What are your strengths and what areas of yourself would you like to improve?
- A strength I would consider is my reliability. If I have something to do, I’ll always get it done, and it’s rare that my work is completed late. And that would lead me to areas of improvement. There are times where I hold off some assignments and completely forget about them until I check Pupilpath. So generally, I would like to try and remember my work, and other memories that I tend to forget.
What are you looking forward to in your senior year at WHSAD?
- I’m looking forward to spending one more year with all my peers and doing as much as I can this year. Passing my classes as well and improving myself as a person.
What are your plans for after high school?
- I plan to attend college, possibly out of state. I haven’t yet decided if I want to live on or off campus, which is why I’m looking at a few colleges close to my mom’s house in Pennsylvania. I’ve looked at colleges here in New York, and one out in Georgia has caught my interest, but I haven’t fully planned out my situation, so right now I’m a little uncertain. Plus, if I do go far from my mother, it would really just be here at home, and I don’t want to leave her by herself. It’s hard to leave the life you’ve known for so long.
What activities have you been involved in during your time at WHSAD and how have these activities helped you grow?
- I have participated in SYEP during the summer of my sophomore year, as well as the ACE mentorship program until March of 2020. We all know what happened that year. Now this year, I stay almost everyday afterschool in Mr. Codio’s classroom. I do use it to get my work done, but I also use it to socialize with my friends to try and make up for lost time. Plus, I don’t really do anything at home, so I might as well stay.
What advice would you give to students in the lower grades?
- Take as much advantage as you can from your high school years, and your years to come. Enjoy the time you get to spend in your environment.
