Goals & Aspirations: “My goal is to graduate in four years from the University of Nevada Reno and then move on to medical school to later become a physical therapist or pharmacist. I hope to be on track to having a successful career.”

Accomplishments Most Proud Of: “An accomplishment I am most proud of is being able to graduate with an Advanced Honors diploma. Receiving this diploma helps me reflect on all the effort I have put forth throughout my four years of high school.”

Erica Looks Up To: “I look up to my big brother Alex. Alex always knows how to motivate me and keep me on the right path. He is able to show me ways to not give up on anything, even though I may not succeed at first. He not only shows me how to do better in school, but how to be an all around better person as well.”

Erica is Stronger and Wiser Because: “High school as a whole has made me into a stronger person. I have overcome the thought of always wanting to fit in and realizing in the end that it doesn’t matter. Instead of worrying about always fitting in, you can focus on what is going to benefit you in the future.”
