Q: What type of music artists inspire you? 

A: “I like Omi, Mac Miller [and] anything 90s alternative grunge.”


Q: What got you into 90s music?

A: “My dad. He played a lot of it growing up, so I listened to a lot of Nirvana and Pearl Jam and Metallica.”


Q: How did you become a bowler?

A: “[My friend was going through a funk], so me and his other friend were like, hey, let’s go take him to do something. [We decided on] bowling and then I noticed that he was really good at it and I [asked him to] teach me. And so I started bowling all summer and then we were like, let’s just try out for the team for fun and we got on and we both made varsity.”


Q: How long have you been bowling?

A: “Since May [2019]. Not even a year.”


Q: What has been your happiest moment this year?

A: “Honestly, making the team and making all my new friends and everything it’s been a big accomplishment.”


Q: Would you say that bowling is one of your favorite things?

A: “Yes, definitely. I bowl like four times a week.”


Q: What has been the worst moment for you this year?

A: “I went through like a funk for about a month where I just was in a bad mood, but I kind of came out of that  recently.”


Q: How does it feel to be in the first graduating class?

A: “It’s kind of cool. It’s kind of weird though because I still remember going to a different high school and then coming here so it’s [almost surreal].”


Q: What are your plans for after high school? 

A: “As of right now, I’m probably going to Texas Tech [to major in] psychology. I have to go on a tour to confirm [but] that’s it. I plan on bowling there as well because they have a team.” 


Q: Does going to college at all scare you?

A: “I try to find comfort in it, actually. I don’t think everyone has to go to college but having a degree is kind of like a security thing for your future with jobs and stuff.”


Q: Do you have any advice for underclassmen? 

A: “Don’t put your happiness on hold for others.”
