What motivates you to succeed in your schooling? It’s not about success but just doing my best so that my work is something I can be proud of.

What goals do you wish to achieve for the remainder of your secondary schooling? Through COVID-19 lockdowns I’ve learned to value time spent at school with my friends and hope that this can happen more often for the remainder of my secondary schooling. My main goal is to enjoy my time and try the best I can because you only get one high school experience.

What are the keys to being a successful learner? Ask a lot of questions! I know it may drive some of my teachers insane, but I’d rather ask than be left confused. Try to help those around you and ask for help from your peers, because everyone’s in the same situation.

What Career pathway do you hope for yourself? I would love to pursue a career in the Health/Medicine/Sports field, ideally as a physiotherapist. I like helping people, and sport, so to be able to combine the two is the goal.
