Your Favorite Class and Why? My favorite class was the college political science class that I took last semester because of the moot court debate. I found it interesting to research and argue for a topic that I did not necessarily believe in. Political science is also my favorite class because it will help me with my college aspirations.
Why is a Solid Education Important? I believe that a solid education is important in becoming a well-rounded person. Well-rounded and educated people are those that eventually change the world.
Immediate Plans after High School Graduation: I plan to work this summer and save as much money as possible before starting my post-secondary education at St. Cloud State University and majoring in criminal justice.
Long-term Plans/Goals: I hope to be accepted into the St. Cloud State and Mitchell-Hamline 3+3 pre-law program and complete my undergraduate studies at St. Cloud before transferring to the Mitchell-Hamline School of Law. After completing my undergraduate and graduate studies I hope to become a practicing attorney or judicial clerk.
