My name is Mayte Porragas and I am a senior at Castle View High School. I have lived in Colorado for most of my life, but I was born in Mexico and speak Spanish at home. I moved to the United States before I turned one, and have been living in Castle Rock since I was four. I spend most of my time dancing after school at Danza Dance Academy, where I am a Senior Elite team captain. When I’m not dancing, I am playing with kids at High Pointe Academy, where I work as a teachers aide on Mondays after school. I also attend St. Francis of Assisi Church and participate in the high school youth group. Other than that enjoy hiking, exploring, art, and being with my friends and family.
