Q: Do you have any siblings?

A: I have a sister. She’s a senior. 


Q: What is something that you’ve done that you are proudest of?

A: I’m happy that I have traveled to a lot of places. I’ve been to different countries, including the Dominican Republic, Belize, Turks and Caicos, Honduras, Roatan and Mexico. I always travel with my family. This happened mostly pre-Covid. Coming up this year, I’m going back to the Dominican Republic and Turks and Caicos. With COVID, we traveled inside the country instead of going abroad. I went to Florida and Colorado during the pandemic.


Q: What have been some of your favorite classes you’ve taken?

A: I love chemistry. That was one of my favorite classes. I’m also in AP Environmental Science and I love that class.


Q: How does sophomore year compare to freshman year for you? 

A: Honestly, I thought it was easier, only because I hated having an English class both semesters. That was the difference. I don’t have that this year. I think my sophomore year is easier with the courses I am taking; I like them more. 


Q: When did you decide to come back to in-person school? What was it like, the first time in-person at the high school?

A: I went back freshman year pretty much right away. It was kind of just like a nice change. You get to see more people every day.
