Q: What is your favorite subject and why?
A: Choir, because I love to sing and dance, so it is the best way I meet my closest friends and I have a lot of fun in the class and still be able to do something I love.
Q: Who has been your most influential teacher?
A: I would say my most influential teacher this year would be Mr. (Jason) Marer. He teaches economics and he gives great advice and (is) all-around a great teacher to have. This is one of my favorite classes.
Q: What have you been involved in during high school?
A: Well, I just moved (back) to Fishers this summer, so I haven’t gotten too much involved as I would like, but like I said, choir makes me involved and has made the transition that much easier.
Q: Why did you choose to pursue engineering?
A: I mainly want to go into mechanical engineering, but I can always change my mind. That said, I love fixing things and working on cars, so I think this major can accommodate my likes and dislikes.
Q: What’s your dream job?
A: I’m not sure what my dream job is just yet. However, I would love to work at a car manufacturing company like General Motors or Ford.
Q: Do you have any advice for younger students?
A: My advice for younger students would be to get involved and meet as many people as you can. You never know what connections you make in high school, and they can last a long time if you meet the right people. Also, be in the moment. Don’t let your grades make you cut off from talking to people.
Q: Is there anything else you’d like the community to know about you?
A: I did just get Student of the Month in November. Just moving here in my senior year of high school, I would say I have adjusted very well.
