I would like to be a foreign service officer for the U.S. State Department. I would get to pursue my passion of learning about other cultures while also strengthening bonds between the United States and lots of interesting countries around the world.
FAVORITE MEMORY FROM HIGH SCHOOL
This year at the opening pep rally when I wore a lobster mascot suit. Our opening pep rally theme for our grade was "Surf's Up Seniors," and, obviously, I wanted to be … buttered up for the occasion.
THE TEACHER WHO MADE A DIFFERENCE
My Quiz Bowl coach and AP Human Geography teacher, Mr. Carden, really cultivated my love of other cultures — enough for me to want to dedicate my life to immersing myself in them. I am extremely grateful to him for the passion that he teaches and the genuine care he has for his students.
