How are you in light of COVID-19?
“I’m trying to make the best of the situation. I took a week or two off, but I kept doing school work so I could retain information for college.”
Keys to success:
“Resilience. Every setback or everything that brings me down is a motivation to keep pushing and keep growing. I really like to surround myself with hard working people. What I am doing right now is helping to build my future. This is why we came to the US: to have freedom and a good education.”
Shout out to parents:
“My mom is a supportive, caring mother. She is strict with schoolwork, but I also make it my priority.”
Advice to younger students:
“School can be difficult, but high school is a good time to go through a self-discovery process. It’s crucial to stay focused. What you do in high school determines your future, the next five years, and the next decade. This is your future, and the end depends on how focused and driven you are now.”
