Class of 2019
Early Education and Care
I live in Dedham with three siblings, one older brother, and two younger sisters. At school I’m on the soccer and swim teams, I’m a student ambassador, a part of the Student Advisory Board, a member of the National Honor Society and I’m a SkillsUSA state officer. I also work two part-time jobs.
I want to attend a four-year college to earn my bachelor’s degree in secondary education majoring in math and later go back to school to earn my master’s degree.
What BHR has done for you
Blue Hills has opened so many doors for me and allowed me to step out of my comfort zone to become who I am today. It has allowed me to expand on my knowledge and allowed me a jump-start on life once I leave.
Why you came to BHR instead of going to your local high school
I came to Blue Hills because it was a trade school and I knew that Blue Hills had more to offer than Dedham High.
A quotation that inspires you or that you live by
I live by the quote “You miss 100% of the shots you don't take.”
Your favorite book or movie
My favorite book is “To Kill a Mockingbird.”
Best advice you ever received from a teacher/parent/family member/friend
The best advice I received was from a teacher my freshman year who said “Love what you do and you’ll never work a day in your life.”
Advice you would give to an 8th grade student applying to BHR
I would tell an 8th grader that he or she is making the right decision, and to keep an open mind and a positive attitude because you never know, something you think you hate you might end up absolutely loving.
Teacher or faculty member at BHR who has helped or inspired you the most
So many different teachers have helped me in many different ways but if I had to pick one it would be Mr. Foley.
Who is your hero or inspiration
Someone who inspires and helps me to become a better person is Karimah Land. Karimah has set such a great example and has shown me what a great leader truly is. Karimah is the person that I look up to and aspire to be!
Most memorable moment at BHR
Traveling to SkillsUSA States this year and being elected State Officer is my favorite memory.
