China Spring High School
Q: Do you have any study tips?
A: Think of a way to apply what you’re learning. If I know an application, it’s easier for me to remember it.
Q: What is one thing you wish you’d known in your freshman year of high school?
A: I wish I knew my teachers would work with me on different things — not just the subject they teach. The teachers at my school are helpful and supportive.
Q: What is the best lesson you’ve learned from a teacher?
A: My chemistry teacher, Mrs. Crittenden, has been teaching us about the real world. She’s talked about how to go into a job interview or ask for a recommendation.
Q: What are your school and community involvements?
A: I play French horn in the band. I’m on the crew for theater productions. I’m a member of PALS and in the National Honor Society. I’m the president of Cougars in Action, a volunteer program. I do UIL academics in current [issues and] events, speech and debate.
Q: With a busy schedule, what do you do to unwind?
A: I like to watch crime dramas. I talk things out with my parents. They provide a new perspective and give me advice.
Q: What do you plan to do after graduation?
A: I’ve been accepted at Baylor and the University of Texas. I’m still applying out of state as well. I plan to study linguistics and international relations.
