Where do you plan to attend college and major in, and what are your career plans? I will attend UTD and major in Biochemistry. I do not yet know for sure what I want to do with said degree, but I would like to look at either going into the medical industry or perhaps patent law.

What school activities have you been involved in? I have played violin since my sophomore year, I sang with the choir during freshman and sophomore year, I did various sports such as basketball, flag football, and soccer, and I was in student council for a year as secretary.

What teacher impacted you the most and how? The teacher which impacted me the most was Mr. Timothy Merritt who teaches Omnibus, History, and Economics. I have learned many things from his lectures about the various texts which we read. Whether it was about morality, theology, or even a movie reference (which I may or may not get), I have learned many things which will benefit me for years to come.

What is the most interesting school project/assignment you have done? I have been made to do many school projects during my time here. Probably the most interesting assignment I had to do was a ballad I had to write about a figure in history. I chose King Charles I and wrote a long poem about his trial and execution.

What advice do you have for future high school graduates? The most important thing to keep in mind is that there is always more work to do which can seem never-ending. You should not waste your time but instead study. If you do this, then you will do well. If you don’t, then you will have a much harder time. It is difficult to do, but will surely benefit you.

What is your favorite Bible verse? Philippians 4:4-7 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
