Which elementary and middle school did you attend?

Columbus Christian School

What’s your favorite class or part of the school day and why?

English class with my teacher Mrs. Taylor because we always seem to have a good laugh, especially when we need it most.

In which extracurricular activities do you participate?

Choir and volleyball

When you’re not in school, what’s your favorite place to be and why?

I love to be at home with my dogs and my sister to just relax downstairs. I enjoy this because I never get to spend much time with my sister.

What has been your greatest high school memory so far and why?

My greatest high school memory would have to be winning a national champion-ship with my volleyball team in 2016.

What are you looking forward to after graduation?

To go to college and to further with my education, mostly to lead me to a better job

Who in your life has inspired you or whom do you look up to and why?

I am inspired by my mom and dad because they have always been there for me and my sister; they drove us around when we needed somewhere to be. We always confide in them and they always have the right words to say or something funny to make us laugh.

What is the most important thing you’ve learned during, or from, high school?

I have learned to always — and I mean ALWAYS — study for tests and do your homework. Don’t fall behind.

Draw a picture, write a poem or create something that represents you. It can be anything you choose.

Roses are red, violets are blue, I suggest you come to CCS too! I really hate to be set apart, but this school has really warmed my heart.
