If I were principal for a day: I would start school at 10 a.m. and have a dance party after lunch until we go home.
Favorite school memory: Decorating for prom during school my junior year is one of my favorite high school memories. We spent all day putting things together and making it look really great for prom.
People who have been an inspiration to me: Both of my parents have been such a big inspiration to me. My parents push me to follow my dreams and never back down. They have given me the confidence to accomplish my goals and reach for the stars.
Lately I've been reading: I am the Messenger by Markus Zusak.
My advice to parents: Always support your kids through everything. Encouragement from the ones you love means so much, even if teenagers don't say it. Also, let your child make some decisions on their own. My parents have let me make some of my own decisions and I feel much more independent and confident in myself.
My biggest regret: Not coming out of my comfort zone faster and worrying about what others think. High school is all about learning and having fun, so don't worry about the rest.
Next year I will be: Attending Ohio Northern University and majoring in Pharmacy.
