Q: What made you decide to play the banjo?
“It’s always been an appealing instrument to me. I picked it up when I was in high school. I’ve kind of had it sitting around, so I took Blue Grass Ensemble to learn how to play better.”
—Ashleigh McCann, Fine Arts, Senior
Q: What is your greatest accomplishment?
“My biggest accomplishment, I would think, is becoming an optimistic and outgoing person. I used to be really introverted and super quiet, especially when it came to big groups of people. Now I’m not scared to be who I am, and I think that is the greatest accomplishment.”
—Madi Stephan, Communication, Sophomore
Q: How is school in Taiwan?
“We have tons of tests every day. All we do is study, study, study. In high school, I went to school at 6:15 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. or even 7 p.m. when I was a senior. We also treated our teachers way different than here. We respect our teachers; we don’t talk to them like they are friends.
—Yin Yin Chen, Business Management, Sophomore
