What is your favorite memory of being in school?
My favorite memory of being in school was being a part of the school "family." I looked forward to being on campus at my elementary school every single day because the people made me feel like I belonged.

What do you value most about St. Patrick?
I value St. Patrick's commitment to embracing and supporting all its students on their academic, social, emotional, and spiritual journey!

Who or what inspires you most?
My parents inspire me the most because they have encouraged me to always do my best and that it was alright to make mistakes in life as long as I learned from my mistakes, always gave it my all, and acted with an empathetic heart.

What do you like to do in your free time?
In my free time I like to go to the beach, go hiking, and play board games with my family.

What is the best advice you have ever received?
The best advice I have ever received was from my dad. I remember one time my family was mourning the loss of a family member, and my dad said to my sister and I, "The Lord will establish peace for us." - Isaiah 26:12. Ever since that day, that verse has been my family's motto. We all know that no matter what we are going through in life, the Lord is right there besides us. We may not always be able to understand why something is happening, but we can trust in the guarantee that if we remain faithful, the Lord will grant us peace.
