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

A: Anatomy. Everything about that class I find very interesting to learn. And Mrs. Duel is funny.

Q: How do you prepare for a big test?

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.

A: I honestly don’t know how to use Facebook.

Q: What’s the best advice a teacher, coach or parent has ever given you?

A:  “You’ve got a lot to offer people. Don’t be afraid to show it.”

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.
