What is your plan for the future? Attending OSUM and getting a Bachelor's degree in digital media.
What/who has been the biggest influence on your plan for the future? My mother has been the biggest influence on my plans for the future. After witnessing her battle with breast cancer, I became dedicated to finding a more effective way to treat this terrible disease so that more women like her can have a fighting chance.
What is one of the best things about being a student at Harding High School? Always push yourself to YOUR own limit and don't over stress yourself. Don't be afraid to try new things and try to make as many friends as possible. It's all about the experience.
How is GEAR UP helping you with your plan for the future? GEAR UP has helped me so much when it came to my college and what my next step had to be. They made a stressful situation less stressful and even helped me with my essays that I needed for scholarships.
