The school dances, going to football games, and spending time with my friends.


The class and teacher you enjoyed the most:

Power Strength and Mrs. Gaines because she is always pushing me to be my best and is always there when I need her. She helped me so much during high school with everything. She taught me so much and she helped me be more confident in myself and believe that I could do anything.


After High School Plans:

I plan to go to college for athletic training and physical therapy. I want to play college softball but I am undecided.

My goal is to be a physical therapist somewhere and help people feel better.


The person or people I admire the most:

I admire my parents the most because they are hard-working and always there for me no matter what. They make sure I am always pushing myself and they push me to be the best I can be. They always believe in me and encourage me to go outside my comfort zone. They have always been there for me and will always be there for me.


Advice you would give to  underclassmen:

Keep up on your school work so you don’t get behind and make the most out of your high school years because it goes by fast.
