What nationality is your last name?
“It’s French – the last ‘t’ in my last name is silent.”
Ever try any sports while at Bay Port?
“When I was younger I did but nothing while at Bay Port. I’m not super interested in playing them, but I like watching them. My favorite sport to watch would be soccer. I loved to play baseball, but I don’t really care to watch it anymore. I also like to watch the Packers.”
How about a high school sport you wish you would have done?
“I did wrestling for a short period of time when I was younger, so maybe that would have been fun.”
How about a favorite family vacation?
“My family and I like to go to Chicago – It’s probably my favorite city. I like it because it’s close by, but it’s still a cultural center of the United States. I have an uncle who works there. I’d love to live there possibly someday, but I don’t want to plan out my life too much at this point. Wherever I end up is where I’ll be. I’ve also visited Ireland and France.”
Were you ever in band?
“I was in band my freshman through junior year – I played the clarinet. I didn’t continue this year because I didn’t have time with all the other activities I do.”
What is something about you most people wouldn’t know?
“I am a pretty open person, so I’m not sure there is anything most people wouldn’t know about me.”
Since we are talking on Halloween, did you go trick-or-treating?
“I did not. I wanted to, but I was a bit too busy.”
If you had gone, what would you have dressed up like?
“Probably a demon.”
What three words best describe you?
“Pensive, passionate, playful.”
