What is your favorite class? Favorite class is English because I really enjoy the teacher and the way she teaches the class.

What is your toughest class? Physics is my toughest class because I am not very good at science and I’m not very interested in science.

How do you balance your class work and your extracurricular activities? I try to take care of my school work during school or I try to finish it up before my extracurriculars, but if I do not have time before, I do it after.

What is the biggest challenge high school students face today? I would say peer pressure. These days, so many students are pressured into doing things they normally wouldn’t do, but they want to fit in with a certain friend group so they do whatever that group does.

Who has inspired you educationally? My auntie Sarah because she is always looking out for my best interest and she shows me that I can do big things, but not without a good education, so she pushes me to work harder.
