〉What is one piece of advice you would give an incoming freshman?

To live without regrets. Sometimes I feel like I didn’t do enough or try enough. Things could have gone better if I would have put more effort into them.

〉If you were a superhero, which one would you be and why?

Superman. He can basically do whatever, and I think that level of freedom and that level of ability could allow me to be whoever I want.

〉What are you most excited about after graduation?

I’m excited about a lot of things in life. Now I have to make my own decisions, and I will be able to succeed or mess up because of me, not anyone else.

〉Who inspires you the most and why?

I don’t really have people I look up to for inspiration or anything. It just doesn’t make sense for me to look up to someone or be inspired by them.

〉What’s been your favorite high school memory?

The senior sunrise where I was at a pond watching ducks.
