WHAT HAS BEEN THE HARDEST PART OF THE LAST YEAR OF SCHOOL and THE MOST REWARDING: The most challenging thing had to be not being able to see my teachers and friends on a daily basis any more since we only go in person a few days a week now. The most rewarding has probably been to get through the last year of high school with the same determination to keep my grades high as I had beginning 9th grade whilst being able to accomplish that goal.
WHAT HAVE YOU LEARNED ABOUT YOURSELF DURING THE PANDEMIC/HOW HAVE YOU CHANGED: I’ve come to understand that life can throw curveballs you never would have expected and in order to move past these newfound obstacles brought on by the pandemic, I’ve had to learn patience with others but especially with myself.
WHAT IS THE MEMORY OF SCHOOL YOU WILL NEVER FORGET: When I got to step out onto the stage during the MS/HS drama production of Into the Woods as Cinderella. So I got to start the show with my little intro solo.
WHAT WILL YOU MISS MOST ABOUT HIGH SCHOOL: I will miss the free time I have now to do hobbies like paint and as well as my friends that I get to see every week because they’re supported me for so long and helped me become the person I am today.
WHAT’S IN YOUR MUSIC PLAYER: Lots of ’50s, MCR, late 2000s/early 2010s pop hits, Fall Out Boy, Imagine Dragons, and oldies country music.
FAVORITE BOOK OR AUTHOR: Either “The House of Hades” by Rick Riordan or “An Abundance” of Katherines by John Green
BEST PART ABOUT GRADUATING: Being able to be more independent and see more of the world in college.
WHO OR WHAT INSPIRES YOU: Idina Menzel is my celebrity idol because she is so resilient and pushes herself to be the best she can be in every role she plays in musicals or movies. My mom inspires me to be genuine, kind, and giving as well as hardworking.
