The people who were in the drumline section throughout my high school career; they have been another family for me.

What is your best high school memory and why?
During my sophomore year, I received a 2-liter bottle of coke in my APUSH class on my birthday. I later shared that bottle at my lunch table with friends and we toasted using the small ketchup containers. It was the first time I had given a toast.

What is your worst high school memory and why?
Receiving the announcement that school would be closed last year because of the pandemic and everything was getting cancelled.

Which band could play the soundtrack to your high school career and why?
I would have Coldplay play Viva La Vida over and over again because it describes the highs and lows of high school.

I would be working towards my doctorate because schooling will take a while.

Which event, events will you miss the most and why?
I miss recess because I had more breaks back then. I will miss marching band night football games and competitions. There was so much hype and strength around those events.

What is your favorite quote to live by and why?
Psalm 23:4 “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.” (New King James Version) I like this verse because the walking explains that you will have challenges in life, but the Lord will be with me as I fight. Many times, I feel like I want to give up after many all-nighters and driving, but in the end, it will all be worth it. My faith comforts me.
