Favorite aspect of your school: I love the variety of clubs and extracurriculars available for students. There's something for everyone.

If you have been involved in community service projects, which has been most rewarding and why? I participated in a community service project through my church called Reparation Project where we painted and repaired schools, built a playground at the YMCA, raked yards, organized food pantries, and helped out with lots of other projects in the community. I was shocked at how much need there was right here in Appleton, and it was really cool to see how grateful the recipients were.
