My favorite space on campus is the new Hoffman Learning Commons, because it provides me with a good, quiet place to do homework or study. The Learning Commons has an excellent learning environment that is very helpful.

Favorite Subject
My favorite subject in school is History. I especially like history class because we get to explore many things that can be forgotten through time. I also like to learn about what came before us. Learning about the past is important because without the past there wouldn't be a future.

Favorite School Activity
My favorite school activity is sports. From fall to spring, I like to compete on teams with all of my friends. I love building teamwork with teammates, and whether we win or lose, we always have fun.

Favorite School Tradition
My favorite school tradition is Congé. I like Congé because it is a day of reward for all of the hard work we have done the whole year. Congé is a fun time to relax and enjoy yourself.

Best Part of Your Day
My favorite part of the day is lunch and recess. I can always rely on lunch/recess to give me a break from classes. Lunch/recess is fun because I can socialize with friends and have fun playing basketball. Lunch and recess power me through the end of my day, and I always look forward to taking that break.

Favorite School Project
I am proud of my influential person portrait and reflection. In this project, you choose someone who is influential to you, you paint a portrait of them and write a short reflection on what he/she did and why they inspire you. I am proud of this project because I combined two classes I like, Art and English, into one project and wrote a deep reflection along with a great painting.

Benefits of Single-Sex Classes, Co-ed Community
I have benefited from a single-sex school because everyone is similar in a way, and most people have the same interests. Also, at an all-boys school, we have formed a brotherhood where everyone is familiar with each other. However, with the girls school, we still get fun things such as dances, co-ed electives, and other activities. Having both a single-sex and co-ed community benefits me because I still build social skills with both genders, but I also can make many friends with people who have the same interests as me.

Future Career Path/Fields of Interest
It is very early for me to start thinking about this, but I can see myself pursuing medical school. Ever since I was very little, I always wanted to be a doctor. Specifically, a pediatrician. Another career I may be interested in is a lawyer. My family has many lawyers in it, and being able to go to court and argue or defend a company or someone would be very fun and interesting.
