What is the funniest thing that has ever happened to you?

I have a sister who is three years older than me. When I was in 9th grade and she was a senior, we were in an extracurricular orchestra that started in September. She played the flute, and she got to know one of the clarinet players, Ben, really well. I also because his friend throughout the year, since he knew Maren, and I hung out with her during breaks. In the beginning of April, our orchestra went on tour, where we spent a lot of time on the bus together. On the very first day, Maren and I were talking with a group of people, which included Ben and another guy named Christian. When Christian mentioned that he was a freshman, I said “Woo hoo! Go Freshman!” Ben looked at me with a weird expression on his face. “Wait, you are a freshman?” he asked. “Yeah,” I replied. He looked over at Maren and exclaimed, “I thought you were twins!” We died laughing. He thought we were twins for almost 8 months, and for the rest of the tour, he called us the “not-twins.”

What makes you different from everyone else?

I love school. I love learning. There aren’t a lot of teenagers who really love school and excel in it. I do really well in my classes and everyone tells me I am super smart, but I like to use my knowledge to help others succeed in class as well. Another thing that makes me different is my willingness to serve others. I love to help others, whether it be with homework or cleaning or babysitting. It is a part of who I am.

If you could have a conversation with anyone from history, who would it be and what would you ask them?

I would choose my great-grandma Hart. My mom really loved her and looked up to her because she was an amazing woman. I would love to get to meet her and get to know her, just have a normal conversation. Either that or just be able to watch her as she lived her life and see what qualities she had that made her so amazing so I could be a better person like she was.

What is your favorite subject in school and why?

I have a lot of favorite subjects because I like school. I enjoy being able to figure out problems in math. I love to play my violin in orchestra and participate in all the concerts and performances. I also love technical theatre; it is so fun to build sets and work lights and know what’s going on behind the scenes for plays and musicals.
