What are your post-high school plans?

I will be attending University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, and majoring in mechanical engineering.

What is the most important thing you learned in high school?

The most important thing I learned in high school was how to balance what I should’ve been doing with what I wanted to do.

What is your favorite high school memory?

The Class of 2018 senior prank was crazy fun.

What was your favorite class or learning experience?

I had too many great teachers and classes to be able to name one.

Share your best advice for incoming freshmen:

Everyone knows that school is important, but don’t forget to live a little, and try some things you might not usually do. Learn how to balance enjoying the moment while setting up your future.

What or who do you acknowledge for your academic success, and ranking in the top 2 percent of your senior class?

Neha Mittal. Over the last four years of high school I’ve studied countless hours with Neha. I always joked with her that if I had the chance, I would mention her as part of the reason why I am here today. High school wouldn’t have been nearly as fun without her.

What life lessons or observations have you gained about yourself, and the world, during the 2020-21 school year?

In general, I try not to let the little things bother me. I have also learned to truly embrace making the best of a tough situation.
