Q: What grade are you in?

A: I'm a senior at Emmaus High School.

Q: What is your favorite subject? Why?

A: My favorite subject has always been English because I love to read and analyze books and then debate their meanings with my classmates. In addition, I think the themes conveyed in literature are excellent looking glasses into the larger issues of the world and I enjoy being able to read something on a page and relate it to real life situations.
