What would you most like to be interviewed about I would love to be interviewed about my educational success because it has never been easy for me. I have had to work extremely hard for my grades and take much pride in that.
What inspiring things about you does your nomination not cover? One inspiring thing my nomination does not cover is my overall health success. I have been diagnosed with a heart condition since birth, but never let me stop me from my goals in life.
If you were to present a topic to a group of your peers, what would it be and why? I would present to my peers the challenges of overcoming a sports injury. I would choose this because I have gone through three different surgeries for my knee, but never let it stop me from my athletic goals. I have learned that these setbacks have only made me a stronger athlete as well as person. So for anyone struggle with an injury, I am here to tell you it’s possible to overcome it and come out of it stronger than before.
