Senior Quote: "I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I need to be." - Douglas Adams from UP.

Her advice to underclassmen is "You, your plans, and the people around you will change, but always keep your head up and remember who you are. You'll learn what's important and what's not in high school. All you need is your friends and the things that make you happy. This is just the beginning and the best is yet to come."
