Schools that you have been accepted to: Emerson, UMaine, Stony Brook, Purchase College, and Ithaca so far…

What is your favorite class? MKE. Humanities is my favorite class because we get to apply traditional, English-class-style skills to nonfiction and real-world situations. It’s informative and applicable to my potential future career.

What is your toughest class? MKE. Spanish 4 is my toughest class because we work hard daily in order to conquer huge goals…in a foreign language…

How do you balance your class work and your extracurricular activities? MKL. Continue to work when most are taking breaks.

What is the biggest challenge high school students face today? MKE. Negative peer influences.

Who has inspired you educationally? MKL. My sister, Leona Kluge-Edwards, has inspired me educationally because, although she goes about it in a nonchalant manner, she always strives to be her best in everything she does.
