Q&A:

Q: If you could create your own high school course what would you call it and what would you teach?

A: It would be called “well rounded” and it would integrate core classes like history and science with music/art and different cultures.

 

Q: Describe a time you turned a negative situation into a positive one, or got something positive out of it?

A: I’ve experienced a lot of loss in my life, particularly my freshman year because five members of my family passed away and I moved three times with different family members. I could’ve acted out harshly with everything that was going on, but I decided to see the little good things that were going on and focused on what I needed to be better emotionally and mentally, and with the help from others, I focused on being constructive with my time.

 

Q: Name three things you would like to accomplish by age 30.

A: Graduate college with a double major, backpack Spain and get a nice job.

 

Q: If you could spend one year abroad, where would you go and why?

A: I’d go to Scotland because it is beautiful, part of my heritage is from there, and for history.

 

Q: What would you tell a freshman who wants to make the most of his/her high school experience?

A: I’d tell them to not get too caught up in their social or academic life. They need to find a balance that works for them, and that they should get involved with the different activities/sports/clubs their high school offers.
