Once you graduate high school, what is your college/career plan?
I plan to attend either UNC Asheville to major in Psychology and pursue a career in clinical psychology.
Can you tell us about an experience or project in a class that impacted you and explain why it did?
Last semester, Autumn and I connected due to having the same schedule (arriving during 2nd period and leaving during 5th). This connection has helped me thrive and become more social. She has supported me so much throughout the past several months and I am glad to have her in my life.
Have you held any leadership roles on campus?
I have not taken any leadership roles, however, I was a mentor for a 5th grader and played a leadership role for her.
What obstacles have you overcome during high school that has prepared you for the future?
During high school, I have learned to tackle difficult school assignments that I would usually procrastinate on in the past. I have also learned how to handle difficult social situations in better ways.
How would people describe you? How do you describe yourself?
People would describe me as smart, funny, and softspoken. I believe that this describes me and I would use the same words to describe me.
