“Have fun. Obviously you need to do what you need to do like study, get good grades, do extracurricular, stuff like that, but don’t forget to take breaks and just enjoy your life because two years here runs by really really quickly, so you definitely should try to live your life the best you can.”

“As for JETS, it’s been doing pretty good. I felt like its been a wild ride because we basically have things to do the entire year. For example, we’re not events-based, so we’ve just been busy the entire time, which has definitely been tough at times, but I think now that we’re nearing the end, it’s been really rewarding. And I think we’ve done a fairly decent job. I can’t really tell just because we’re now on the other side, but I’ve had a really good time doing it and I feel like all of us have learned a lot and I really hope that people who have been a part of it have also been learning things.”

"I think it’s easy to become concerned with certain things like college application and maintaining your GPD and making sure you’re perfect, but it can be really hard to do that and maintain a healthy social life, and I think that having friends around with you and hanging out with people rather than simply focusing on academic things is really important to make sure that your high school experience is good because when you look back, you don’t want to think ‘oh what was I doing to be that perfect student to get into that amazing college.’ You’ll really look back and think about the good memories where you’re doing things with friends at 2 AM.”
