Favorite class: Foods, for obvious reasons. Who doesn’t like food?

Least-favorite class: AP physics class, because of how difficult it was at times.

Favorite teacher: My English 4 teacher, Jennifer Utecht, because of how understanding and considerate she was this year to us students.

What will you do after high school? I have committed to Augustana College in Rock Island and I will be majoring in accounting.

What is something you learned in high school that you think you’ll never use? Definitely everything I learned in all of my science classes, because I won’t need to use any of that knowledge as an accountant.

If you could change one thing about your school, what would it be? I would have a longer lunch period and make it open for students to get food outside of school, because the school food isn’t the best.

What does it take to be a successful high school student? All you have to do is pay attention, do your homework, and ask for help if you need it.

How would you describe your group of friends? Funny, because we’re just always laughing.

Who is your best friend? My girlfriend Alexis. She always is there for me when I need her.

What do you do in your free time? Lifting, fishing, and watching movies.

What kind of music are you listening to? All types of music. I don’t really have “a type.”

If you could go anywhere in the world for free, where would it be? Italy, because of all the history that the country has within it.

What is your favorite childhood memory? My vacation to Florida with my family.

What is the best way to cheer you up? Feed me.

What is your life’s philosophy? Don’t let other people dictate your life.

What would you do if you received $1 billion? I would give people that I’m close to $1 million each. I would travel the world and not have to work again. I would set a good portion of it in savings and invest 15% of it.
