What do you like most about school, why? I like to hang out with friends and to learn new things, because no matter how smart you are, you can still learn new things.

What is your biggest challenge in school? I would have to say that my biggest challenge in school is staying on task.

What is your favorite subject, and why? My favorite subject in school is math, because I am good at it, and it is fun to learn about.

If you could change one thing about school, what would it be (and why)? If I could change one thing about school, I would make it start later because most mornings when I get to school, I have no energy to learn because I do not get enough sleep due to playing sports and doing schoolwork. So I think that starting school later would be better.

What characteristics do you believe a good teacher should possess? I believe that a good teacher should be organized, easy to understand, hardworking, intelligent, and be reasonable when it comes to the amount of work they give.

What goals did you hope to achieve during your high school days? I made it into National Honor Society, started my whole senior year for soccer, got honors all four years of high school, and most importantly, survived high school.

What do you hope to do in the future in terms of career, and why are you headed in that direction? I want to go to college and major in business, and hopefully when I get out of college work for a sports team. The reason why I want to do this is because I like business and doing math, and on top of that I like sports.

What do you think it will take to be successful in the future? I think it will take being hardworking, organized, exacting, and not giving up when things get difficult. Life is not going to be easy after college, and you have to be a hard worker and diligent in order to be successful in the real world.

What lesson have you learned while at Lake Region High School that will help you in the future? I have learned that sometimes life is not always fair. Everything is not going to be perfect in life. You just have to use what you have in life and be thankful.
