My name is Estevan Atencio, I am 17 years old and currently a senior at Escalante High School in Tierra Amarilla N,M. My parents are Felipe and Ruby Atencio, I have two other siblings a little brother and a older brother. I am apart of many extracurricular activities such as football, weight training, track and field, 4-H, local Pilgrimage for Vocations group, and also La Morada. My favorite hobbies to do while having nothing on my hands are lifting weights, helping my dad with his jobs, and hanging out with the family around the house. Since I was a little boy I have always loved to design and draw things. So after I graduate I will be attending Central New Mexico Community College and be studying Architecture and Design.
