What is your favorite class? My favorite class is Math. I love knowing how to do a problem, working it out and getting the right answer in the end.
What is your toughest class? My toughest class is English. I struggle with writing essays. It’s hard putting my thoughts into words.
How do you balance your class work and your extracurricular activities? It’s really hard to balance work, school, (taking care of) Aiden and social activities. I wouldn’t be able to do it without the support of my family. They watch Aiden for me when I go to work and try to help me out when I am behind in schoolwork.
What is the biggest challenge high school students face today? I think the most challenging thing is finding time to do everything and prioritizing things.
Who has inspired you educationally, and why? My son, Aiden. Before I had him, I was not motivated to do my schoolwork. After I found out I was pregnant, he gave me the motivation to do well in school and be able to go to college and make a better life for us.
