What is your favorite class? Physics, it offers new challenges and insight into how the world really works.

What is your toughest class? Global Government and Economics. I’m horrible with dates.

How do you balance your class work and your extracurricular activities? By staying on top of everything, I typically write down when things are due and then organize them by how much time I need for each assignment.

What is the biggest challenge high school students face today? Staying on track, it’s easier to get discouraged and give up than to work through the hard times and learn from it.

Who has inspired you educationally? Ms. Lucinda Stein. She was my English teacher my sophomore year and she really inspired me to take my education seriously. She pushed me to shoot for the stars and not give up when things get hard. She’s the hardest teacher I’ve ever had and I am forever grateful to her for that.
