What experiences or teachers from ASB might have inspired who you are today?
 
"I had really close relationships with my teachers at ASB, and I honestly don't even know where to start! I was especially close to Mr. Mirza as Economics was always riveting in content and witty jokes. Mr. Llamazares was always good to support whenever content piled up. English Lit with Ms. Thompson allowed me to express myself creatively when the buzz of IB was overwhelming. I also had a good relationship with Ms. Davis, Mr. Wager, and Mr. Cook."



Tell us a little about any extracurricular or service activities you were involved in at ASB.
 
"I particularly enjoyed NESDA impromptu speaking. Having seconds to prepare a three-minute structured speech on the most random prompts is a skill that helps me think on my feet to this day. I also joined Model United Nations, which had really memorable trips and football, which I very much loved."



What would be a favorite ASB memory?
 
"A favorite ASB memory for me was the last day of school when teachers gave us individual certificates about our attitudes/personality in that particular class. It really illustrated the close relationships we had with our teachers outside academics."



In your opinion, what makes ASB special?
 
"The diversity of people in such a small space. I love the range of conversations I have had with all of the connections I've kept throughout the years."
