Career goal:

I'd like to pursue law or politics or maybe some mixture of the two. I also have a high interest in becoming a teacher.

Favorite memory from high school:

Roaming around the Northeast with all of my best friends — from Middlebury, Connecticut to Washington — during a college trip in the beautiful snow. We had no worries and no stress! We were just a bunch of young kids enjoying life.

Tell us about the teacher, coach or administrator who made a difference in your life:

My Dean of Student Life Mrs. Castleberry has been indescribably incredible in helping me through these past four years. The couch in her office has always been a safe space for everything from a good laugh to panic attacks. She's never dismissed me and has always treated me as more than just one of 500 students. She treated me like a real human being, and I'll never forget that.
