Spotlight on Rachel Sroka
Which countries/places would you like to travel to?
I’d do anything to travel to Iceland. I keep seeing photos on Pinterest with all the hot springs and the famous ice cave. It looks like something I’d photograph.
What movie can you watch over and over without getting tired of it?
Definitely Land of the Lost with Will Ferrell. I’ve watched it countless times and it’s still the funniest movie ever.
What values are important to you?
I firmly believe that if you want something, you need to work for it. Nothing in life is free and you don’t deserve anything, unless you have earned it.
What is something that you have learned in your childhood that has stuck with you?
I had this one teacher that would always stand on her desk chair when she wanted us to learn something important. One day the wheels slipped out from under her and she fell and cracked her radius bone. I don’t remember what she was trying to teach us that day, but I do remember to never stand on furniture.
What are your plans after graduation?
As of now, I’d like to go to Penn State for equine vet science to become a large animal vet. But getting into vet school is very difficult, and I might want to change my major in the future. As long as I do something with animals.
Is water wet?
Isn’t there better things to wonder about? Like, what do blind people dream about?
What profession doesn’t get enough credit or respect?
Police officers definitely do not get the credit they deserve. They put their lives on the line every day so we are always safe.
What is your favorite vine?
Probably the one where Kermit and that kid are singing the ABC’s and the kid says cookie monster, so Kermit jumps off the roof. Is that school appropriate?
What activities or hobbies do you enjoy outside of school?
I enjoy riding horses and taking photos of my dog and all my other pets.
What is the funniest word in the English language?
