Where are you from?

Ellensburg, Washington.

Favorite teacher of all time and why?

Favorite teacher is Mr. C-G because he always knew when something was up; and was, and is, always there for me. Just an all around great guy!

Favorite book/author:

“City of Bones” series.

Current/past activities, volunteer work and accomplishments:

Volleyball, youth group volunteer. Growing from my past is my biggest accomplishment.

What do you want to do after high school?

Pursue a career in forensic psychology. I have already started at Riverland and after that I’m going to the University of Minnesota.

What advice would you give to younger students in Albert Lea?

Don’t skip, don’t not care, put homework first! My worst mistake ever was not showing up and not doing my work in ninth grade. I would not show up or just not care and I am paying for it my senior year, which hasn’t been fun. If I could go back and study more, I would. Study hard, and never give up!
