Favorite aspect of your school: Once the final bell rings school isn't over, there are so many opportunities for students to get involved in athletics, clubs, drama.. etc. Some of which, at least in my experience, have led to some of the greatest high school memories I hold.
Favorite aspect about being involved in school activities: I've always found staying busy is the best way to stay on track and if that can include being with your friends and serving the community then it makes for a pretty rewarding experience.
College or post-high school plans: Attend UW-Madison or Minnesota Twin-Cities for undergraduate education then go on to medical school to become a doctor.

What is your favorite class? Math
Who is your favorite teacher? I like them all
Favorite youth coach: Jim Schmidt - youth soccer coach
What is the best advice one of your coaches has given you? My track and field coach once said, run every race as hard as you possibly can. Ignore your suffering, it's only a weakness of mind. You can't be afraid of the pain, the best athletes thrive in pain. So run as hard as you can. I promise you, you will be okay. You'll pass out before you die anyways. I found that advice to be very influential and it's served me well not only in athletics but life.
Something people would be surprised to know about me is…: I really want to chance to go to Europe and experience their culture, mostly their affinity for soccer, and see different places around the world.
