What was your senior experience like?

A Best Friend Session with friends Kyra and Paul.

What do you like to do when you are not in class? Play a sport? Chess team? Choir? Volunteer? What do you LOVE to do?

I am the captain of both of the volleyball and track and field teams at MHS. I'm the Vice President of Student Leadership, a member of student council, a member of Best Buddies, and I'm also apart of Peer Mentoring.

Who inspires you most and Why?

I'm most inspired by my parents. They push through any obstacles on their way and are the kindest people I know. Both my mom and dad have such big hearts. They have shaped me to become the person I am today.

If you could sit down and share a meal with anyone (deceased or alive, famous or not) who would it be and why?

I would love to share a meal with my Grandfather. I never got to meet him. He died before I was born. My mom always says how great of a man he was and how much I would've loved him. I wish I had the chance to meet him.

Tell me about an experience that has shaped your life and how it has changed you.

This is very recent, but my great aunt who I am very close with has been fighting breast cancer for about 7 years. She has always been a fighter, but we just found out her time is coming to an end. We weren't expecting this at all. My family has had to come to terms with everything and learn to appreciate life because you never know when it's going to end.

If you could travel anywhere in the world, or even spend a month living in another country, where would it be and why?

I would love to go to Italy again. It is one of the most amazing countries I have ever been to. I would also love to go to Australia. It has always been a dream of mine.

What advice would you give to incoming Freshman asking you about high school?

Enjoy it. Don't hold back and take any opportunities that come your way. Make memories and friends that will last a lifetime.

Anything else that I missed that you would like to tell me about you?

Just like you, I'm an Aquarius!! I love the beach and fall.

[I love you Kyra, my fellow Aquarian!!]
