What is the memory of high school you will never forget: Playing in a tournament in Chicago with my volleyball team. It was such an amazing experience to be able to travel to a new city alongside my teammates. I will never forget the memories I made on that trip and how proud our coaches and families were of us after winning all of our games on the first day of the competition.
Which teacher had the biggest impact on you and why: My English teacher, Mrs. Shall, had the biggest impact on me. She was always there to offer advice or a pair of listening ears when I needed it. She pushed me to be the best student I could be and always encouraged me to continue my learning, either through writing or reading, outside of the classroom.
