Describe your senior year in three words. 

Fantastic, Relaxing and Smooth!

What are your plans after graduation? 

My plans after graduation are to attend undergraduate school to pursue a major in biology. I then plan to atten dental school for an additional four years to obtain my official dental license. Afterwards, I plan to join a residency program to further my education in depth to specialize.

Who or what was most helpful or influential to you in your high school career, both in school and outside of school? 

My Heavenly Father was the most influential person to me in my high school career both in school and outside of school.

In my spare time, I... 

Enjoy taking pictures, fixing meals for people, and spending time with my family.

What was your dream job as a kid? Are you still pursuing that same dream? 

My dream job as a a kid was a lawyer but I'm no longer pursing that dream.

I hope to be a person who... 

enjoys educating others of all age groups of their dental care.

What is the most adventorous thing you've done?

I discovered underground caves and tunnels with my sister and long time friends behind my house.

If you had the opportunity to travel anywhere, where you go? Why?

I would travel to New York if I had the opportunity to travel anywhere because it has been a place I have always wanted to go. It is full of life-changing experiences and places that I have always wanted to visit.

My last words to the underclassmen:

  • Don't play around in your first two years of high school because it will show once you get into your junior and/or senior year. I have the privilege of not coming to school my entire senior year because I stayed on my game the first three years of school.
  • Stay out of trouble because once you are labeled, it will be hard for you to get the label off of you. Keep out of drama because people's should not deter you from perfoming to the best of your abilities academically. My 10th grade year was the hardest, but it payed off my senior year. Stay on your grind and never lose faith and continuosly pray.
