My advice to parents: I would advise parents to remember to truly listen to their children. As a child myself, we understand deep down that the decisions parents make no matter how strange or strict it may seem at the time is always to keep us from danger and have our best interests at heart. However, I think it’s important to truly listen to your child in order to help them understand the decisions and rules that are made are created with their best interest at heart.

My biggest regret: I have no regrets because everything I’ve done up to this point in my life has made me the person I am today.

Next year I will be: getting my Bachelor of Science degree in Neuroscience.
