Teen Face: Multi-tasking senior's future 'an open playing field'

It seems there's nothing Ukiah High School senior Mariah Larwood can't do. She gets straight A's, swims and plays water polo competitively, paints, is student body president, operates a micro-charity, and still has time for a boyfriend, friends and family.

"She's basically tops at everything she does," said Ukiah High School leadership class teacher Bob Dieffenbach. He predicts Larwood will continue to do great things with her life after high school.

While she enjoys and excels at math, Larwood said she is inclined to pursue a career that involves people, rather than numbers.

She considered engineering, but for now is more interested in exploring her creative side.

Larwood hasn't ruled out medicine or law, but she is currently planning to focus on business or graphic design when she heads off to college in the fall.
