Student Name: Tobias Osterhaug
Mother’s Name: Birgit Osterhaug
Father’s Name: Einar Osterhaug
Clubs & Activities: My favorite extracurricular is drama. Through Play Production I spend at a minimum of four hours a week after school in the theater, working on plays. We build all our own sets, costume ourselves, get our own props, choose our plays, and when we do one-act plays we even do the directing. I am currently playing a lead in our musical “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels,” the character of Lawrence, and that means spending three hours a day minimum after school rehearsing during the two weeks before performance. I also enjoy skiing, cooking, and playing video games. I also am a huge history buff, and sometimes I read ourhistory textbook for fun. My favorite thing to learn about is the Cold War.
Athletics: During the fall I play soccer with a rec team that I have played with for the past eight years. I also have played Ultimate Frisbee for the school, but I had to stop doing that because it conflicted with my Drama schedule.
Honors: I am in Full IB (International Baccalaureate), regarded as one of the most difficult high school diploma paths in the country. I take a Full IB course load, meaning I have had six IB courses and play production during the first semester junior year and second semester senior year, and six IB classes (with Theory of Knowledge) second semester junior year, first semester senior year. These classes include core classes, IB Spanish, IB Ecology/Anatomy, and IB Art History. During these classes I have had to write major essays (2,000 word minimum) on topics ranging from the role of women as wives and mothers in “A Doll’s House “and “The Great Gatsby” to a comparison of color theory between Seurat and Kandinsky.
Awards: I received a commendation from the National Merit Scholarship program for being in the 98th percentile of students taking the PSAT. I was accepted into Western Washington University’s Honors Program. I have been in National Honor Society since 10th grade.
Community Service: My community service has been largely theater-based. I assisted with production and directing with Seaview Elementary’s production of “Oliver Twist,” and was a volunteer assistant stage manager at the Phoenix Theater at Firdale Village during their production of “Fuddy Meers.” Other service is mostly through National Honor Society, including Waste Warriors during the Taste of Edmonds, and helping out with multi-cultural club’s Hunger Dinner
Culminating Project: Because I am in Full IB, my culminating project was replaced with the Extended Essay, a 4,000-word independent research-based essay on a topic of my choosing. I chose to do an analysis of the spread and effect of Constantin Stanislavski’s acting method and teachings in the United States. This included many hours logged with books from the University of Washington’s Drama Library.
Future Educational Goals: I plan to pursue a four-year degree in International Relations, or a double major in Political Science and Economics at one of the following universities (acceptance letters pending): Western Washington University (accepted in the honors program), Northeastern University, Pomona College, Swarthmore University, or Lewis and Clark College. I also plan to study abroad in China. I would then like to get my Masters in International Relations.
Future Career Goals: I plan to take the Foreign Service Entrance Exam after completing my Bachelor’s degree, and pursue a career as a diplomat with the State Department. I would someday like to hold a high-ranking position within the State Department, maybe even Secretary of State. I love traveling and I love statesmanship and the flows of international relations.
Anything else we should know?: I have dual-citizenship with Germany, because my mother is a German native and not a U.S. citizen. I also love cats and building computers.
