Tell us about the teacher, coach or administrator who made a difference in your life: I am forever indebted to my former cheer coach, Mrs. Lin Schuster, who taught me the importance of discipline, commitment, integrity and teamwork. She also helped me to recognize my talents and encouraged me to pursue a leadership role on my cheer team. Through her love, kindness and unwavering support, I became a better version of myself.
