Super Kid: Andrea Price of Monroe

Two schools: To further her goal of becoming a doctor, Andrea Price joined the medical assisting program at Sno-Isle Tech Skills Center this school year. “It’s an opportunity to dip my toes into the medical world more. I already know I have a huge passion for it. … Now I’m positive that the medical field is where my career is going to be.”

She also attends Academy Northwest in Snohomish, a private school.

Baby doc: After college, Andrea wants to become an ob-gyn and open a clinic for pregnant teens in Latin America. She is especially interested in helping girls who have been sold into prostitution. “I very much have a passion and drive to serve women.”

Mission trips: Andrea has gone on four mission trips with various churches. She spent two weeks in both Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic and took two five-day trips to Mexico. She doesn’t speak Spanish fluently but believes she will learn the language in time.

Giving back: Andrea has volunteered with a junior high youth group and with the Pregnancy Resource Center of Snohomish County. She organized a fundraising dance that collected money for the center to buy an ultrasound screen. She is also ASB president for the medical assisting program at Sno-Isle.

Country girl: Andrea lives with her parents, two brothers and a sister on five acres in Monroe. She’s always lived in Monroe and enjoys the country.

Mocha madness: Andrea’s favorite drink is a peppermint white chocolate mocha. She drinks them year-round, preferably sitting in a coffee shop, chatting with friends. “Every season for me is a peppermint mocha season.”

Inspired writers: “The Atonement Child” by Francine Rivers is Andrea’s favorite book. The novel is about a Christian girl who is raped and decides to keep the baby. Her favorite poet is the late Shel Silverstein. “Not only do (his poems) leave you thinking about what he said, but also walking away laughing.” Andrea journals and writes her own poetry.

Big thanks: Andrea says her main supporters are Jesus Christ and her parents, Jeff and Ronda Price. “No matter what I choose to do, they back me up 100 percent. They’re constantly there to remind me that I can do it.”
