What do you like most about school, why? I enjoy Alternative Ed because we are challenged not only academically, but as a person too.

What is your biggest challenge in school? My biggest challenge in school is being around students who have no respect for other beings around them.

What is your favorite subject, and why? My favorite subject is Social Studies because history interests me and Ann Bragdon is awesome.

If you could change one thing about school, what would it be (and why)? I would completely ban social media during school hours, because what is important during high school years are the people around you, and the things you are being taught.

What characteristics do you believe a good teacher should possess? I think a good teacher is willing to learn as well as teach.

What goals did you hope to achieve during your high school days? My goals are based on morals. I plan to be honest, respectful and willing to lend a hand to anyone in need of help.

What do you hope to do in the future in terms of career, and why are you headed in that direction? I hope to continue working at the Village Donut Shop and Bakery, and hopefully one day, own a bakery. I am headed in this direction because I enjoy working in a kitchen and forming new relationships with regulars, who support this business.

What do you think it will take to be successful in the future? I believe that if you are honest, respectful and ambitious success will be easier to achieve in the future.

What lesson have you learned while at Lake Region High School that will help you in the future? I have learned that in everyday life you will have to deal with people who you don’t particularly enjoy being around, but life goes on and you cannot let those people make nor break you.
