Q & A with Johanna...

What advice would you give to prospective students?
Just breathe. Take your senior year seriously, but also remember to enjoy your last year in high school! God will be with you wherever you decide to go. Also, make informed decisions. Don't just fall in love with a school's website—make sure you visit the school you plan to attend ahead of time. Have fun and take Dory's advice to "just keep swimming."
How do you spend your free time?
Most weekends you can find me at Disneyland with my friends, eating cream cheese-filled pretzels, and drinking Jamba Juice. I love baking cupcakes with my sister, hanging out at Starbucks, and catching up on The Office and Modern Family. During the summer, I love bonfires, eating sushi, and kayaking around Balboa Island!
