She hasn't yet conquered the "dragon" of procrastination, but Alexandra Yoon-Hendricks is ready to take the next step when she heads to the University of California-Berkeley next year.

But first she'll deliver the salutatorian address at the Hoboken High School's Class of 2014 graduation ceremony Wednesday evening.

Yoon-Henricks, an active member of the Hoboken High Theater Co., considered attending NYU, the University of Chicago and George Washington University before selecting Cal-Berkeley.

A three-time national award-winning member of the Harvard Model Congress, Yoon-Hendricks also served as the editor-in-chief of "The Redwing Reader," president of the student council and has worked for "Sex, Etc.," a teen sexuality health magazine.

Yoon-Hendricks plans to join theater and "The Daily Californian" while at college.
