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

A: Anatomy because I’m so fascinated in how the human body works and student senate because I love being involved in the school in a different way other than athletics.

Q: How do you prepare for a big test?

A: Lots of flash cards and highlighting. I color coordinate my notes and my mind remembers the colors, as weird as it sounds.

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

A: Definitely animals. It’s so sad to know that animals are suffering every day because of how humans treat them. I would spread awareness and collect donations to stop animal cruelty.

Q: What does it say under “interests” on your Facebook page?

A: Being with my family (cousins), skiing, being outdoors, playing ball, golf, sprinting, being involved, meeting new people, and baby-sitting (love kids).

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

A: “Lead by example and others will follow, and remember actions speak louder than words” — My daddy

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

A: Happy and successful with a good job. I’d like to surround myself with people I admire and take part in things I love.
