What is your favorite class? Math (Calculus), I understand it easily, but it’s still challenging. I also like being able to figure out the solutions.

What is your toughest class? AP Composition and Literature, I’m not very good at writing or analyzing writing and that’s what the entire class is about.

How do you balance your class work and your extracurricular activities? I make sure I take advantage of my two open campus periods to get my homework done before practice.

What is the biggest challenge high school students face today? Procrastination, there is always something more fun or interesting to do instead of homework so it keeps getting put off until “tomorrow.” It’s hard to balance our social lives, support sports teams, participate on sports teams and do schoolwork with the time we have.

Who has inspired you educationally? My parents have always pushed me to do my best in everything including academics.
