Tierney Weed

What is something most students wouldn’t know about you?

“I took tap dancing classes all the way through high school. It’s really kind of embarrassing. But I also did jazz dancing, and I was on the dance team for a couple years in high school.”

What is your motto in life?

“‘Do your best and be kind.’ If you do both of those things, then no one can fault you for anything.”

What’s one thing you would tell your high school self that you know now?

“Relax. None of this is going to matter in 10 years. Have fun. Don’t stress about things that aren’t going to be important in 15 years.”

 

 

 


Jonathan Jost

What is something most students wouldn’t know about you?

“I played baritone and trombone in band in high school and also played a little guitar. I really wish I had learned to play piano. Also, my favorite class in high school was AP U.S. History — not a math class.”

What is your motto in life?

“I’m not sure I have a motto. I just try to be a positive person. I really like the quote by John Wooden, ‘If we magnified our blessings the way we magnify our disappointments, we’d all be a lot happier.’”

What’s one thing you would tell your high school self that you know now?

“Listen more to my parents and adults when they gave me advice. A lot of things could have been easier if I had followed some advice from people in my life. I would also tell myself to find things I enjoy and put forth my greatest effort pursuing those things.”


Azie Taghizadeh

What is something most students wouldn’t know about you?

“That I can speak another language fluently — Farsi, the traditional Iranian language [which is] where I’m from.”

What is your motto in life?

“I really believe you have to give your all, so you can live with no regrets. So as long as you can give your best at the things that you do, you can’t look back and wonder, ‘What if?’”

What’s one thing you would tell your high school self that you know now?

“Maybe to try a little bit harder — to make sure that you realize in the end it all will work out, and you don’t have to stress as much.”
