Q: What college will you attend? What is your intended major and why that major?

A: “I will be at Southwestern University in Georgetown, TX. I’m going to be pre-med, but that’s not technically a major. I’m going to double major in either biology or biochemistry, I haven’t decided yet, and then the other one is going to be feminist studies.”

Q: What extracurriculars have you been involved in throughout high school?

A: “Oh my gosh, so many. I’ve played tennis since middle school. I’m very involved in NHS, HOSA and the healthcare program at the career center. And a lot of clubs and organizations like NHS, Mu Alpha Theta, Interact, StuCo and probably more.”

Q: What was the most challenging aspect about balancing extracurriculars and academics?

A: “The most challenging aspect was probably missing school for a lot of tennis tournaments each year and the make-up work involved with missing school. Having to give 100% in tennis and give 100% in school all the time has been pretty difficult.”

Q: What class was the most challenging for you? Why?

A: “My most challenging class was probably honors Pre-Cal with Ms. Chiles. Not because I didn’t like it; I really enjoyed the class, but it was a lot of content in a very short time. I feel like I really pushed myself in that class to be the best I could be.”

Q: Who has helped you the most throughout these last four years? How have they helped you?

A: “Honestly, my mom has probably helped me the most. She’s always been there for me, she talks me down when she needs to and she proofreads all of my essays. Even if it’s 11 at night, I’ll still knock on her door like ‘Mom, can you read this?’ and she does. She’s just been so supportive throughout everything.” 

Q: What has been the most memorable part of high school?

A: “I feel like the most memorable part of high school has probably been tennis and everything associated with tennis. We’ve taken a couple trips, we went to New York and we went to Galveston a few times, and all of the tournaments and stuff. I had a lot of fun and made a lot of friends, that was definitely a big part of my high school career.”

Q: What advice would you give to your freshman self?

A: “I’d probably tell my freshman self to actively seek help if I need it, that it’s OK to ask for help. Also, to try to live in the moment more.”

Q: What are you most excited about regarding college?

A: “I think I’m most excited about meeting new people and being actively engaged in the college community. I’m really excited that I’m going to a small school where I can get to know everybody and really make a difference.”

Q: Where do you hope to see yourself in 10 years?

A: “In 10 years, I will probably be a resident doctor because I’ll be in college and med school for the next eight, and [then] for the next five or so years. I want to become a pediatric anesthesiologist, so hopefully, fingers crossed, I’ll be a pediatric anesthesiologist resident.”

Q: What would you change about your high school experience?

A: “I would probably change the fact that people couldn’t really be involved in the school because of COVID-19 for a year and a half. I feel like the high school experience would’ve been more of a memorable experience if we had been able to go to school for the whole four years.”
