Q: Tell us a little bit about yourself and what hobbies/sports you do.
A: “I play for the Huron band. Outside of school, I’m mainly working on my jobs or playing with my dog and playing video games, or practicing music.”

Q: What is one class/club you would recommend to underclassmen? Why?
A: “I haven’t really done anything for any clubs recently, but BPA seems fun because there’s a lot of options you can choose from. If you find something that interests you, you might be able to find someone else that has that same interest and make new friends.”

Q: What’s an interesting/unique fact about yourself?
A: “I taught myself how to play like three instruments, maybe four. But I like to learn music on my own time. I think it’s really interesting how different instruments combine.”

Q: Where do you see yourself in ten years?
A: “Hopefully working a job that I somewhat enjoy. I don’t really want to have some boring office job. Maybe something that gives me the freedom to move around and travel.”

Q: How do you feel about starting Junior year and why?
A: “So far? It’s been having its ups and downs, like some classes are easier than I thought and some classes are harder, but I’m not doing bad. And I think being an upperclassman gives me a lot more freedom now so I enjoy it.”

Q: Who is your idol and why?
A: “I don’t really have an idol but there are a lot of people I look up to. Maybe my grandparents. They worked really hard in their youth. And now they’re living the life in Vegas and it’s a good thing for them. They enjoy it a lot.”

Q: What is one lesson high school has taught you?
A: “Just try your hardest. People are more sympathetic for hard efforts than trying to take the easy way out, and it’s definitely more rewarding to do your own work and see yourself.”
