Reicher Catholic High School
Q: What has helped you develop good study habits?
A: I went to junior high at St. Louis [Catholic School]. The teachers there emphasized staying organized. Since being at Reicher, I’ve learned how to manage my time wisely.
Q: Do you have any study tips to offer students?
A: Find the time that is best for you to study. If you are more of an evening person, schedule a time to study then. Study when your brain is more receptive to learning.
Q: Where is your favorite study spot?
A: I mostly study at my house, but I’d want to go somewhere quiet and outdoors.
Q: What is one thing you wish you’d known your freshman year?
A: I wish I’d known how to say no to something. I thought I had to [say yes] to a bunch of different activities and try everything. It’s OK to know your limits and know when you need to stop pushing yourself.
Q: What is the best lesson you’ve learned from a teacher?
A: Read. Read everything.
Q: What are your school and community involvements?
A: I’m the president of the executive board of student council. I’m a trainer on the Reicher football team, as well as a manger for the baseball team. I played basketball for four years, but I like managing sports more. I’m in the choir and a Reicher emissary.
I was a Symphony Belle last year, and I volunteer at St. Louis Catholic Church.
Q: How do you decompress from a stressful schedule?
A: I watch YouTube videos and go on Twitter. Or play with my cats.
Q: Use one word to describe yourself.
Q: What do you plan to do after high school graduation?
A: Attend a four-year college and go into the field of education or higher education. Or I’d go into the medical field. I’m not sure where I’m going to college yet.
