What is one highlight of the philosophy club?
“We talk about different philosophical subjects, we come up with different ideas.”
Do you have a quote that you live by?

“I feel like the way that I live my life is a culmination of different philosophies, not just one. I think they are all valuable in their own way. Even if I don’t agree with something, I’ll find value in it.”

If you were in front of a large group of people and you had one piece of advice to give to them,  what would you say?

    
“I probably wouldn’t say anything; it’s a large group of people. I’m not very good at talking to large groups so I would just stand there and be like ‘hey’.”

"Don’t second guess yourself, always go for the goal, try new things, don’t hold back. Just try new things because you cant go through life thinking, “oh I wish I did this and that” you should look back at your life and think ‘oh wow I did all of what I could have possibly done. Just enjoy it.”
Is there any reason you would say that?

I got the chance to go skydiving and I turned it down and it wouldn’t been great to tell my future children.”

What would you say is the best decision you made so far?

“Breaking out of my shell a little bit, I’m pretty shy in general so joining the fire service was the best things I ever did. It gave me the strength to do other things and to make other important decisions in my life. I just moved down here and I don’t think I would be on this path if I didn’t take that step to become a firefighter, even if it was terrifying.”

What are you majoring in?
"Engineering. I wanted to design buildings and learn how to work on different types of technologies, and a big thing about that was taking physics in high school. We had a project where we had to build a bridge out of popsicle sticks, and I was able to build a bridge that could hold 100 pounds and I thought well if I could that then maybe I could go into engineering."
