What are you reading? "The Hours by Michael Cunningham. I always like to read the book before seeing the movie."
What's your most memorable moment thus far in your senior year? "When we were in Barbados, we went to St. Vincent Island, where we climbed a volcano called Mount La Soufriere. It was 4,080 feet in extremely hot, humid weather. When we finally got to the top and got to look down into the 500-foot deep crater while standing amongst the clouds, it was definitely worth it. It was an amazing experience that even at the time I knew could never be captured by any words or pictures."
Future plans: Will attend University of Kentucky College of Dentistry
Quotable: "Even after four years here, I continue to be challenged and make new discoveries about myself and my surroundings."
