My favourite memory

Just being a student at ASU Prep Digital is an unforgettable memory. Even though I only joined ASU Prep this year, it treated me like family and gave me a flexible and stress-free schedule. I enjoyed taking my courses while having long hours of sleep and working as a part-time tutor. I also love taking concurrent courses because they gave me a better perspective of a college student’s life. Moreover, joining the Here4U club is one of my favorite experiences at ASU Prep Digital because I gained confidence and built amazing friendships with my club peers.

People I'd like to thank

Firstly, I would like to thank my family and friends for their continuous love, support, and appreciation. I will never forget how they are always there to assist and inspire me in everything. They are the reason why I never give up on pursuing my goals and dreams. Secondly, I would like to thank my LSC, Mrs. Grant, and my teachers from ASU Prep Digital (Ms. Velez, Mrs. Carr from Psychology class, Dr. Jones, Ms. Carr from English class, Mrs. Albers, Dr. Belcher, Mr. Wolcott, Ms. Iannucci, Dr. Sirotkin, Mrs. Hamilton) and North Phoenix Prep (especially Sra. Pagnone, Dr. Cort, Mr. Boyer, and Mrs. Humphrey) for always offering help, recognizing my hard work, and keeping me motivated. I truly appreciate their effort in giving me a bright and successful future. I would also like to thank Mrs. Pooja of Kumon. Lastly, I would like to thank BTS for keeping me positive and happy.

from ASU Prep Digital was my first day. I had just started attending ASU Prep Digital my senior year. As someone who moved a lot and dealt with many ‘first days’ at many new schools, my first day at ASU Prep Digital was relaxing and accommodating to my schedule. Even during quarantine, my teachers at ASU Prep Digital made me feel comfortable and helped me with anything that I needed.

People I'd like to thank

My learning success coach, Jessica Grant, for making my experience easier. I also want to thank my teachers (Mrs. Hodges, Mrs. Hamilton, Mrs. Wurmlinger, and Mrs. Elbert) for both helping me when I needed it and giving me detailed advice on how I can do better.

My favourite memory

I have so many, most of them revolving around times when ASUPD made me feel special and significant, not a little fish in a big pond of students but a valued member of our school. My education was so incredibly personalized and I was given so many crazy experiences through ASU Prep. My favorite was when I got to have a Student Spotlight video! I took the camera crew to my favorite parts of my city, showed them my daily life as a violinist, and shared all my secrets to being a successful online student 😉 That video will be a special keepsake of my high school years for me forever! Plus, I can think of at least 3 or 4 families who have told me they started attending ASUPD because of that video!! It’s been an honor to be an ambassador for our school and I can’t wait to continue to be one throughout my time at ASU.

People I'd like to thank

My amazing LSC Karen Sanderson for helping me graduate an entire year and a half early; all my teachers who met with me outside of class and within minutes answered my desperate “I have no idea what I’m doing!!” texts; my family; and most of all, my mom for instilling in me a love of learning and being my teacher for my entire childhood. I wouldn’t be pursuing my dream without her unfailing help. Love you mom, and can’t wait to keep learning from you for years to come!!
