What’s your favorite high school memory?
There isn’t a memory but a reflection. Looking at who I have become over four years, looking at how my friends and peers gave developed over four years, I’m proud. Everyone has become so diverse and unique while in high school, and I cherish the fact I have gotten to know them and grow close while we all find out how we want to leave a mark in the world.

What’s something you hope to be remembered for?
I think I don’t want to seek remembrance, I just hope that I have made a big enough impact on others that I am remembered.

What’s your favorite quote?
“You get out what you put in.” Mr. Becker when he taught Creative Writing. At Penn, this is so true. I love that my hard work as paid off.

The administration for putting up with students day in and day out.
The freshman/sophomore/juniors in ROTC, thanks for letting me lead you.
