Who has been your favorite teacher, and why?

My favorite teacher has been Coach Perry, and even though I did not have him as a teacher this year I would always go by his room and he would light up my day with anything he would say. He has been a great support and has helped me so much this year and I cannot thank him enough for the amazing impact him and his family have made in my life.

Who in your life deserves a shout out for helping you make it this far?

Marcus Porter, Shelby McNamara, and Jeremy Small. The amount of time and patiance they have put in to make sure I am who I am today is unbelievable. They have been my support system ever since I can remember and have brought to me the available resources in order for me to be successful.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

I see myself being successful with my own salons offering job opportunities to those who love doing what I love doing.

What is your advice for incoming freshmen?

Do not let anyone tell you that you can't because you can and never be afraid of trying new things. High School will get real and you should take every single opportunity that is offered for you to be successful. DO NOT PROCRASTINATE. Everything you do will reflect on your future. Get involved and get your name out there, scholarship committees would love to see all of your accomplishments and community service on your applications.
