Q. What would you say your biggest challenge has been so far?
A. The biggest challenge I have faced so far is balancing my rigorous academic schedule in addition to my extracurricular activities (swimming, soccer, etc.) and a part-time job. It’s been quite a challenge especially when part of my focus and goal this year is to enjoy the experience of being a senior in high school.

Q. Do you have any advice for your peers?
A. Never be afraid to ask for help. It demonstrates confidence and personal strength, not weakness.
