Q: Tell us a little bit about yourself and what hobbies/sports you do.

A: “I’m a freshman at Huron who likes to draw, listen to music, and swim.”


Q: How would you describe your transition from middle to high school?

A: “It was exciting, but also nerve-wracking because half of middle school was online.”


Q: What classes are you most looking forward to taking either now or in the future?

A: “I’m looking forward to taking art and design.”


Q: What are 3 words to describe your first day of high school and why did you choose them?

A: “Exciting, nervous, and curious. I was excited but also nervous because the school was so big and I was curious because I wanted to meet new people.”


Q: How difficult was it to navigate around the school in the first few weeks? When do you think you’ll have a good grasp of the entire building structure?

A: “I basically got to classes using my phone for the first week but I got the hang of it after. I use the same route everyday, so there are many parts of the school I haven’t been to.”


Q: Who has left an impression on you in the first couple weeks— whether it be a classmate, staff member, or teacher? Describe the impression. 

A: “Probably all my teachers because they’re super nice!”


Q: How do you want to remember your high school experience four years later? What are you doing now or how do you plan to make that happen? 

A: “I want to hang out with friends, have fun, and make the best out of everything.”
