What is your favorite class? I really enjoy history classes because it’s different than learning a formula in math, you learn something about your actual history and find out how everything evolved.

What is your toughest class? My toughest class would have to be math, it’s not that I’m bad at math it’s just it takes me a couple tries to wrap my head around a new idea quickly.

How do you balance your class work and your extracurricular activities? My coaches are usually pretty good at understanding our class load. They’ll give us team study halls before practice sometimes. As for work, I work for my mother so she’s pretty understanding, as well.

What is the biggest challenge high school students’ face today? I believe the biggest challenge high school students face is trying to find out what they want to do after high school. I’m lucky enough to have known what I wanted to do since I was in seventh grade. A lot of my friends have absolutely no idea and I believe that’s because high school is so structured. There isn’t a lot of space to venture out.

Who has inspired you educationally? I wouldn’t say a person has inspired me as much as athletics have. Athletics have always been a big part of my life and if I don’t achieve my academic goals then I can’t participate in my athletics.
