Hello! My name is Franklin Wu and I am currently a freshman at Lamar High School. I am a native Houstonian, tennis player and cross-country runner. Apart from sports, I also participate on my school’s debate team. I compete in Foreign Extemporaneous Speaking, which helped to nurture my passion for politics and writing. In my free time, I volunteer with various organizations in efforts to move forward in developing solutions to the challenge of climate change. I have a brother in middle school and a loving grandfather who always has a story to share. I love our city for its delicious foods, diverse culture, but more importantly, the connection we share as Houstonians.
