Student activities, hobbies: I enjoy spending time with my friends, gaming and movies. I’ve helped with fundraising for my class since freshman year. I also traveled to Italy my sophomore year with a school trip.

What do you like most about school? I love seeing my friends, having a few laughs. I also love the teachers.

What is your biggest challenge in school? Physics. Not procrastinating

What is your favorite subject? Humanities is my favorite subject. Mr. Nye and Mrs. Burnette can be fun teachers one moment and then be really strict, which helps me stay on task. I enjoy their teaching style and the material is interesting to me.

If you could change one thing about school, what would it be? I would change the class specific academies. When I was a freshman, the academy you picked was mixed with all grade levels. This was a great way to get to know the upperclassmen and maybe make friends with a few of them.

What characteristics do you believe a good teacher should possess? The teacher needs to have a good sense of humor. They should be able to be strict when needed, but also be mindful of a student’s feelings. I like to be able to relate to them as people.

What goals did you hope to achieve during your high school days? My goal for high school was simply “Try your hardest.”

What do you hope to do in the future in terms of career, and why are you headed in that direction? I hope to get accepted into Central Maine Community College for computer forensics and network security. I have been surrounded by computers my entire life and always wanted to know how to make or do something amazing with them.

What do you think it will take to be successful in the future? A good attitude, and a fierce determination. Supportive friends and family never hurts either.

What lesson have you learned while at Lake Region High School that will help you in the future? Lake Region has taught me about taking responsibility for my actions or failures. They have solidified my will to try as hard as I can.
