Q: What are your plans after high school?
A: I want to go to a technical school for industrial design.
Q: What is some of the best advice you have ever been given?

Q: What is your favorite subject in school?
A: History. I like learning about the past.
Q: If you could have dinner with anybody, who would it be?
A: Oprah Winfrey. I'd be interested to hear what she has to say.
