What motivates you to come to school?

I love high school. I have amazing friends and teachers, and I enjoy learning and participating in all of the activities our school has to offer. As a senior, I am making sure to cherish every day I have with my family here at Stroudsburg.

What is your goal for this year?

I want to make the best of each day that I’m in Stroudsburg, and attend as many sporting/musical events as possible. The more that we support each other, the more memories we make before graduation.

If you could have a superpower, what would it be?

I’d love to fly!! Traveling Europe is a dream of mine, and it would make the trip a lot easier!!

What is your favorite thing about SHS?

We have so many traditions that are unique to SHS, an example being the Homecoming floats. This gives many different people an opportunity to spend time together and grow closer as a class.

What is something that most people may not know about you?

If you talk to my close friends, I talk about this way too much; I love ice cream. Chocolate, coffee, caramel, avocado, pistachio — you name it.

What activities or hobbies do you enjoy outside of school?

I love being by the beach and boating with my family. Most of the time, I’m playing tennis or spending time with my family and friends. I also enjoy watching football, cooking, Greek dancing, and being outside.

What qualities do you value in people?

My friends and I are great at knowing how to make each other laugh. I surround myself with people who I trust and care about, as well as make me smile throughout the day.

What is something that you have learned in your childhood that has stuck with you?

Hard work will always pay off in the end. If you have the right intentions in mind, dedication and commitment will get you where you want to be in the long run.

Who do you consider your biggest role model, and why?

I can’t pick one person, so I’ll go with both my parents and sister. They’re each amazing people that have taught me what it means to be a good person and how to grow as an individual. These three people are very talented, and I continue to learn from them every day.
