Family members: My mom is Kim Kanopka. My sister is Brittany Huber. My dad is Kenan Kanopka Sr.
Favorite subject: My favorite subjects revolve around the maths and sciences. In particular, my favorite classes are the Biomedical Science PL TW courses. These courses provide an opportunity in high school that many kids do not get until college. I also enjoy math, especially my Calculus 3 course at Lafayette, because math has rules and there is almost always an answer.
