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

A: “I play club volleyball and I am on the varsity volleyball team here at Huron. I like to paint and hangout with friends in my free time.”


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

A: “I recommend taking economics as a sophomore. Economics helped me better understand math, science and the market in general. Everything in that class has been useful to my everyday life as well as my academics.”


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

A: “An interesting fact about me is that I love the smell of gasoline.”


Q: Where do you see yourself in ten years?

A: “In ten years, I see myself being a rich scientist with two boxers, a cat and maybe a spouse. I will be living in a big house that has a pool.”


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

A: “I am excited to be an upperclassman this year and I love the social aspect of being a junior. However, I am worried about my grades, the SAT and colleges because this year is important. I want to do well so that I can get into a good college. ”


Q: Who is your idol and why?

A: “My idol is my mom because she works hard for what she wants. She is a great person and I wish that she received more credit for the things she does. I want to be like her when I’m older because she is selfless, caring, courageous, intelligent and kind.”

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

A: “One lesson high school has taught me is that if something doesn’t matter in 20 minutes, then it won’t matter in 20 years. Therefore, all the drama and grades that we are worried about now will be irrelevant later on in life, so what’s the point of stressing out about it now.
