Q: What has been your favorite class in high school and why?

A: I just memorize everything, and I’m usually good from that point.

Q: If you could have your pick of service projects, who would you help and how?

A: I would help with YWAM Homes of Hopes in Mexico, because I went down last spring break, and I plan to this upcoming spring break as well. I went to build three houses with 70 other people for families who didn’t have the money themselves to have a home. It really took a part of my heart when I first went down there and experienced how little they all had, yet how happy they all were. It’s something I feel I should serve all the time now.

Q: Where would you like to be in 10 years?

A: Be graduated from college, have a set career as a physical therapist, and possibly be traveling the world in my free time.
