What extracurricular activities have you been involved with during high school? Throughout high school, I have been involved in student government, Junior Leadership through The Chamber of Manitowoc County, Boomerang, Fact, National Honor Society, Lights Leaders, Advisory Recreational Board, server at St. Peter the Fisherman, figure skating through the Manitowoc County Figure Skating Club, cross country, and track and field.

What is one academic accomplishment about which you feel particularly good? Being able to be involved in so many different things while still keeping up with all my school work. 

Which class or extracurricular activity influenced your decision regarding the career you plan to pursue? My chemistry, physics and advanced chemistry classes. Throughout middle school, science was never a class I really enjoyed, but my views changed when I entered these high school classes. My teacher had a large part in my choice, as she knew how to make the material we learned enjoyable and easy to learn. 

What advice do you have for those just starting their high school career? Don’t take anything for granted; go to that basketball game, go to that musical. High school is only four years long — make the best of it while you are still there. 

What are your plans after high school? I plan to attend Marquette University, where I will major in chemistry. After graduation, I would like to go to dental school and become a pediatric dentist.
