What is your favorite memory of being in school?
My favorite memory of being in school is from the time I spent at 6th grade camp. It was the first time I was away from home and I learned so much through hands on activities and experiences outdoors. I loved the night time hikes and getting to experience it all with my classmates!
What do you value most about St. Patrick?
I really value the community based environment that St. Patrick has to offer for their staff, families, and students. It is obvious that the school is built on the foundation of love and focuses on including all people involved in our students’ lives to help support them in finding success in all that they do!
Who or what inspires you most?
I think my mom inspires me the most in my life because she is the most strong and independent woman I know. She lives her life driven by compassion and care for others and is always there for my family and our friends whenever we need here. To this day, if I need anything or need help making a tough decision, she is always the first person I call!
What do you like to do in your free time?
In my free time I like to be active and spend time outdoors. I love to play sports, especially soccer, and go on walks in my neighborhood. I also enjoy cooking and baking new and interesting foods as often as I can. Lastly, I love to craft and make new things for myself to enjoy
What is the best advice you have ever received?
The best advice I ever received was to take a deep breath and not sweat the small stuff. In life we are faced with many challenges, some big and some small, and it is important to remind ourselves to not focus on the small things that are out of our control. I think of this every time I am worried about something that I shouldn’t be and then I am reminded to take a deep breath and focus on the more important things in life!
