 Who would you remember the most in Bangor and why?

The person I am going to remember the most in Bangor is Mr. Reduzzi. He has been my homeroom teacher for two years; I see him every morning. He is going to be hard to forget.

What is your best high school memory and why?

My best high school memory is prom. I had a lot of fun with my friends and the DJ will forever be engraved in my memory. PHOTOBOOF! It’s a little inside joke me and my friends have.

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

The band that could play the soundtrack to my high school career would have to be Big Time Rush because, quite honestly, I was obsessed with them growing up and, now they are back together, perfect timing.

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

If there was a movie made about my high school days, I would want Zendaya to play my part. She is incredibly talented and always plays a teenager.

When you arrive at school in the morning, where is the first place you want to go and why?

When I arrive at school, the first place I go to is the breakfast cart because I rush out the door and never have time to eat breakfast at home.

Where do you predict you will end up in ten years from now and why?

In 10 years, I predict I’ll be living in Philadelphia working as a CPA for a big company because it’s my dream job and I know I’ll make it happen.

Which event or events will you miss the most and why?

The events that I’ll miss the most will be spirit week and football games. It is so fun to dress nicely and cheer for your school.

Run us through your pre-meet good luck rituals.

Before a game, I can get nervous, but my friend taught me that blowing air on your thumb distracts you from the nervousness. I use this trick before anything that makes me anxious.

Being from the Dominican Republic, how has your life changed in Bangor or how has Bangor treated you throughout the years you have been here?

It’s almost impossible to compare Bangor to Dominican Republic. They are complete opposites of each other. For example, in DR i was used to the many beaches, rivers, and beautiful tropical places with no snow all year round while in Bangor it snows a lot in the winter, has no beaches because we literally live in between mountains.

What are some dishes from the Dominican Republic that you could eat repeatedly and recommend?

Some dishes from the Dominican Republic that I would recommend are Pastelon, Yaroa, and Empanadas. These are so good I would definitely eat them every day if I could.

If you could meet any person in the world who would it be and why?

If I could meet any person in the world, it would be Ruth Bader Ginsburg. She was a trailblazing feminist who I looked up to. She inspires many women to go after their dreams and let nothing stop you from achieving your goals.
