What is the most meaningful thing a teacher has ever taught you or said to you? 

  • “It’s okay to ask for help. Multiple teachers during my time at BAHS have shown me through compassion, patience, and care that I could ask for help and actually receive it without being penalized. Because of them, I’ve become a better student and I know how to ask for help when I need it most.”

Best and worst thing about being a senior? 

  • “The best and worst part about being a senior is leaving Brookville after 18 years. It’s beyond exhilarating knowing that I’ll be going to college in a few months, but knowing that the way I’ve been living my life for the past 18 years is over can be a little overwhelming. I welcome the change, but it will take some time for me to accept that the past is in the past.”

What did you want to be when you grew up in elementary school versus now?

  • “I wanted nothing more than to be a teacher like my mother, or an artist when I was in elementary school, but now I would like to be an editor.”

When high school gets difficult, how do you cope?

  • “Sometimes you have to buckle down and get your work done. That’s just the truth. However, to prepare beforehand, I like to take time to mentally prepare by taking care of my physical needs first. A little cup of coffee, some sweatpants, and a face mask go a long way before writing an essay.”

What is your first day of school traditions? 

  • “I always like to set my best outfit out beforehand and wake up extra early to take pictures with my parents. I also pack my backpack the night before and double-check everything. You can never be too prepared.”

Most embarrassing trend you took part in?

  • “Intense side-bangs. I still have bangs, but they no longer cover ½ of my face.”

If you could change a rule, which rule would you change and why? 

  • “The ‘you can only bring pre-packaged drinks in the school’ rule. Trying to drink a cup of hot coffee in under 20 minutes in my car is not fun.”

What was your best tardy (late to class) excuse?

  • “Usually, I have a teacher’s excuse if I’m late. Journalism and Portfolio are the two classes I’m always late for.”

What is the most creative excuse you’ve used to get out of a homework assignment?

  • “I always do my homework and if I’ve ever forgotten, I usually just ask nicely for an extension.”

If you could start school over, what would you do differently?

  • “If I could start over, I’d mainly take more care of how I acted and treated others. I would try to be more social and make more friends. I’d also try to avoid some cringe-worthy behaviors and choices made in middle and high school. I can definitely go without reliving those moments.”

If you could travel back in time, to the beginning of high school, what would you tell yourself? 

  • “I would tell myself there are going to be moments where I’ll struggle, and it’ll feel like the world is ending, but no matter what, I’ll manage to get back up and keep going. It’ll all be okay.”

Who inspired you throughout high school?

  • “All of my teachers, each in a unique way.”

What has motivated you to get through high school?

  • “Knowing that all my hard work will pay off in the future.”

A song that best describes high school is…

  • “‘Brutal’, by Olivia Rodrigo or ‘Teenagers’, by Chemical Romance.”

What scares you the most about leaving high school and going into the “real world”?

  • “Everything. College debt, inflation, the real threat of death, and failure to name a few.”

What is one word to describe your high school experience? 

  • “An experience.”

What is the most difficult decision you’ve had to make relating to high school?

  • “I’ve had to make multiple difficult decisions in high school. I had to quit soccer to start working. I had to decide what classes I’d have to take to benefit my future. I’ve had to choose when to participate in extracurricular activities. I wouldn’t say there's been one singular “most difficult decision”, life is full of difficult decisions, especially life in high school.”
