Schools that you have been accepted to: University of Maine at Orono.

What is your favorite class? My favorite class is math. I love working with numbers. It’s just like playing another game.

What is your toughest class? My toughest class is English. I don’t really like words and vocabulary.

How do you balance your class work and your extracurricular activities? During the first few years of school, it was definitely a lot harder to balance my classes and other activities. I realized using my open campuses and study halls as ways to get all of my studying and homework done. It is just a matter of using every moment of your time wisely.

What is the biggest challenge high school students’ face today? The biggest challenge in a high school student’s life is definitely peer pressure. Peer pressure happens everyday. Peer pressure could be a good thing with doing better than your best friend in a class, but it can also be bad.

Who has inspired you educationally? The person who inspired me educationally would definitely be my biology teacher, Ms. O’Donnell. She helped me recognize what I really wanted to do with my life. I hope I can achieve that goal and be successful in the next couple of years after graduating.
