Senior Spotlight - Mya Greenfield
1. What are your plans after high school (college, work force, future profession)?
I plan on going to Highland for two years before transferring to a 4 year university. I then want to get a master’s degree in genetics and pursue a career in genetic counseling.
2. What was the biggest change for you between your freshman and senior year?
The biggest change between freshman and senior year has been my confidence. I have become a lot more social and outgoing and a lot less shy and self conscious.
3. Which class challenged you the most and why?
So far, Pre-calc has challenged me the most. I have always struggled with math, and that is the hardest math class I’ve ever taken.
4. What person do you look up to the most and why?
The person I look up to the most is my mother. She has been through a lot of challenges in her life and has always come out on top. She is strong and brave and would do anything for her children. She is one of the main reasons I am who I am today.
5. What will you miss most about Forreston High School?
The thing I will miss the most about Forreston High School is the sense of family. Whether you are friends with everyone or not, Forreston has this weird sense of belonging I haven’t experienced anywhere else.
6. What advice would you give incoming freshmen?
The advice I would give new freshmen is to not be afraid to stand out. High School is about creating an identity for yourself and sometimes you need to leave your comfort zone to do that. Don’t put off joining a sport or talking to a new person just because you’re afraid. You’ll miss so many opportunities if you only think about the “what ifs.”
