Rapoport Academy

Q: Do you have any study tips?
A: I try to be organized. I like to make my own study guides and flash cards.
Q: What is one thing you wish you’d known in your freshman year of high school?
A: I wish I knew the significance of college preparation and what makes you appealing to colleges. I knew grades were important, but I didn’t know you had to be the whole package. My junior and senior year I joined more clubs.
Q: What is the best lesson you’ve learned from a teacher?
A: Various teachers have told me just to do my best. If I don’t make an A, see that as a learning experience.
Q: What are your school and community involvements?
A: I’m in National Honor Society. I run track and cross-country. I’m involved in the dance team.
I’m in the Waco Youth Council, and I’m a junior Providence Hospital volunteer. I’ve volunteered at Art on Elm, the World Hunger Relief Farm and the Humane Society of Central Texas.
Q: With a busy schedule, what do you do to unwind?
A: I take a break from everything. I’ll go outside and read a book or listen to music.
Q: What do you plan to do after graduation?
A: I’m leaning toward Baylor because my parents both attended Baylor. I’m interested in studying animal or environmental sciences.
