Aerosmith or the Lumineers

After-school activities:

photography and spending time with family.

Parents:
John and Leslie Nichols

Favorite teacher and why:
My favorite teacher is Ms. Wilkerson. She has made me grow as a writer and has influenced me to pursue a career in writing. She is constantly pushing me to be a better writer, a better thinker and a global thinker.

Personal hero and why:
My grandma Mary is my personal hero because she has been through so much, but she always has a smile on her face. She is one of  my biggest supporters.

Preferred college:
At the moment, I am considering Black Hills State University, the University of Wyoming, the University of Utah and the University of  Texas.

Dream job:
My dream job would have to be teaching abroad or working behind the scenes for a national news broadcasting company.

Highlight of your high school experience:
The highlight of my high school experience was being student body president. I was able to connect to everyone in our school and our  community, and I know that that made me grow as a person. Because of this role I have developed strong leadership qualities, I know  the powerful impact of school organizations on achievement and belonging, and I can confidently bring a school together through a wide range of activities.

What accomplishment are you the most proud of?
I am most proud of the fact that adults and peers look to me for support with decision making and leadership that affects my athletic  teams, the school and my community.

If you were the principal of your high school for a week, what would you do or change?
I would have students teach their classes. Every day a different student would be assigned to teach their class for the day. The lesson  would depend upon the core content of the class.

If you could have dinner with one person, living or dead, who would choose and why?
I would have dinner with my grandpa John, who I’ve never met. It would be wonderful to learn more about what his life was like before  he passed.

If you could live anywhere or do anything for one year, what would you do and why?
If I could live anywhere for one year, I would definitely live in Norway so that I could completely immerse myself in the culture.

What advice would you give to yourself as a freshman?
I would tell her to be herself. I spent so much time worrying about being like my peers and I wish I wouldn’t have. I would encourage her to embrace her flaws and celebrate her insecurities, because life is so much better that way.
