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

A: I love reading and playing with my cat. I also play the tuba and am on the Huron Softball team


Q: How is this year’s learning different from last years? 

A: It feels like the teachers have fully transitioned back to in person learning. There are a lot more lectures and a lot less of just answering questions on a google doc.


Q: Which classes have you found the most interesting and why?

A: My science classes have been interesting. Between biology last year and chemistry, psychics, and earth science this year, there has been such a wide range of topics in each class that are fun in different ways. 


Q: Describe something that surprised you coming back to school this year that you weren’t expecting?

A: I wasn’t expecting to have so many new friends. I didn’t have very many familiar faces in my classes, but I am very happy to say that I have found multiple people in each class that make it more fun.


Q: What are your thoughts about personal project? What were some challenges you have faced so far? What are you working on?

A: Personal project was very crazy. It rolled out really slowly, but by December we were all in panic mode. It was quite challenging to find a topic because I knew that it would make or break my experience in the class. I ended up making a poster calling attention to some of the struggles that LGBTQ+ teens face


Q: If you could change one thing from your freshman self, what would it be? 

A: I would tell myself to worry less about grades. Grades are important, but having fun and enjoying yourself is more important.
