What are your plans after graduating from Lake Fenton High School in 2020?
I would like to study biology at the Lyman Briggs College at Michigan State University.
What type of career excites you the most?
It would have to be one that would allow me to work with animals. I would be thrilled to work with just about any kind of creature … except for spiders.
How to you plan to use your talents in art in your future?
I have always been an artist and I always will be. Whether it is creating elaborate art projects or just compiling doodles in a sketchbook, I will always love art.
How did you get the ideas for the murals at school?
It was a collaboration with my parents for the middle school mural, and the art teacher for the high school mural. I believe that both of these murals related to our school spirit but also encompassed everyone in some way.
What advice do you have for younger people about to enter high school?
I would advise them to speak up and ask questions when they don’t understand something. Don’t be afraid to go and talk to your teachers. If you ask for help, they will be willing to work with you and you will thrive in your classes.
If you could be any historical figure, who would it be and why?
I would be Peter the Apostle. Being Peter would be amazing because that would mean I would literally be with Jesus.
What do you look most forward to when you first wake up in the morning?
I look most forward to getting to school early to see my friends before our school day starts.
What is the best thing your parents or grandparents ever taught you?
The greatest thing my parents taught me was to always assume the best of people.
