Application for Los Santos County Lifeguards

Section 1 - Personal Information

1.2 First name: Rayna
1.3 Last name: Bolero

Answer:

1.13 Do you have any medical conditions that could hinder your duties as a Lifeguard?
Answer:

1.14 Are you right-handed, left-handed or ambidextrous? (Mark with X)
[X] Right-handed
[ ] Left-handed
[ ] Ambidextrous

1.15 Why would you like to become a Lifeguard?
Answer: I used to work as a pool lifeguard as a summer job when I lived between Hialeah and Miami, in Florida. While studying last year at ULSA, I also worked part-time as a pool lifeguard in the sports hall on a few occasions. I have a deep passion to work in public service, especially within the fire department. I understand that working with and for the LS county lifeguards will provide me with a strong, transferrable skillset which can be applied to any future career I wish to pursue. Ultimately, I have consistent, fiery devotion to helping people both physically and emotionally, for nothing more than personal satisfaction.

1.16 What qualifications or skills can you bring to the division?
Answer: YMCA Lifeguard certification. I'm also going to be entering my senior year at ULSA in September to complete my bachelors in linguistics — while this degree does not directly help the division, there are numerous transferrable skills which I feel would be very helpful; the notable skills would be communication and deeper understanding of cross-cultural differences, especially with many of the beach's visitors being from outside of the US.

5.18 Write your character's background story(Minimum of 200 words)
[+] Character Background
Rayna Amira Bolero Medina is a second-generation Cuban-born American woman of Spanish and Moroccan heritage. An only child, she and her parents moved to Miami, Florida, during her early infant years, where she lived a rather affluent lifestyle in which her upbringing was isolated — her parents were both successful entrepreneurs, specializing in property construction and management, and interior design. While she grew up in a large house, and was spoiled day after day through receiving expensive toys, gadgets, and trinkets from her otherwise busy parents, she was subject to extreme loneliness that was only satisfied by the assistance of a large collection of nannies, that would unfortunately change monthly.

As Rayna grew older and went to school, she found that despite Miami being the melting pot of cultures that it is, she stood out. While a native Spanish speaker, she often got bullied due to her heritage. This stunted her abilities to socialize and grow during her early childhood, which she slowly compensated through getting involved in sport, most notably soccer and baseball. As the years passed, she excelled in her studies, although this was not indemnify her natural naïveté — languages and culture have always been paramount in her personal interests, both of which eventually landed her to take on a Bachelor of Arts in Linguistics.

After completing her high school diploma, she flew to Los Santos for work experience in hopes of being accepted into the University of Los Santos, San Andreas. While originally being accepted, she flew back to Florida, specifically Hialeah to transfer to a local university due to family commitments. During this time, Rayna worked part-time as a pool lifeguard at her local YMCA. It was not until 2021 when she flew back yet again to begin and complete her junior year as a transfer, to which she completed with flying colors. During the last few months her academic year, she joined the cheerleading team and pledged as a sister for Alpha Delta Pi, while balancing her studies and actively training in cardio and swimming, with the long-term goal of enlisting as a lifeguard after her studies, against her parents' desires.

5.19 Additional notes:
Answer: Rayna's original backstory is much longer, as it has details of her parents' backgrounds and how their religious practices influenced Rayna's understanding of faith and the paranormal, which in turn also had a huge impact on her vibrant personality and emotional intelligence. Additionally, her Conservative outlook would have also been mentioned, though I feel it's not too relevant to the application, and it's something that could potentially be metagamed. There is definitely more to the character than the backstory, but I wanted to keep it short for the sake of the application.
