“Good question, I have multiple but my favourite school memory was when I was seven years old, at my old school, and I was performing in a dance recital. I ran onto the stage while other students were performing and yelled, “Hi”, to my grandmother. It’s funny memory but also really sweet to look back on. It’s also one of my grandmothers favourite memories.”

– Where do you hope to be ten years from now? 

“In ten years I hope I am happy. That’s really all I can wish for. I also hope I don’t let money and success affect me too much because family, friends, and having good values is all that really matters to me. In ten years I better be done school though!”
