Favorite Quote: "A few nice words can help a person more than you think."
Favorite Memory: My favorite memory, or perhaps memories, are of marching band. I remember always eating dinner together and then getting pumped for our next competition on double-header Saturdays. Being a part of something so much bigger than just me is a memory that I will always hold close to my heart.
Advice To Future Generations: There may be days in your high school career that are what you'd describe as "the worst day ever" and in some cases the worst day ever can seem like it turns into the worst Days ever. The key to stay positive on days like these and to keep yourself in the right head space is to think about and write down the best thing that happened that day. Big or small. Trust me, it helps.
