What activities or hobbies do you enjoy out of school?

The hobby I do outside of school is drawing while listening to music. It calms me down when I’m stressed.

 

Where are you from?

I am from East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania.

 

What are your future plans after high school?

I plan on taking a gap year and then going to college for either psychology or anything art-related.

 

Do you speak any other languages than English?

Sadly English is the only language I can speak but I am interested in learning Korean.

 

What is your passion in life? 

My passion in life is helping people whenever they need it and always being a shoulder to cry on whenever my friends need it.

 

What is your greatest strength?

My greatest strength is trying the best I can and working hard every day.

 

When you are old, what do you think children will ask you to tell stories about?

I think they would ask about my high school days and what I did as a teenager.

 

What social stigma does society need to get over?

I think they need to get over the stigma of being stereotypical towards people with mental disabilities (Autism, ADHD, anything on the spectrum) and acting like they’re dumb, even though we are the complete opposite, we are intelligent and just show it in our own ways.

 

What’s something people don’t worry about but really should?

People of different races still get discriminated against and mistreated even though they are also human and have the same rights as everyone else.

 

What’s something people worry about but really shouldn’t?

Getting freaked out about openly LGBTQ+ relationships.

 

How do you judge a person?

I judge people on how effective their actions are and how they truly act when no one is around them.

 

Which countries/places would you like to visit?

I would like to visit Korea, Japan, France, Italy, and Ireland.

 

What is your greatest accomplishment so far?

My greatest accomplishment so far was joining the Community Connection Club and being able to help the community and everyone in it.

 

What was your favorite class in SHS?

My favorite class in SHS is Art Major 4, Ceramics, Psychology, and English.

 

What would you do if you only had 24 hours left to live?

Spend as much time with the people I love and do the things I´ve always wanted to do.

 

What’s the funniest joke you have ever heard?

I don’t really know any jokes but I’ve heard ¨Why couldn’t the bike stand up on its own? It was too tired.¨

 

What movie/show could you never get tired of watching?

The movie I could never get tired of watching is the original Karate Kid franchise or the Scream franchise. The show I can´t get tired of watching is Gotham.

 

What is unique about your personality?

The thing that is unique about my personality is that once you meet me I am very quiet but once I get comfortable around you I act like my social self.

 

What is the most important lesson you have learned?

The most important lesson I learned is to try things you never thought of doing, be adventurous, and try them all even if you´re scared, you´ll never know unless you try it.

 

Who are your favorite teachers and why?

My first favorite teacher is Mrs.Mckain because she motivates me to become a better artist and never give up when I feel like my art is bad.

My second favorite teacher is Mrs. Mazzetti from Middle School because she treated me like her own child and was always there during anything I was going through.

My last favorite teacher is Mrs.Dennis from the Junior High because without her I wouldn’t have met my best friend Brenna and she was there for me when I was sad or stressed.
