Who will you remember most in Bangor and why?  

I will remember my friends the most from Bangor, I feel most of us will grow apart and we’ll just live in each other’s memories.  

What is your best high school memory and why?

My best high school memory was my senior prom. I got to spend time with a lot of people I love. 

What is your worst high school memory and why? 

My freshman year I was walking up the bleachers in the gym and my shoe got stuck on something and I almost fell down the bleachers; my heart was beating so fast after that. 

Which band could play the soundtrack to your high school career and why? 

It’s not a band, but I would say that Taylor Swift’s Speak Now album would be the best to describe my high school career, because the album is all over the place. 

If there were a movie made about your high school days, which actor would play your part and why?

I wouldn’t even know who I would want to play me. They would just need to make sure their attitude was the same as mine. 

Who influenced you most during high school and why? 

My biggest influence during high school would probably be my mom because she was always there to tell me I could do better and push me to do my best during high school.  

Describe what you hope your life will be like in ten years. 

I hope that in ten years I’d hope so have things in my life starting to settle down, I would like to have my own hair salon. At that point, I don’t think I would want to be behind the chair doing hair too often. I would just want to do the business side most of the time.  

What is your favorite quote to live by and why? 

My favorite quote to live by is “whatever” because it’s just a good word to get the conversation to move on to the next thing. 

What inspired you to become a part of the cosmetology program? 

My mom didn’t know how to do hair, so I had to learn how to do it on my own. It slowly built into something that I wanted to turn into a career.  

If you were stranded on a desert island what are 3 things, you would take with you?

The first thing I would take is a water filter so I can drink water. The second thing is a how to fly a plane book, and the third thing is a plane, so I don’t have to be stranded on a desert island anymore.  

If you could travel back in time, what would be one memory you would like to relive and why?  

Probably when my little sister was born because she was so little and cute, now she’s big and bratty.
