Bosqueville High School

Q: Do you have any study tips?
A: While I’m studying, highlighting things help me stay focused. I also try to take active breaks, where I walk around or sit on a bouncy ball.
Q: What is one thing you wish you’d known in your freshman year of high school?
A: How valuable sleep is. I kept saying, ‘I’ll sleep later.’ But you never catch up if you do that.
Q: What is the best lesson you’ve learned from a teacher?
A: From my English teacher, Ms. Brown, I’ve learned how powerful words are. She taught me how to look at language. There’s strength and depth in words.
Q: What are your school and community involvements?
A: At school, I’m in [Future Farmers of America], UIL [extemporaneous] informative speaking and one-act play.
I’m involved in Hoops for Hope at my church [Highland Baptist Church]. I also work at my church and get paid in money for mission trips.
Q: With a busy schedule, what do you do to unwind?
A: I’ll force myself to take a break. I’ll either relax my mind or work my mind in another way. I’ll talk to my parents a lot — we have a great relationship.
Q: What do you plan to do after graduation?
A: I want to go Ouachita Baptist University in Arkansas. Out of all the schools I visited, that one felt right. I plan to study Christian studies so I can be a missionary.
