Biographical statement

I have lived in Randolph for seven years after moving from Dorchester in 2012. I have a four-year-old brother named Michael Jr. along with two wonderful parents named Michael and Sarenda. When I was 10 years old, I took part in a church youth group called Pathfinders and I am actively taking private piano lessons which has lasted around six years. I was in private school for my whole elementary and middle school apart from the fifth grade and I played soccer in eighth grade.

Career goals

The current vocation I am studying at BHR is Engineering so I am hoping to become some sort of engineer.

What BHR has done for you

BHR has provided an exemplary school and work environment as I can study in academics as well as fitting in a vocation to prepare for the professional environment in the future.

Why you came to BHR instead of going to your local high school

I came to BHR instead of my local high school due to the opportunities involved, recommendations given, and convenience.

A quotation that inspires you or that you live by

“If I cannot do great things, I can do small things in a great way.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

Your favorite book or movie

My favorite movie currently is “Avengers: Endgame.”

Best advice you ever received from a teacher/parent/family member/friend

Whenever my dad saw me slacking, he would often ask me a simple question, which was, “Are you a student?” After I answered he would back it up saying, “If you are a student then you have to study. A student’s job is to study.” This is some of the best advice I have received.

Advice you would give to a grade 8 student applying to BHR

I would tell anybody going into the ninth grade to study and finish all your work on time since high school grades are super important, especially if you want to get a scholarship to a good college.

Teacher or faculty member at BHR who has helped or inspired you the mostMy technical program teachers, Mr. Hamill and Mrs. Hardy, have helped me learn so much in Engineering. Everything I learned in there is credited to them.

Who is your hero

My parents.

Most memorable moment at BHR
