Who was your most inspirational teacher and why?

Mr. (Adam) Higgins was my most inspirational teacher. He put up with me for four years and made me a better person in the process.

What college are you attending, and why did you pick that school?

I am going to Reed College in Portland, Oregon. I chose to go there because it has a really great academic reputation and a really unique class structure that I think will help me succeed.

What are your plans after college?

I plan on attending graduate school and possibly becoming an attorney.
