Favorite aspect of your school: My cross country team is what makes East feel like a second home to me. I love the bond we have with each other and the friendly, supportive attitude we share - even off-season.

If you have been involved in community service projects, which has been most rewarding and why? I have taken four one-week mission trips through my church, and the trip to Detroit this summer was the most rewarding. Detroit is seen as one of the worst cities in America, but working there and getting to take part in some of the many projects to improve the city helped me realize that it's still an area where people have hope; it shouldn't be written off.
