Grade: graduated senior
Family members: Seven rambunctious siblings, one graceful mother and one tenacious stepfather make the whole of my family.
Favorite subject: One of my favorite subjects would have to be psychology, because of both its complexity and simplicity relating to the brains of humans and animals. Another of my favorite subjects is forensic science, for a very similar reason. The intense studies of crime scenes and the simple striving for justice have always caught my attention.
