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

A: “I am a shy and laid back person who has high expectations for myself. I want to go to UCLA or the University of Michigan. Music is the one thing that keeps me calm. I also do sports outside of school. My go-to sport is basketball. Honestly, I can see myself going to a college for nursing. I want to cure and help people. My grandmother used to work as a nurse and she inspires me to set high expectations for myself.”


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

A: It was pretty smooth. There is more work here and it’s hard to keep up, but no success comes without a few challenges. 


Q: What class is the most interesting so far and why?

A: I like world history because all students engage with their learning. History tells both sides of the story, the good and the bad. 


Q: What are 3 words to describe your first months of high school and why?

A: “Challenging, inspirational, and educational”


Q: How has high school surprised you so far? Were there any skills you had to learn to get work done or fit school into your schedule?


A: “It surprised me by how accepting the environment was. This school is very diverse and accepts everyone for who they are. Huron has no dress code, so you may wear what you feel comfortable in, as long as it is appropriate.”



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 remember I went out of my comfort zone and experienced new things.”
