If you could change anything about the world, what would it be? If I could change anything about the world, I think I would try to change the way our government is run. Politicians should not be known for lying, cheating, and spreading rumors like high school girls. I believe if our government was focused on what is important, like being a strong, helpful, and fair nation, we would not be in some of the situations we are in today. Our government should do everything in its power to benefit this country, our home.
What has been your most significant accomplishment in life? Why? My most significant accomplishment in life is being the student I am today. When I was just a little, red-headed, stubborn girl, I was always pushed by my mom and my grandma to excel in my studies. I didn't excel at first; I had to learn to really study and commit myself. By the time I got to high school, I was and am ready to fight for my number one spot!
Who would you consider to be your role model and why? My "Meme" (grandma) has always been a big influence in my life. She has been an educator all of her life and for most of my childhood I was known as her little sidekick. She has pushed me to be the best student I can be. Watching her walk across the Sam Houston graduation stage to get her Masters in Library Science just inspired me to reach for the moon!
