What is your favorite class? Spanish, because I love my teacher and the language I’m learning.

What is your toughest class? Physics, because math has never been my strong point. The tiniest mistakes can throw you completely off.

How do you balance your class work and your extracurricular activities? I try not to sweat the small things, and most of the time, it keeps me from getting stressed out.

What is the biggest challenge high school students face today? Overcoming apathy. It’s easy to not care, it’s hard to put in the effort to do what is right.

Who has inspired you educationally? All of my teachers. I think the best way to learn something is to teach it.
