What is your favorite place to visit in Portland and why?
“My favorite place to visit in Portland is the Reed Canyon at Reed College. I have so many good memories of early morning walks with my family and long days exploring with my friends. There are so many places to discover.”
What are you most proud of during your high school career?
“I’m most proud of the community I’ve found within the school. The relationships I’ve formed with my teachers and mentors, the friendships I’ve created, and the incredible people I’ve met. They have made my time at Cleveland so amazing.”
What is your favorite Rose Festival event and why?
“My favorite Rose Festival event is easily the Starlight Parade. I have so many amazing memories of waiting for hours with my family, as the vendors would be selling toys for the kids, so we could get a front row seat. By the end of the parade at least one of my siblings (including myself) would be out cold. The parade is so fun to watch and the floats are always absolutely stunning and magical.”
