Crawford High School
Q: Do you have any study tips?
A: Start making a habit of studying before you go to college. I like to sit in a quiet room where I can formulate my thoughts. Note cards are my best friend. But it’s not a specific thing — it’s just about determination.
Q: What is one thing you wish you’d known in your freshman year of high school?
A: I wish I knew more about class rankings. We weren’t told about our ranking until we were juniors.
Q: What is the best lesson you’ve learned from a teacher?
A: My 10th grade English teacher, Mrs. Janet Walters, taught me about language. She made English fun.
Q: What are your school and community involvements?
A: I am a part of the cross-examination debate team [for UIL]. I’m the president of [Family, Career and Community Leaders of America]. I’m on yearbook. I was a part of PALS. I’m in Beta Club, on all-A academic honor roll.
I’ve volunteered at Ridgecrest Retirement and Health Care. I’m a member of Shiloh Baptist Church. I usually help my parents at their convenience store [B&B Express Mart].
Q: With a busy schedule, what do you do to unwind?
A: Eating. [Laughs.] They say working out is good for stress, but I don’t do that.
Q: What do you plan to do after graduation?
A: I plan to attend the University of Texas at Tyler. I want to study health and kinesiology. I’d like to go to pharmacy school.
