What is your favorite class? Physics. I like physics because it is different and we get to use really cool inventions in class.

What is your toughest class? AP Psychology because there is a lot of work and it makes me have to think about situations in an abstract way.

How do you balance your class work and your extracurricular activities? It’s all about discipline. You have to make time to do your work, even if you have something else you’d rather be doing.

What is the biggest challenge high school students face today? Changes. Everything changes each year. You need to adapt yourself to the changes.

Who has inspired you educationally? Dr. Christina Chaplin. She was the first person from Lake Region to go to Harvard. I want to also leave a legacy, just like she did.
