I plan to become an aerospace engineer for a major aerospace contractor like Boeing or Lockheed Martin. I hope to help develop a supersonic passenger aircraft and to work on NASA's Artemis program — the mission to Mars.
Favorite memory from high school:
My favorite memory from high school was taking Latin during my freshman and sophomore years. I enjoyed this because the teacher, whom we called Magister (which means teacher in Latin), made it enjoyable to learn a dead language.
Tell us about the teacher, coach or administrator who made a difference in your life:
The teacher who has made the greatest difference in my life has been my band director, Mr. Matt Golladay. He has convinced me that being average is not good enough and that hard work is the most important quality of a person.
