What is your favorite memory from High School?

I have loved high school, and I have a lot of great memories, but one of the best was during my Sophomore year. At that time I was on the JV lacrosse team, and the previous season, we failed to win a single game.

In the first game of my Sophomore year, we played Lincoln, our rivals. At the half, we were down 3-1. In the second half, we shut them out and ended up winning 4-3. It was the first win of my lacrosse career, and, certainly, a memorable one.

What is your dream job?

I want to be an attorney, and possibly move into politics at some point. Working for the Supreme Court, or as a political strategist of some sort could very well be something I would enjoy.

What are your post-graduation plans?

I plan on attending Duke University to study history and political science and then go to law school. I  am undecided on the type of law I would like to study, but I have thought about constitutional law.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

I’d like to see myself working for a major law firm.

What’re you watching on Netflix right now?

I haven’t really had a lot of time to watch Netflix recently, but I was starting to get into Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.

Dream vacation location?


What is one cause you’re really passionate about?

I believe wholeheartedly in the Second Amendment.
