Five Questions with Mrs. Mak


Leonardo Gonzalez, Sports Writer

1. What song would you say describes your adolescence?

“Bend and Not Break,” by Dashboard Confessional I loved this band and remember listening to their album over and over again!

2. After looking back at your past experiences, what did you learn from them and how did it make you become the person you are today?

Growing up, I learned a lot about friendships. Middle school was really challenging for me and I was “friends” with a few people that ended up not being very nice. I had to learn what makes a good friend and what kind of people I wanted to spend time with. I learned to find people who liked me for who I am and I found friends I was comfortable being myself around. This has changed who I am today and helped me to be more confident in my own skin, and also more accepting of others who need community.

3. What problem in the world would you like to solve?

I have a heart for children. I want all children to be safe, cared for, and loved. No child should have to go hungry, be without a family, or live in fear.

4. If money were no object, what would you be doing with your life?

I would like to travel the world, get to know people from different cultures, and help communities that need support. I would like to work to bring justice and resources to people in need.

5. If you were stuck on a desert island and could only bring three items, what would they be?

A book to read, sunglasses, and my pillow!
