What is your theme song?

“Chariots of Fire”.

If you had to eat one food for the rest of your life, which food would you choose?

A grilled chicken Caesar salad.

What is your favorite color?

Brown.

What was your favorite grade in school and why?

I would have to say my junior year because it was a lot of fun with friends.    There wasn’t any pressure of senior year, but you are still top dog.

If you could have any superpower, which would you choose?

Teleportation.

How do you want to be remembered once you have left Temple?

As someone who encouraged and smiled at everyone.

What are your plans after high school?

I plan to go to Grace College, get my bachelor’s degree in three years, and then go to chiropractor school.

Where do you see yourself in five years?

I’ll be in chiropractor school, and after that I want my own mini farm.

Do you have a theme verse and, if so, what is it?

Ezekiel 36:26-27 “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I    will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.  And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws.”

Do you have any advice for the younger classes?

Don’t focus on yourself. Pour into others. Be an encouragement and say “Hi” to people in the hallway; you never know how much it means to them. Walk with Jesus because He’s pretty rad.

If you could go to any time period, which would you choose?

1900’s. 

How has Temple Christian school impacted your life?

It’s really given me an environment for reaching out to people and growing. I have enjoyed my time here and I look forward to moving on with the principles that have been sown into my life here.

What will you miss most about high school?

My friends in my class and the class below me. I know that everyone says we will still be friends, but who knows what will really happen.
