Aruwin chose Colorado Connections Academy, a virtual school, because it offered her the flexibility to pursue her dream of becoming a professional alpine skier.
In between practice sessions and competitions, Aruwin spends time planning for her future. After high school, she hopes to attend Cornell University, with the goal of becoming an architect or industrial designer after her skiing career.
