What was the best advice you have received? Who gave you the advice?
The best advice that I have received was given to me by my father. He once told me, “If anything is worth doing, it’s worth doing right.”
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
In 5 years, I see myself working in an elementary school setting as a Speech and Language Therapist and working towards my Masters Degree in Speech Pathology.
If you could change anything about this world, what would it be and why?
If I could change anything about this world, I would change how greedy everyone is. Human greed is the cause of many of the issues that my generation is having to live with.
If you could invite 3 people to dinner (other than relatives), who would they be and why?
I would probably invite Jane Austen, because I love her novels and I personally relate to her character, Emma, on so many levels. I would also invite Ottorino Respighi, because I adore his compositions and arrangements. Lastly, I would invite Rosalind Franklin, because she discovered the shape of DNA before a man.

Editor's Note: Teen of the Week is nominated by Alice ISD faculty and is selected by an Alice ISD faculty review committee. In the years past this recognition meant a chance to receive a scholarship from the Alice Echo - News Journal. However, due to the coronavirus and changes made to the Alice Echo - News Journal the scholarship is unavailable this year.
