelling are placing first as a team at Regionals last year in Spelling, placing third individually this year at District, as well as placing third as a team, and placing first as a team this year at Regionals.

 Extracurricular activities/other UIL events: I am in no other UIL events - one is hard enough for me! My extracurricular activities include Boy Scouts, in which I'm currently an Eagle Scout.

 College plans: I currently have no major college plans except to go to Cisco Junior College to get my basics.

 Birthplace: McAllen, Texas

 One thing your parents, a sibling or even a best friend might not know about you: One thing most people don't know about me is that I really like to listen to music and read fantasy books
