What is the most influential book you have read besides the Bible? Why?
The most influential book that I have read was The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah. This book made me realize how powerful women are and how we should always help our neighbor out and treat everyone with kindness.
What is your favorite or funniest moment at Geneva?
The one thing I will never forgive my parents for is making me drive a 2000 Honda Accord to school. One morning, I was taking Kevin Vogt and my little brother, Josh to school and my car engine started smoking. I thought nothing of it, so I kept driving until smoke started coming through the air vents. Then, I had to pull over in front of the Erfurt’s house. We were just standing while every single Geneva car was passing by. Thankfully, Senora Benz came and saved us. I look back at that now and laugh, but in the moment, it was so embarrassing.
What will you miss most when you leave Geneva?
I will miss having the teachers being my number one supporter, besides my parents.
Who has influenced you most while at Geneva, How?
Mrs. Greenlees has influenced me the most because she always encouraged me to work hard and never give up. She always told me I can reach the goals I set for myself, even if they seem impossible to reach.
What does being a Geneva student mean to you?
A Geneva student is someone who carries a heart burning for the Lord and is obviously super quirky.
How would you encourage a Geneva kindergartner to persevere?
I would tell them that it’s not always the grade that matters, but how much work and effort you put into it because in the long run that’s what teaches you a life lesson and makes you want to work harder in life. I would also tell them that one grade does not define who you are.
What about Geneva do you hope never changes?
I hope the fun atmosphere that Geneva creates never changes. I hope everybody is still able to express themselves and are not afraid to be weird.
