What are your plans after high school?
My plans after high school would be to attend Alabama A&M University in the fall of 2018 and major in Marketing and minor in international business.

What was the most difficult this you faced in high school?
I moved around a lot throughout middle school and high school so loss of identity was a big problem; unstable home life was also a reason why I was diagnosed with moderate to severe depression, which made it very difficult to enjoy my high school experience the way I wanted to.
