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

A: I do swimming, and water polo. Some of my hobbies include crocheting, and reading, and I also like to play Just Dance


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

A: Huron Women’s Water Polo. I really enjoy the sport and I think that it’s not too complicated to learn once you start. The community is really welcome to people, even if they don’t have a clue what the game is. 


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

A: I collect Squishmallows, and I currently own almost 25 of them


Q: Where do you see yourself in ten years?

A: In ten years I hope I am financially stable and living on my own. I love to travel and see places, so I hope I’ll be doing a lot of traveling.


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

A: I have mixed feelings about senior year. More than anything I’m excited to be done with high school and move on with my life. But once high school is over, I’m planning on going to college. I’m a little bit afraid to be away from all my family and friends for that long.


Q: Who is your idol and why?

A: My mom. She’s one of the strongest and most selfless people that I’ve ever met. Seeing her be so hard working and always trying to do her best makes me want to do better too 


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

A: It has taught me to stay focused. A lot of times it’s easy for people to get sidetracked with things that aren’t going to matter in the future. So I think the most important thing is to set a goal and not lose track of it.
