How have your teachers impacted you?
Miss Olandt is such an amazing teacher because of how she understands students on another level. She's always understood us even when we made pretty dumb mistakes. She's impacted me in a way that makes me see that mistakes are completely normal and I don't have to beat myself up for it or anything.
What’s your favorite thing or memory about ICSB?

The community at ICSB is probably something that I've never seen anywhere else. It's so unique and we're all so close to each other.
What are some of the ways you’ve grown since you first came to ICSB?
I've definitely grown a lot academically and spiritually throughout high school. There were several challenges I had to face in both of those areas, but I came out learning so much from that.
What colleges did you get accepted to and which one will you pick?
I got accepted to Cedarville University and Bryan College, and I will be attending Bryan College.
