If I were principal for a day: I would allow matt-ball competitions all day long.

Favorite school memory: Going to Zoombezi Bay in 5th grade for a field trip in the “challengers” class.

People who have been an inspiration to me include: My sister

Because: I can go to her about anything, and she doesn’t let people walk all over her.

Lately, I have been reading: My Instagram Timeline.

My advice to parents: Parents (including mine!) could probably be less hard on their kids for having dirty laundry on the floor when there are kids doing much worse out there.

My biggest regret: The way I dressed in Middle-School.

Next year I will be: An Airman in the Airforce Natural Guard, and going to either OSU main campus or OSU Lima branch.
