Q: What are you involved in at LHS?
A: I am a student leader in More Than Words, a member of three bands – jazz band, marching band, and after-school band/wind orchestra – and a current varsity member on the fencing team. I’m also a member of the Environmental Action Club.
Q: What are you planning to do after high school?
A: I plan on going to an HBCU in order to undergraduate in either history or political science then eventually go to law school for civil law.
Q: What is one of your biggest accomplishments?
A: My biggest accomplishment as of right now is the number of great friends I’ve made over the years and how they all make me so happy. When I was much younger, I never thought that when I walked into a room the whole class could cheer my name in excitement. While they might overlap in interests, each one is their own person and offer me such new experiences
Q: What makes you who you are?
A: My pride in myself and my background, whether it’s my cultural or ethnic heritage or my personal experiences, are the foundation for who I am. My personal pursuit of happiness and improvement is what allows me to adapt and not stay stagnant as a person.
Q: What do you feel strongly about?
A: I believe that a person should work towards bettering themselves in some way, big or small every day and that the effort put into themselves, their problems, or their surroundings is what really matters when judging someone’s character.
