Favorite Memory: "I will always remember the simple things... the Battle of the Classes, the football and basketball games -- the energy that is in those places, you can't recreate it. The school spirit, the community that exists, the ability to bond with other classes, this is what I will remember most at Rowland High School."
Who Inspired You: "I think it is really hard to find a mentor that you are able to absorb knowledge from and Ms. Smith was that individual for me. I was able to just listen and learn as much as humanly possible from her. She taught me so many valuable lessons and perspectives, from open mindedness and being empathetic to others and being caring. Her mentorship, her mother-like figure, she would help me with so many situations and give me wisdom. She is one of my biggest inspirations."
Future Plans: "I am going to be a proud cadet in the Class of 2025 at the United States Air Force Academy. I haven't decided what I want to do per say, but definitely considering my options as an intelligence officer, engineer, or even in the space force. I am excited to have so many opportunities."
Advice for Future Raiders: "I value Rowland Unified above any other school district in the surrounding area because of our very interesting dynamics we have. At Rowland High School, we have a balance of athletics, leadership, academic and extra curricular programs. You can experience so much to understand what you want to do in the future. This is a place that you can constantly fail and because of that, get better each and every day. I would tell them to take advantage and experience as much as possible!"
