A. I have been part of National Honor Society since my sophomore year.
Q. Are you involved in any extracurricular activities? How has COVID-19 impacted these activities?
A. I am captain of the color guard, Model UN and swimming this time of year. Thankfully I was able to have my final season of color guard even if it was a bit different.

I am incredibly sad that I’m missing band and chorus for the time being.
