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

A: I’m a middle child of 4 (infamous) brothers. I enjoy playing tennis for Huron and practicing the violin for the orchestra.”


Q: What is one class/club you would recommend to underclassmen? Why?

A: HOSA, a medical-profession-based club, is an awesome community to be a part of. Not only do you get to learn new things about the field of medicine, but the experiences at competitions are super fun. “


Q: What’s an interesting/unique fact about yourself?

A: I have perfect pitch! Basically, I can recognize notes that are played by instruments without having any reference. It’s a pretty rare thing to have, so I’m happy that I have it.”


Q: Where do you see yourself in ten years?

A: Hopefully I’ll be working a job at NASA or another tech company. I’m just praying I get to college in one piece first.”


Q: How do you feel about almost being a senior? Are you excited about almost being through junior year? 

A: It’s relieving, but at the same time pretty stressful. Ending high school next year gives me something to look forward to, but applying to college seems like such a daunting task.”


Q: Who is your idol and why?

A: I’d say probably Keanu Reeves. He’s a very successful guy, and he’s also really wise and down to earth.”


Q: What is one lesson high school has taught you?

A: Definitely stay organized. It’ll make everything less stressful and easier in the long run.”
