Q: What are you most concerned about in heading off to college and preparing for your career?
A: I am most concerned about fully deciding what I want to major in. I'm pretty sure I want to major in graphic design, but I'm not 100 percent sure. I know that God will help me figure everything out though, so I'm not going to stress about it.
Q: What will you miss most about Tonganoxie?
A: I will miss the tight community here. You can tell that people truly care about each other in this town. In Tonganoxie you feel like you know just about everyone, and I will be moving to Manhattan, where I only know a handful of people.
