Who was your most inspirational teacher and why?
Mr. (Mikkel) Bjornson (math) always encouraged me to be a better student and leader. He also pushed me to learn more and challenged me academically.
What college are you attending and why did you pick that school?
I am attending Coe College (in Cedar Rapids, Iowa). Coe values diversity and hard work. Its small size also creates a tight knit community.
