Sophomore Savannah Nelson’s favorite quote is, “You have to be willing to get happy about nothing.” Andy Warhol. She loves this quote because it helps her to remember that life is much more enjoyable if you have a positive attitude. In five years, she sees myself going to college, preferably Georgetown University, and becoming a social worker.
A few of Savannha’s hobbies are running, writing, reading, playing piano, and hanging out with friends. Her favorite subject in school is English because she loves to write, read, and learn about literature. She also loves German because learning a new language is exciting. A few things that sets Savannah apart is the she has red hair, she tries to get as much positive energy as she can to make herself and others happy, and she’s a morning person.
If Savannah could meet anyone in history, she would like to talk with Eleanor Roosevelt and talk with her about her life, her trials, and ask her for advice or life lessons.
Sophomore Kent Dominguez’s favorite quote is, “Who’s the more foolish, the fool or the fool who follows him?” - Obi-Wan Kenobi. He likes this quote because it is funny and from one of his favorite movies. In five years, Kent sees himself writing novels for a profession.
Kent’s hobbies are playing video games and playing percussion instruments. His favorite subject in school is percussion ensemble because its fun to create music.
If he could meet anyone in history, Kent would meet Albert Einstein, and he would ask him about how he made his discoveries.
Junior Bethany Irwin’s favorite quote is, “You must be the change you want to see in the world.” – Mahatma Gandhi. This quote is her favorite because she believes that everyone possesses so much good. If you want to see change in this world, you must be the catalyst. Not a single thing can stop you from making a difference. In five years, Bethany sees herself chasing her dreams. Hopefully, that means attending college and exploring the world. She wants to be helping in humanitarian efforts and getting ready to start a career.
Bethany likes to draw, paint, travel, read, and serve others. She loves to be active and serve others. Her favorite subject in school is art. She loves being able to be creative and express herself. It gives her the opportunity to develop skills and learn new concepts that help her grow as an artist.
What makes Bethany different is that she because tries to always be herself. She loves trying new things, and she’s not afraid to take risks or get out of my comfort zone. She enjoys expressing herself and finding new ways to be creative.
Bethany has extreme bad luck at amusement parks. She has walked head on into a pole, got lost and started following the wrong family. She almost never goes an entire day at an amusement park without one of the rides breaking down.
If she could talk with anyone in history, she would love to talk with Walt Disney. Bethany would ask him if he ever expected to make such a large and lasting impact on the world, and ask him how normal people just like himself can similarly make a difference.
Junior Carlos Urbina’s favorite quote is, “Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.” He likes this because nobody is perfect, and we may all fail but we need to have the courage to try again. In five year, Carlos would like to be in college studying accounting and business management. Work based learning and internship is his favorite subject because he gets to go out and get hands on experience.
Carlos’ hobbies include anything that gets him outside. Something interesting about him is that he always has a positive attitude and looks at the positive side of things.
Carlos would like to meet Henry Ford, and he would ask him what his mindset was about taking risks in a business.
Senior McKenna Limb’s favorite quote is, “They never said it would be easy, they said it would be worth it.” Remembering this helps her to keep going even when things get hard. In five years, McKenna sees herself double majoring in Botany and English.
McKenna’s hobbies include saving the world and other extreme sports. Her favorite class is floriculture and greenhouse management. She loves the creativity and freedom of imagination that goes into each project, as well as being able to get dirty. The funnies thing that she ever saw was watching a chicken ride around on my dog’s back.
McKenna would want to have a conversation with Winston Churchill. She would like to know how he felt and what kept him going during the events of WWII.
Senior Juan Garcia sees himself in five years being done with college.
Juan really works at Pizza Factory and really likes playing video games in his free time. One thing that sets Juan apart is that he knows about the history of different video games, the creators of them, and even the business side of video games. He plays a lot of diverse games on difference platforms.
If Juan could talk with anyone in history, he would take with Hiroshi Yamaguchi, the founder of Nintendo, and ask him how he came up with all his creative ideas.
