Favorite aspect of your school: This year I enjoy my classes and my teachers. Being a senior this year I had the ability to choose some different classes I am very interested in. Plus the teachers and staff are great. I have so many close relationships with the staff that have been built over the years. 
If you have been involved in community service projects, which has been most rewarding and why? My favorite community service project that I did was volunteering to help coach a youth flag football team with a few of my teammates. It allowed me to help teach the younger kids about a sport I am passionate about. I got to make a lot of memories and hopefully was a positive role model to them.
