What is the memory of high school you will never forget: I will never forget the day we gave this big presentation in my Marketing and Management class. We had worked on an ad campaign for months and we were finally presenting it. I was so nervous that something was going to go wrong. We had some technical difficulties because we were presenting our campaign virtually.

After a few minutes of waiting, our presentation finally worked. I didn’t know how to make the situation better, so I just laughed, apologized for the delay, and continued on with the presentation. I realized that day that no matter how much you worry about something you can only work with what you have. I also learned that laughing can make any tense situation a little bit better.

Which teacher had the biggest impact on you and why: Ms. Cheryl Bach had the biggest impact on me. I met her when I was in ninth grade when I had her for World History. Ever since then, I have spent much of my free time in school in her room. Ms. Bach is the kind of person who always makes you feel welcome and accepted. I’m truly honored that I have gotten to spend the last four years getting to know her.

What’s in your music player: “These Two Windows” by Alec Benjamin
