What is the memory of high school you will never forget: I’ll never forget field days. When every grade got together and played different games like tug of war or sack races.

Which teacher had the biggest impact on you and why: One teacher who had a big impact on me was my business teacher and FBLA advisor Mrs. Handy. She always cares about me and gave me good advice. Mrs. Handy always knew, and made me aware of the fact, that I’m much more capable of doing things than I let myself believe. She always pushed me to do to the best of my ability. She helped me to discover myself as a student.
