What is your favorite class? My favorite class is AP Government and Politics with Mr. Adam Johnson. This is my favorite class because it is not just intriguing, but it is a lot of fun.

What is your toughest class? My toughest class is Honors Calculus with Mr. Snow. This is my toughest class because it is calculus — calculus is quite difficult and a huge challenge.

How do you balance your class work and your extracurricular activities? It is really hard to do, but eventually you learn how to use your time wisely and sometimes have a lot of late nights finishing homework.

What is the biggest challenge high school students face today? The biggest challenge for high school students today is keeping focused and not getting distracted. With all of the access students have today, it is easy to get very distracted. That is one of the things a high school student has to go through to prepare themselves for college.

Who has inspired you educationally, and why? The person who has inspired me educationally is my older cousin Corey-Lynn. She has always excelled at everything that she has tried because she wanted to do her best. Her mentality of working hard to achieve her goals inspires me to try to work as hard as she did.
