Favorite Quote: “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life” – Confucius
Role Model: My mother has always been my role model because she is the one who pushed me to succeed, taught me how to learn, and told me to follow my passions. She has also endured so much and still pushes through, no matter how hard things become. I hope to be as strong as her as I grow.
Salutatorian, Timothy Luna
