Describe a meaningful experience you had while at Lakeview.
Lakeview has been meaningful to me, and now that my time here is coming to an end, I know that graduation, regardless of how it is held, will be the most meaningful experience for me.

How has Lakeview prepared you for your future?
Lakeview has prepared me for my future by providing me with the tools to deal with the level of rigor that college requires to excel.

What is your biggest academic accomplishment and why?
My biggest academic accomplishment is scoring a 100 on Coach Clarke’s final exam for chemistry because I struggled in that class and was able to work towards a better level of understanding.

Teacher, coach or staff member at Lakeview who has made the biggest impact on you:
The biggest impact that a staff member from Lakeview has made on me would be Señor Iglesias for only expecting the best through and through.

What will you miss most at Lakeview Academy? I will miss Mr. Oh’s art classes the most and I know that I am prepared for any art-related classes in college.

Did you participate in anything outside of Lakeview?
I found myself competing in ID combines on the hunt to find how I measure up to certain programs for college soccer. This affected me because it increased my drive to better myself.

College you will attend in the fall: I plan on attending UAB

College degree or area of study: I will be majoring in biomedical science on the premed track as well as minoring in Spanish

Other than college, do you have any other plans after high school?
I plan to spend my free time travelling to see the world. I would also like to spend some of my time at any local animal shelters in need of volunteers.
