What school will you be attending in the fall? 
University of Illinois Urbana Champaign.

Psychology on a Pre-Medical track.

What is the most important thing you learned in high school? 
Stressing about the future only distracts you from the present. Live in the moment and stay focused on the task at hand.

What is your favorite high school memory? 
Winning 1st Place in CERT at the HOSA competition

What was your favorite class or learning experience? 
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant Course was the most fun, where I learned valuable healthcare skills

Share your best advice for incoming freshmen. 
Live your best life, take on every opportunity and be the best version of yourself. This is your last chance before adulthood.

What or who do you account for your academic success and ranking in the top 2 percent of your senior class? 
My teachers from Kindergarten through high school have brought me to where I am today. As well as my loving and supporting parents, who have been my sole guide. I can't forget my supporting friends either, who have been with me through this whole journey.

What are you learning about yourself and the world as we collectively face this global pandemic?
The need for real interaction, without a pandemic we take social media for granted and fail to really interact with people in person. But now all I want to do is meet people in person, I am getting bored of social media (but not Tik Tok :-D.)
