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

I would say don’t let yourself get pressured into things. I think that interests in subjects and organizations should develop naturally and not just because you want to be with your friends. If you want to go somewhere – to a meeting or event that your friends don’t – don’t be afraid to go there alone. It’s your life and you should live it according to what you want to do.

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

I think I’d want to be Spiderman because I think it’s empowering. Most of what he does is with his own body and just to have that range of motion, imagine the tricks you could do as Spiderman. It would be really cool.

〉What are you most excited about after graduation?

It’s kind of cliché, but honestly just meeting new people. I’m going to UT and it’s pretty large. I’m going to meet a lot of people in similar paths as me and people who also have different paths. I think that’s exciting.

〉Who inspires you the most and why?

All of my family inspires me because they are so goal oriented, but my brother [Ray] is someone I’ve been looking up to my whole life. He’s always been a few steps ahead of me because he’s a little bit older than me, but I think it’s really amazing he’s been able to pioneer his own path with basically no advice from anyone else.

〉What’s been your favorite high school memory?

My favorite high school memory was the senior pep rally. I got to see a lot of people that I know, and I haven’t in a long time. I feel like it was a last goodbye because I may not be able to see those people at graduation. It was also really funny because our teachers got to loosen up and they performed a couple of dances. It was definitely memorable.
