Why is it important to get involved and make a difference in high school?

The reason why I think it’s important to get involved in school events and always try to make a difference at school is because it builds character and it represents the person one is.

Who is a mentor or role model who inspire you & why?

The role models who inspired me during my high school years would be Mr. Nistas who is my photo teacher, Mr. Golden who was my chemistry teacher, and last but not least, Ms. Kim who was my geometry teacher.

If you knew me better you’d know I…

I am person who believes in trying, doesn’t see failure as something bad but as motivation to try harder and always give my best.

What are your dreams for your future?

My dreams for the future are to attend the University of Arizona, become a lawyer, and help my family financially. Since I was a little girl my mom has always taken care of me and protected me and now it’s my turn to take care of her.

What is the bravest thing you have ever done?

The bravest thing I have ever done would be not being afraid to speak out or have a normal conversation with someone. I moved to the United States 5 years ago and I have always been afraid of people judging me for my accent but I proposed myself to let myself be free from that fear. 

What do you love about Flowing Wells?

The reason why I love Flowing Wells is because I can be my own person, I don’t have to pretend to be someone I’m not but myself. The teachers, they have always tried their best to help me build my character.

Who has been the most influential teacher in your career and why?

My most influential teacher would be my photo teacher, Mr. Nistas, he has been my teacher and advisor for four years now. He has taught me life is not always easy but to never give up and always give my best.

How long have you attended Flowing Wells?

I have been attending Flowing Wells since I was a freshman.

What legacy do you want to leave here at Flowing Wells?

The legacy I want to leave after high school is a representation for people to be proactive and to not be afraid of being who they are and motivate themselves to always be the best version of themselves. And to always smile because you never know when someone needs a smile.
