Adrian Hou Is Making His Impact Felt At Union Catholic

In our latest installment of Feature Friday, we shine the spotlight on Union Catholic junior Adrian Hou.
Hou, who lives in Fords, is on the Forensics team, is a member of the National Honor Society, is an Honor Roll Student, and plays in a band. 
Here is our Q and A with Hou-
Tell me how excited you are about the Forensics season, and what do you love the most about being a member of the team? 

I love the community and the people. 

How and when did you first get involved with Forensics, and what made you want to join and be part of it?

I started in freshman year by joining the debate team. The category wasn’t really for me, so then I moved to Congress in sophomore year, where I had some success.  I wanted to be a part of it because I find rhetoric and discussion very interesting, and I also wanted to work on public speaking.

Can you list everything else that you are involved in at UC besides Forensics? 

I am part of the American Politics and Social Justice club. APSJ is a great club where we create a newsletter about politics and social justice. I have written a couple of pieces for it. I also perform with the music program sometimes, and you can see me on the bass in the Christmas concert coming up.  

Can you list all the awards/honors you have received at UC? Honor Roll, National Honor Society, and any other academic awards etc.?

I have been on Honor Roll since freshman year, and I am in the National Honor Society.

What does it mean to you to have earned so much academic success? 

I am proud of my academic success.

What do you love the most about being a student at Union Catholic?

I love the community. The students and teachers are all so welcoming and great.

What kind of advice would you give to younger students who are considering attending UC? Why should they come to UC and what will UC give them that they won’t be able to find at other schools?

UC has a very unique community and atmosphere, which in my opinion is one of the foremost considerations when considering a school. The best way to experience this for yourself is freshman for a day.

How about the future, Adrian? Do you know what you’d like to study when you get to college and what type of career you’d like to pursue?

I am likely going to major in computer science, however I am not entirely sure what career I want to pursue in the field yet.  Also, even though I am probably not going to study music in college, music will always remain part of my life.

Favorite class and teacher at UC?

Ms. Wen and her Mandarin class

Favorite UC moment so far? 

All of the little moments with friends everyday.

Favorite UC Core Value and why? 

Respect. Respect is so important to a good society, and if you respect other people they will respect you back.

Life Motto?

You'll never know if you don't go; you'll never shine if you don't glow.
