Favorite School Activity
I love playing basketball with my friends. My friends and I are very competitive when we play so I'm never bored. Our school team is pretty good, and we ended up going 17-1 in our school season. We won the championship as well!

Favorite School Tradition
The Alumni Basketball Game is always a fun time. The alumni game is when the eighth graders and the alumni play each other. I love to see the competitiveness and cool plays both teams bring to the game.

Favorite Space on Campus
The English classroom is so free and very easy to thrive in. The quiet environment and soft couches makes it easy to concentrate and do work at a fast rate. I also love the cool couch cushions we are allowed the sit on. They are so comfortable.

Best Part of Your Day
The best part of my day is the morning. The feeling of getting in another good day of hard work and productiveness is quite fulfilling. And when I get to class early enough, I can even get help from teachers if I need it.

Favorite School Project
I loved my mission project from fourth grade. I was able to build it using materials from arts and crafts stores. I made a mosaic representation of it, and it looked really beautiful. I am most proud of it because it took me three weeks to finish.

Benefits of Single-Sex Classes, Coed Community
I've learned how to interact with girls early on and how to be around the opposite sex. But if I feel insecure, I alway have dependable friends to fall back on. I am proud to go to a school that allows so many coed activities and opportunities.

Future Career Path/Fields of Interest
I see myself being a med student. My mom is a nurse, and my sister is currently in med school. I find the human body to be interesting. The complex build of our body is really cool and unique in so many ways. I can't wait to continue studying the wonderful work of nature.
