What is your favorite class? KW. My favorite class is psychology because I love learning the reasons for how and why individuals think and do certain things.

What is your toughest class? KW. My toughest class is physics because the information is presented to me in a way that is difficult for me to understand.

How do you balance your class work and your extracurricular activities? KW. I balance my class work and my extracurricular activities by balancing everything based on priority. I make sure I do everything that needs to be done according to importance. It requires a great deal of sacrifice and commitment.

What is the biggest challenge high school students face today? KW. I believe that the biggest challenge high school students face today is staying disciplined to their studies and falling into the trap of procrastination.

Who has inspired you educationally? KW. My sister has inspired me educationally because I have grown up witnessing her constantly studying and working hard in each of her classes. She is one of the most determined and disciplined people I know and never quits until she gets near perfect results. Whether she knows it or not, she encouraged me to do the very best I could academically.
