Favorite Class and Why:

Art class has always been my favorite. Art has always been an interest to me and will forever be a hobby of mine. Spanish is also one of my favorite classes. The idea of being able to leave the country and communicate with others, or help them if they come here is an exciting thought!

Hobby or Your Favorite Thing to do in Your Free Time: 

I love to play the guitar and take lessons. I also spend about 10 hours a month volunteering in a worldwide preaching campaign as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses.

Clubs or Extra-Curricular Activities: 

I take guitar lessons. I work as a barista at a local coffee house. I also work at a physical therapist office as a physical therapist technician.

Plans after High School/College: 

After high school, I plan on going to college to be an RN. I have always wanted to be in the medical field, and nursing seems like the ultimate job to have where I can work half-time and still make enough money to support myself. Eventually, I plan on moving to the Dominican Republic to do more volunteer work as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses. 

Favorite Personal Finance Topic: 

Credit cards have always fascinated me. Knowing how they work and how to use one responsible seems very important as Americans use it more and more.

Interesting Fact:

I am a vegetarian and I love listening to all types of music.
