Q: What grade are you in?

A: I am in 12th grade at Salisbury High School.

Q: What is your favorite subject? Why?

A: My favorite subject is mathematics. All throughout my schooling career, math has come to me naturally and I love “playing around” with numbers. I’m extremely thankful Salisbury brought back a statistics course to its curriculum, as I am currently enrolled in it and I have a strong passion for it. Messing around with data and analyzing it for certain purposes has always been an interest of mine and I’m finally able to explore that interest this year.
