Who is Alysun Shamburg?

Story image 1_0


Who is Alysun Shamburg? Sitting across the table from her, you may assume she is quiet and reserved, but when you get to know her you find that she is actually full of curiosity.

Occupying her curiosity are not only goals and dreams, but also people. There are two types of people in this world, Shamburg believes - people who will hurt you and people who will help.

The HHS senior has a curiosity for new people and new places despite her fears. Her curiosity is something she hopes she never loses, one of her strongest characteristics. Shamburg has strength and perseverance, along with many other traits; she has goals and dreams, she knows what she wants but is somewhat uncertain, but she is going to be successful in someway, which is her power.

In the future, Shamburg wants to move to Chicago and explore the city’s wide variety of cultural diversity. One of the most heartwarming things she has ever seen, she explains, took place in Chicago. She was in a restaurant with her parents when two men walked in, clearly on a first date. As the night progressed, she could see them becoming more and more comfortable.

Shamburg’s goal is to attend the University of Chicago, majoring in cinema media and minoring in theater. Someone who has impressed Aly is Xavier Delion, who has directed six movies, his first at sixteen years old. Delion’s achievement, she says, has worked to encourage her own curiosity and fuel her drive toward her future.
