What is the best part about being a Chippewa?
TH: I like that you can get involved in anything you want here, and if they don’t offer it here you can make something on your own.
Who is your role model?
TH: My parents. They know the ins and outs of me. They know when something is wrong. They know me better than I know myself.
What is the best piece of advice you have ever gotten?
TH: You never fail until you quit. Keep trying and eventually you will succeed.
What is the nicest thing anyone has ever done for you?
TH: I broke my leg my senior year of high school, and one of my old high school friends pushed me around in a wheelchair for three months before I was able to wear a boot or use crutches.
