What are your plans for after graduation?
After graduating, during summer I am planning to start working and then join college in the fall to study a course in the medical field — family practitioner.
How did your high school experience prepare you for your future?
High school experience has taught me to believe in myself, be responsible, work hard, never give up, as well as college and future readiness.
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.
A fundraiser at Burnsville Alternative High School (BAHS) exceeded its goal and raised $465 for Colobus Conservation Limited, a member of the Pan Africa Sanctuary Alliance. A match from TJ’s Painting brings the grand total to $715.
“I am so proud of the students’ dedication to this process,” said science teacher Angela Engelhardt. “Students were involved every step of the way, and took their leadership skills and used them to create a global impact.”
