Defining moment in my life: The most defining moment in my life was attending my first mission trip after my freshman year of high school. Going on that trip led me to do more volunteer work in my own community as well as attend two more mission trips.

Secret to high school success: I developed successful study habits early in my high school career, managed my time wisely and worked, which led to my success.

If I had $10 million: If I had $10 million, I would create my own non-profit organization to help economically challenged high school students to achieve their life goals after high school, by either attending a 2-year college, university, or a trade school.
