1.  What is/are your favorite memory(ies) of Segerstrom?

My favorite memory from Segerstrom was when I won a game of musical chairs at my first assembly during freshman year and won a free Segerstrom hoodie.

2.  How has your high school experience at Segerstrom shaped your life?

My high school experience at Segerstrom has made me a lot more outgoing. When we did online school I became a hermit who never went outside, but Segerstrom made me involved with a lot of things to the point where I now hate being home and like going out all the time.

3.  What are your plans after high school graduation?

My plans are to go to OCC and figure out what job may be best for me. As of right now, I’m leaning towards becoming a Fire Safety Specialist or at least something in the forensics field.

4.  What is one piece of advice you would give to an incoming freshman?

Stop worrying about what you’re going to do in the future, or who you are right now. You have four years to figure all of that out, so just enjoy your freshman year for now.
