Zoe Rodriguez is a senior at Van Nuys High School, Performing Arts magnet and has a 4.0 GPA. She played the national anthem on her violin at the 2017 CA State Youth Championships opening ceremonies.

Zoe grew up in a bowling center with a bowling family. She also coordinated food drives to a nearby food bank, which she helped organize and promote to league members delivering food and school supplies to the food bank. She kept score for the adaptive tournament, where bowlers with special needs compete but need help keeping score. And when the Police and Fire World Games came to the San Fernando Valley, I spent a week at PINZ meeting bowlers from all over the world and supporting our local police and firefighter bowlers.

Zoe hopes to study civil engineering and pursue a career in urban studies in college this fall.
