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

My favorite memory is meeting the friends I have now because we are all so close and have many memories together. One memory is going to Disneyland as a big group and spending the whole day there.

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

I think my experience as a high school student shaped my life in a good way because I always had someone there for me, whether it was a teacher or my friends, and they helped me to prepare for the future. 

3.  What are your plans after high school graduation?

My plan after graduation is to attend OCC and then transfer to a UC for a degree in Interior Design.

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

One piece of advice I would give an incoming freshman is to always stay organized and keep your circle small because having a small group of true friends is better than having a big group of fake friends.
