Zidane Indarta is a member of the boys soccer team at Cleveland. After moving to the United States from Indonesia, Zidane has been vastly involved in various programs and volunteer work. His life experiences have driven him to be an active leader in the Asian American and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) and Muslim communities. Zidane is also a member of the NAACP/Metro Environmental Justice program, where he has spent the last two years as an Outreach Coordinator and was a leader in the local youth NAACP chapter. This enabled him to lead BIPOC youth on nature hikes around Portland during summer break. With his experience in this program, Zidane helped train an incoming cohort of student leaders to improve the work in this program for the years to come. Through the avenue of soccer, Zidane has taken his passion for the sport and has given back to his community through TOPSoccer. In this program he helped coach youth soccer kids with developmental disabilities, which has given him a stronger connection to his local community. While balancing his extracurricular activities and programs, Zidane graduated with a 3.6 GPA whilst enrolling in many IB courses at Cleveland. Zidane will be continuing his education at Lewis and Clark College to pursue a BA in International Studies and Law. After graduating, he hopes to find a job in the legal system helping first generation students and families navigating the US education system.
