Q: Tell me about some of your hobbies and why you are interested in them.

A: Oh, man. I love the theatre. It’s so fun to get to explore characters and make people feel and think things. Musicals have been a big thing for me since I was a little kid. My mom instilled that love and appreciation for it. I also tap dance, it’s harder than it looks, trust me. I also enjoy reading and writing. When I have nowhere else to go, those two give me somewhere to be.

Q: What’s your favorite show? Why? (Character, episode, season)

A: I could go on and on and on about my favorite shows. I’m a pop culture nerd. Got to go with my favorite, now, loyalties and all. Lost will always hold a special place in my heart. It was very diverse and thought-provoking on how we treat people, especially for the show popular in the early 2000s. Can’t specify on a favorite character, or you’ll be falling asleep on your keyboard because I’ll write in MLA format on why I like all of them. My favorite season was the third — often overlooked but it’s really when interesting things started to happen.

Q: Who was your favorite teacher in elementary school? What are some things you remember about them?

A: Even though it’s considered an intermediate schools here (which is stupid), I liked all of my 5th-grade teachers. I remember ignoring the other kids on Fun Friday and talking with my math teacher Mr. Holland. I’ve always been an old soul.

Q: Tell me about your best experience at FHS so far.

A: I’m only a sophomore, so I don’t have much to build upon. I’ll go with a cliche and say that being able to be around my friends much more than I used to is great. I’d always get put in separate classes than them when I was younger and never get to see them unless it was outside of school, so it’s great that I get to have classes and talk with them here, too.

Q: If you were a dog, what breed would you be and why?

A: Think I’d be a mutt. They’re the best kind, after all.

Q: When will you be running for president? What will your campaign slogan be?

A: Don’t think I could handle that stress. I think I’ll just stay an activist and attend protests and let my voice be heard that way, thanks. But, to answer the question, I guess when I’m 35 in 2037. That’s the age requirement after all. My slogan would be something witty and biting. I wouldn’t be subtle. Let’s go with … hm … the only minority ruining America is the rich.

Q: Do you have any guilty pleasure music? (Artist/Band, Genre).

A: 40s-60s music, particularly the doo-wop.
