Connally High School
Q: Do you have any study tips?
A: Make sure you’re done studying before you get on social media. That’s what I’ve been trying to work on. I put school first. Sometimes I’ll silence my phone.
Q: What is one thing you wish you’d known in your freshman year of high school?
A: Each year is going to get harder. You’ll double the time you spend on homework and activities.
Q: What is the best lesson you’ve learned from a teacher?
A: Don’t worry about what others think. Your future depends on what you think of yourself.
Q: What are your school and community involvements?
A: At school I’m a part of student council and National Honor Society, and I’m involved in PALS. I’m the leader of [Fellowship of Christian Athletes]. This year I did cross-country, football and soccer. I plan on doing tennis and track later in the year.
I’m a leader of my youth group at Church of the Open Door.
Q: With a busy schedule, what do you do to unwind?
A: I de-stress by hanging out with my friends. We love to play soccer until it gets dark.
Q: What do you plan to do after graduation?
A: I’ve applied to University of Texas and Texas A&M to study architectural engineering. I’ve always liked to draw, and I’m good at math, and that major involves those two studies.
