WHAT IS IT LIKE GRADUATING HIGH SCHOOL IN THE MIDDLE OF A GLOBAL PANDEMIC: It certainly made senioritis more prevalent, adjusting to online deadlines has been the weirdest part. I can still talk with friends online, so the separation hasn’t been too bad for me.

WHAT’S IN YOUR MUSIC PLAYER: I’m a big fan of electronic music like Daft Punk.

BEST PART ABOUT GRADUATING: I’ll get to study really interesting things in college.

WHO OR WHAT INSPIRES YOU: Bruce Lee inspires me with his style and philosophy about flow and adaptability to anything.
