What is your favorite class? KM. My favorite class is photography because I love playing around with my camera and taking pictures.

What is your toughest class? KM. My toughest class is probably physics, because it takes complex understanding, and a lot of time to understand the concepts.

How do you balance your class work and your extracurricular activities? KM. I use my free periods in school to my advantage, and finish most of my schoolwork before I even get home.

What is the biggest challenge high school students face today? KM. I believe that the biggest problem that high school students face is learning to accept others. People judge others way too often without even really knowing them.

Who has inspired you educationally? KM. My father has probably been my biggest inspiration. He always pushes me to do my best in school, and he and I are very alike in our “strong” points. He is very smart and I hope to be just like him some day!
