Caroline Junker

Q. Who is in your family?

A. My mother is Julie Kibelbek, my father is Matt Junker, my brother is Eric Junker and our dog is Maisy.

Q. What do you most enjoy about being a senior?

A. I was able to choose a lot of classes that I’m genuinely curious about, and follow up on subjects that I’m interested in. Because of this, I feel more comfortable in engaging in class discussion. I also feel very relaxed about completing projects and homework, which is both good and bad.

Q. What is your favorite subject? Why?
