What school will you be attending in the fall? 
Northwestern University.


What is the most important thing you learned in high school?
How to learn in a way that is most beneficial for me, not necessarily how everyone else wanted me to.

What is your favorite high school memory? 
Qualifying for state my junior year for wrestling.

What was your favorite class or learning experience?

Share your best advice for incoming freshmen. 
Not everyone learns the same way. Figure out how you learn best and stick to that, no matter what anyone else says.

What or who do you account for your academic success and ranking in the top 2 percent of your senior class? 
I owe a lot of it to my parents. They pushed me to do what they knew I was capable of, even when I didn't think so myself.

What are you learning about yourself and the world as we collectively face this global pandemic?
The world is scared of what it doesn't know, whether it's justified or not.
