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

A: “My hobbies include reading, baking, and gardening, I’m currently working on a little lettuce plant. I ran track but I’m not running at the moment.”


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

A: “I would recommend student council, I think it’s a great way to be involved and make a change in your school it also gives you a respected platform to voice your opinions and concerns about the school.”


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

A: “When I was about 12 years old I was roller skating and bit through my lip with my own teeth.”


Q: Where do you see yourself in ten years?

A: “In ten years I see myself working for a professional sports team, traveling the world, and seeing new places. I’ll probably be a few years into my political career and have been married for a year or two.”


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

A: “I felt excited, one year closer to graduating and gaining independence and I get to be an upperclassman without the stress of college applications and all that not-so-fun stuff.”


Q: Who is your idol and why?

A: “My grandparents Patricia and Don Adams. They’re my idols because they’re just like me. My grandma likes to read and bake while my grandpa likes to relax and watch TV. Mostly they’re my idols because they want whatever I want in life as long as it makes me happy and is my choice.”


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

A: “Having a small circle of friends isn’t a bad thing, yes big groups of people can be fun but it’s also nice to have those few close trusted friends. Also! Not everything you hear needs to be repeated to someone else, It’s okay to keep things to yourself.”
