Describe yourself in three words: Hard-working, determined, and blessed.

What is your favorite thing to do outside school? I love spending time outdoors. This includes playing pick-up basketball games with my little brothers, biking, running, and walking my dogs at the trail.

Favorite high school memory? My favorite high school memory is traveling to Europe with the Latin Club. I had the opportunity to explore new places and cultures with one of my closest friends. I had the chance to see the Colosseum, Pompeii, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the Vatican, the Partheon, the Trevi Fountain, and Montserrat. It was such an amazing experience, and I hope to go back to Europe one day.

Most people would be surprised to know ...: I was a member of Central's first girls' cross country team to qualify for state.

What do you hope to do as a career? I hope to become a veterinarian. Ever since I was little, I dreamed of becoming a vet. I am very excited to pursue my dream through the Pre-Vet program at Findlay.

What is the biggest issue facing teenagers today? I believe that the biggest issue facing teens today is the pressure to conform to the standards and expectations of others. Many teens suppress their individuality in order to be accepted by others. Instead, teenagers should learn to accept others and not be afraid to be themselves.
