Q: Are you looking forward to college?
A: For me, college is a milestone to be proud of. It represents freedom and the improvement of character and that is what I look forward to. To grow as a person and to communicate with a larger group of people is the next step to become one with society.
Q: What do you want to major in?
A: I plan on receiving a Ph.D. in both Physics and Political Science because both have been a dream of mine since middle school.
Q: Where do you see yourself in five years?
A: I see myself at the end of 2021 as a graduate student helping my university and community become more acceptable.
Q: What do you do besides school?
A: I spend my free time helping those in need in the National Honor Society and debating with others in the Model United Nations. Aside from education, I work as a Brand Representative at Hollister in Newport Centre.
Q: Have you changed since freshman year?
A: I have become more open to my senior class, more enthusiastic and optimistic to those around me with an eager heart.
Q: Which teacher influenced you the most and why?
A: Mr. Eigo and Ms. Zharova have always been my favorites because they spare their own time to speak with the students on a personal level. Students grow as people when they learn from outside of school. Views and opinions of others allow for change.
Q: Any advice for incoming freshmen?
A: Incoming freshmen should not be afraid to interact with one other, with seniors, juniors, and sophomores. They should know that a connection brings them together. Being a Hawks is what unifies us.
Q: What’s your favorite subject?
A: My strongest subject since the beginning of freshman year has been mathematics and it has grown to include physics. These strengths have created a connection that has led me to grow and love both of these subjects.
Q: If you could change one thing about high school what would it be?
A: My biggest regret is not being open enough during my first year at Hudson Catholic. Being closed off during these first years affected my high school experience.
Q: What is something that you will miss from Hudson Catholic?
A: I treasure my friends that have been with me since freshman year. Those who continue to stick with me until now show the values of the Hawk community. I will miss my friends and the relationships I created in Hudson Catholic.
