2018 Senior Profile: Eyakem Yilma

Who was a favorite teacher or staff member and why?
Miss Hansen is my favorite staff member at BHS. I really enjoyed being in her class and having her as my director because she cares about her students and their well being, while holding an incredible passion that brings out the best version of herself and her students.

What makes you most excited when you think about your future?
What I'm most excited for when I finish high school is the ability to meet new people and make lasting connections with people I've never met before.

What advice would you give to younger students to make the most of their high school experiences?  
My advice for people coming into the school would be to respect and cherish everyone no matter their views. It is very easy to lose faith in people and avoid them. It is more difficult to communicate and garner respect and understanding. I hope that BHS Students will take the time to listen to and cherish each other, because we are all equal and needed parts of the same community.

To celebrate members of the Class of 2018 and help the One91 Community get to know some of the students at Burnsville High School and Burnsville Alternative High School, we're publishing several "Senior Profiles" as we gear up for commencement ceremonies the week of June 4. Congratulations to all of our seniors!
