Schools that you have or will apply to: Elmira College, Elizabethtown College, Susquehanna University, Stetson University, University of Southern Maine, Florida Southern College, Merrimack College, New England College, University of Maine and Colby-Sawyer College.

Schools that you have been accepted to: I’ve been accepted everywhere that I’ve applied.

What is your favorite class? My favorite class is Physics because you work with numbers to figure out why things that happen in your life daily.

What is your toughest class? Physics is also my toughest class because some of the concepts are very abstract.

How do you balance your class work and your extracurricular activities? Time management really is the most important thing. You have to know what you have to do and when you’re going to have time to do it. Also, always make time for yourself to just relax.

What is the biggest challenge high school students face today? I think the biggest challenge high school students face today is ourselves. We get in our own way a lot of the time. We get down on ourselves unnecessarily and get distracted by social media.

Who has inspired you educationally? Every teacher and every coach I have had up until this point. Each person was always passionate about what they did and I want to further my education to find the thing I’m going to be passionate about.
