What's your dream career? My dream is to be a writer and performer. Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve wanted to be an actress. My favorite inspiration is Issa Rae, who started by doing a YouTube series and now she’s on “Insecure” on HBO. She’s a writer and an actress. That’s what I’d love to do.
English is my absolute favorite subject. Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve loved writing. All sorts of writing – poems, narratives, fiction. Writing is my peace. Nothing makes me happier than listening to some music and then writing. I learned a lot about writing in school, but what really helped me grow as a writer are the things I’ve done outside of school. I plan on majoring in journalism and theater in college.
I have three. Ms. Holmes is our social worker, and she really helped me through some tough times. High school can be tough at times, and she was always there for me. She’s always given me really good advice that’s helped me.
Ms. Sawyer is our computer teacher, and we’ve always been close. And Ms. Cassie Clark is my math teacher. She’s a great teacher, but she also taught me about other things that are even more important. All three of them have taught me life lessons that will always help me. They pushed me to do things that will benefit me later on in life.
