What is your school choice? I am planning to go to George Fox University and enter into their nursing program. I am super excited to go there because the campus is beautiful and everyone is super nice.
How has the pandemic affected you as a 2021 senior? The pandemic has affected me quite a bit as a 2021 senior. I was not able to go to a real prom and it was difficult to be productive and motivated when I was at home for all my classes.
This image is from the last dance I was able to go to before the pandemic.
What does the NHS entail for you and what leadership roles do you have within it? The National Honors Society was a wonderful opportunity for me to be apart of something that allows me to volunteer for certain things inside my school. It also allows me to be a leader and role-model for my school.
What is your favorite volunteer activity and why? My favorite volunteer activity is to help at hospital centers. I love to help the nurses out because it will help me with my future career. I also love being able to see the patients and make them smile when they don't really feel like smiling.
