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

A: “I’m Brooke and I’m a junior. I play soccer and field hockey for huron, and my hobbies include watching sports, listening to music, and rewatching the Breakfast Club.”


Q: What is one thing you would recommend to underclassmen? Why?

A: “I would absolutely recommend playing a sport or a couple to underclassmen. Even if you have zero athletic ability, we always have so much fun and it’s a really great chance to make new friends and spend time with them. ”


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

A: “An interesting fact about me is that I love watching documentaries. Historical or not, I don’t care. I once spent an hour watching one about beanie babies and it was very interesting.”



Q: Where do you see yourself in ten years?

A: “In ten years, I could see myself doing a variety of things. I’ve always thought it would be fun to go into higher academia so maybe you’ll see me in grad school! All in all I’m not really sure what I’ll be doing, I just hope I’ll be having fun.”


Q: How do you feel about Junior year and why?

A: “Junior year has been really stressful so far. I took a ton of really hard classes this year and it’s been a struggle to keep up with them all. If I could go back and make a change I think I would spread out my hard classes more, over the four years I’m here.”


Q: Who is your idol and why?

A: “I wouldn’t say I really have an idol, but if I had to choose I think I would say Joan Jett. She is such an icon, and I really love everything she represents. Also she makes great music.”


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

A: “One lesson high school has taught me is that no matter how hard you try, some things just won’t work out. You can spend hours and hours staying up late doing homework, but that time won’t necessarily correlate to success. Sometimes you have to make an executive decision to just go to bed, or accept that you might not do well on the test. Stuff happens, you can’t do everything perfectly.”
