What is the most influential book you have read besides the Bible? Why?
Silence because it left such a big impact on me and made me think of my faith in a different way than I ever had before.
What is your favorite or funniest moment at Geneva?
One of my favorite moments at Geneva was riding back on the choir bus after contest eating donuts and talking with my friends and listening back to our recordings. I’m not sure why, but that will always be a moment that just sticks with me.
What will you miss most when you leave Geneva?
I will miss the incorporation of Christianity into my education, and I will miss the close relationships I am able to have with the teachers at Geneva.
Who has influenced you most while at Geneva? How?
Probably Mr. Vis because I have had so many eye-opening conversations in his room while in choir and study hall. He took the time to hear me out and have an actual intelligent conversation with me rather than treating me like a kid who doesn’t know what they’re talking about. He has always been there to support me and talk to me when I needed it and I was so grateful to have that person.
What does being a Geneva student mean to you?
It means to try and be the best Christian I can be and to let that lead me in all aspects of my life as a student, whether it be in my academics or how I interact with the people around me. Also, to try and hold myself up to the standard that I signed at the beginning of the year.
How would you encourage a Geneva kindergartener to persevere in school?
I would tell them to set goals. It could be a big goal like getting an awesome grade on a test or a little goal like making sure to turn your homework in on time. Whatever it is, those goals no matter how small will push you to achieve them and keep going.
What about Geneva do you hope never changes?
I hope that the standards Geneva has set will never go away. Having a standard to hold myself up to made a large impact on my education and made my work ethic what it is.
