Person(s) — other than parent(s) — who were biggest influence on you and why: Karla Forrer has had the most influence on me. She is my horse trainer and has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. She has taught me patience and empathy for others. Also, she has taught me the importance of thinking things through. She is a strong woman, and I aspire to be like her.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years: In 10 years, I hope to have completed my Juris Doctor degree and be practicing law. Also, by this time, I believe I will begin to venture into politics, and I hope to work on policies for human rights in sex trafficking and drug abuse.

“If I were president, I would ...” If I were president, I would address policies that dealt with human rights and increase foreign relations in order to make the United States a safer country for everyone.

Favorite high school memory: My favorite high school memory was running the Basketball Youth Cheer Camp. I loved watching the children’s faces light up whenever they danced and cheered.
