About (Summary)

My name is Isai Villanueva, and I am a 17 year old high school senior. I am most passionate about aviation and pushing myself to the best I can be. I am a dual enrollment student taking courses at Rex and Margaret Fortune Early College High School and Cosumnes River College. By the time I graduate high school, I will have received my Associates of Science Degree, Associates of Liberal Arts Degree, and my High School diploma. My passion is aviation. Ever since my first flight in an airplane, I knew that I’ve wanted to take control of an aircraft and navigate the skies for myself. I began my glider pilot training at the Williams Soaring Center when I was 14. Two years later, I soloed my first glider on August 1, 2020, and shortly afterward I passed my check-ride for my Private Pilot’s License for Gliders on November 14 of 2020. As of August 2021, I am a Private Pilot for Gliders and for single engine aircraft. My determination to accomplish my goals and strive to become the best version of myself came from my parents. Both of my parents were born in third world countries. They did not have many opportunities available to them. They have raised me to take advantage of the resources that are available to me and to work diligently so that I may accomplish my goals.
