I'm not entirely sure yet, but I think I want to go into some sort of science or math field. If I can get a novel-writing career to take off, that's even better.
FAVORITE MEMORY FROM HIGH SCHOOL
The class trip between junior and senior year. It was chock-full of all kinds of craziness: buses breaking down multiple times, completely skipping lunch one day, getting back to our hotel at 3 a.m. and leaving at 6 that same morning. But that just makes it more fun in hindsight.
THE TEACHER WHO MADE A DIFFERENCE
My mother, LaNell Crook, who is currently the principal of the Baptist Preparatory Lower School. She taught me to be an avid reader from an early age, which has shaped much of who I am as both a student and a person.
