Favorite aspect of your school: What I like about school is being involved in sports. It allows me to be part of a team make good friends and good memories. I also like the teachers as they are very supportive of what we as students decide to do with our future.
If you have been involved in community service projects, which has been most rewarding and why? I helped serve breakfast at a homeless shelter during the winter. It was rewarding to me because there are so many people that go without food and I was able to help provide them a meal.
