Leadership Role: 2021-22 Co-President, Student Government Association
Started at Burke: 9th Grade
Favorite tradition: "Blackout night! It is a fun and energetic atmosphere to be in. Playing in the basketball games against [longtime rival] Field and seeing our Burke community shouting and supporting you – it’s a great feeling."
Building independence: "I have been able to make my own choices by choosing what classes I want to take and joining different clubs – that’s why I have chosen the Young Black Men club. One of Burke’s big factors is giving us the freedom to be ourselves."
Teacher shout-out: "Morgan [Science Department] because she is very supportive and helpful to all students."
