Schools that you have been accepted to: Bridgton Academy, Southern Maine Community College.

What is your favorite class? MM. My favorite class is History as I am always intrigued and involved in conversations. I also love learning about present day cultures and how different nations came about and how different aspects such as geography has shaped their lives.

What is your toughest class? MM. Math, I am not a fan of formulas and stuff like that, it really bores me. The “death of me” is boredom. If I am engaged in a discussion, I can contribute and learn.

How do you balance your class work and your extracurricular activities? MM. Dedication. I do my class work as a priority and then the dedication to get better or help out gets me to the next level. I am devoted to any project that I do and I see it through to the end.

What is the biggest challenge high school students’ face today? MM. All the distractions. I admit that when I go home, it is extremely easy to get onto Facebook or Twitter, or in my case ESPN.

Who has inspired you educationally? Educationally, I am inspired by my father. I see myself as a mini him, and I see how successful he is now in his life doing what he wanted to do as a kid. I constantly ask him what high school was like for him and how he did in certain classes
