What would be one memory from high school that you would include in a time capsule? Graduation is one memory that I would include in a time capsule. I can look back at my graduation and think about all the great things I’ve accomplished in my senior year at an American high school.

What is one thing you learned from a teacher that you will never forget? Never give up, no matter how hard it its you just have to keep on trying until you get it.

Greatest Accomplishment: My greatest accomplishment would be doing an exchange year. I moved away from everything safe and left all my friends and family to move on the other side of the world for 10 months. There has been ups and downs but I have made so many memories and gotten to know so many amazing people so I would never regret doing this.

Advice to Underclass: Make the best out of your last senior year! You’re never going to experience something like this again so why don’t make it as good as possible?

Future Plans: In Norway, we have 13 years of school so I will have to finish my last year and graduate in Norway. Later I want to join the military for a year. Moving back to the U.S has also been something I’ve been thinking about doing and finishing college in U.S
