High school goals: "Academically, I entered the Pre-IB program at Page and my goal was to ultimately get my IB diploma, which I hope to do in a few weeks. A/B honor roll was another goal of mine and I hope to finish out with that. In sports, I just wanted to play three sports every year in high school and I did that. I played soccer in the fall, wrestled in the winter and played lacrosse in the spring. I just wanted to have fun with my teammates and build a good relationship with them."
Life goal: "I wanted to be able to prepare myself in high school for the years to come. I just focused on working hard."
