What inspires you?
I am inspired by my dad because he has taught me to go after my dreams, not let any obstacles stop me from achieving my goal and to never settle for less.
What is your favorite subject in school, and why?
My favorite subject in school is history because there is an endless supply of information to learn about our predecessors, how they behaved, controlled their society and how that has affected how we run the world and society today.
If you had the power to change one thing in the world, what would it be?
If I had the power to change anything in the world, it would be making sure every child is fed and has a safe place to stay because no child should ever have to go to bed hungry and they should at least have a safe place to stay because those are vital things one needs to survive, especially a child.
If you could go anywhere, where would you go?
If I could go anywhere, I would go to Europe and explore everything it has to offer.

What is your dream job?
My dream job is to be a partner at a law firm or a world-renowned neurosurgeon.
If you were stuck on a deserted island, what three things could you not
live without?
If I were stuck on a deserted island, three things I could not live without would be food that includes water, an endless supply of books and music.
Favorite book:
My favorite book is The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald because it focuses on the “American dream,” which is an idea everyone strives and dreams of making come true.
What do you want to do after high school?
After high school I want to go to the four-year university of my dreams such as Harvard or Stanford.
Something that makes you smile:
Something that makes me smile is getting good grades and seeing that my hard work paid off.
