11th grade student * Mentored as sound crew

I am currently a junior in the TCP program at Charter and am sixteen years old. I come from a busy family of six, including my mom, step-dad, brother, sister, and step-brother. My family means the world to me, and I wouldn’t be the person I am without them. I have a passion for learning, as well as fitness. Academics and education are extremely important to me, and I love working out and pushing my body past its limits. You’ll usually find me either studying or at my Crossfit box getting my sweat on. I plan on going into a career somewhere in an athletic training field, so I can use my passion to inspire others. The Drawing Out Genius® project has also inspired in me a love for cinema and the film-production

A passion for visual media drives Drennen Anderson toward creating a career in this field. At Escondido Charter School, where he graduated in 2013, he learned skills in web site design, photography, and graphic design. During part of his senior year he produced and engineered programs for the school’s Internet radio station. Recently, he built a web site for a civil engineering firm in Oceanside, CA.

Growing up, Drennen’s schooling was very diverse and comprised attendance at a private school, home schooling, and public and charter schools, including Palomar Community College as a high school student.

Drennen has won a first place ribbon at the Del Mar Fair for photography and two second place finishes for a graphic art design for a protective IOS device and a graphic art poster he designed for the documentary, Drawing Out Genius. He also provided input for the film’s chosen poster.

Raised in a family with his mother, father, and four sisters, Drennen at a Christian Conference Center. He is furthering his studies in graphic design and music recording at Mira Costa Community College in Oceanside. He has won many awards in the AWANA Bible study program at his church. Drennen’s hobbies include hiking, backpacking, listening to music, and playing his guitars.

Zoe Horzen

11th grade student * Mentored as a Camera Crew

I’m Zoe Horzen, I’m 17 and a senior at Escondido Charter High School. I chose ECHS because none of the schools where I live were going to meet my needs as a student. I live in San Bernardino County and take the train every week to attend Charter. It has been one the best decisions I’ve ever made! The school helped to bring me out of my shell and has opened up opportunities that I never thought I’d experience. I’ve been active in Theater and International Leadership courses. They’ve both been amazing. Theater made me more outgoing and more willing to try new things. International Leadership opened up new passions for me. I never realized how much I wanted to see the world, experience new things and make my mark on the world. Visiting China with that class was easily one of the best things to happen to me. In turn, these classes and experiences have made me want to go into Psychology and Film. My goal is to study in the San Francisco area.
