What would you most like to be interviewed about? I would definitely like to be interviewed about my leadership in football. I have a drive to win and push others to become better athletes. Both on the field and in the weight room, I act as a role model, and that pushes me to do the best I can. Even playing football when I was younger, leadership came easily to me. Now, as a senior, I am excited to see what this season holds, and I am looking forward to making an impact on others. I am very determined, and I thrive when it comes to being a leader.
What inspiring things about you does your nomination not cover? My nomination does not cover my hard work in school. I strive to achieve either Principal’s List or Honor Roll. I have spent many long nights finishing homework and studying for tests after a long day of either sports or work. I ensure my grades do not fall, and I put in extra time and effort to do my best. I have a very strong will to learn both in school and outside of school at my job. I am one of the top in my class, and I even take advanced classes to increase my knowledge.
If you were to present a topic to a group of your peers, what would it be on and why? To my peers, I would talk about hard work and determination in general. I put in a lot of hours at my job, and I take pride in saving my money. I am very proud that I pay for the majority of my needs on my own, as not many kids my age can claim that same title. For example, I pay monthly insurance on my truck, and I pay for the expenses to fix it when something goes wrong. Also, when I want tools for work, I pay for it and buy items to increase my overall work ability.
