What did you learn about yourself during lockdown? The shutdown taught me to focus on the positive, to be resiliant and grateful and to just roll with things. I learned to cherish the people around me and take advantage of the opportunities to assist others.
How have you grown as an individual during your time at OHS? My time as an IB Diploma Candidate has made me more open-minded, confident to assume leadership roles, and organized. I’ve learned to advocate for myself, have better time management and strengthened my communication skills with peers and adults.
What change in the world would you make? Help heal the division in today’s world. Particularly in our nation, social, cultural and religious factors are dividing us, and without change, will pull America apart.
