What about before senior year?

Staff writer: Jordan VanDyke

Being a junior, I have no idea what I want to do for my senior project yet. I have plenty ideas but still trying to figure it out. I talked to junior, Saony Taveras to see if she how her year is coming along.

I asked Saony,

How are you preparing right now for senior year?

Well I have been thinking about my college plans, so I can better prepare myself for after high school. I am currently trying to decide if I would like to stay in Woodstock or move a little further out. Other than that I have been preparing for my senior project.

Do you have any idea what you want to do for your senior project?

Yes, I do actually. I’m planning on either starting a dance club at Woodstock or going to a studio and finding someone to help me teach a younger dance class. I love dancing and I’m actually thinking about starting my senior project early over the summer.

How are you planning on reaching your goals next year?

I want to get better at scheduling my life and getting better at keeping up with everything, so I have a much higher chance of having a successful senior year.

Do you know what you want to do as a career?

I am very passionate about dancing and teaching, so I would either like to get my teaching degree or open my own dance studio.

Have you thought about options for college yet? If so, where?

Definitely NYU is a dream of mine sine I was a child, I also have had my eye on FSU, or maybe a community college to start out and then move on to a bigger university.

How would you say your junior year is going so far?

I would say Junior year is going very well so far, I am so excited for what’s to come.

Is there anything you definitely want to change next year?

If there was one thing I would have to change, it would probably be my sleeping schedule. I feel like if I changed my sleeping schedule a little bit I could a bit more done.

What courses are you taking next year? The regular basic science, language arts and math classes. Spanish 2 and sociology and psychology.

How do you manage to balance a job and school work?

I get out of school every day, then I head straight to work and change there. On my break I try to complete my homework but, if not then I try to finish what I have left at home after work. Most times it works out pretty well.

What are you most excited about next year?

I’m thinking about going into the military, because I think it would be fun. I also have a lot of special things planned for next year. The military has always been an option for me and I think that it would be a great opportunity.

Do you know when you are going to take the SAT or ACT?

Well I haven’t completely decided what I want to do yet, so it still comes down to which test would benefit me best. I plan to take either one sometime next year though.

Well, compared to others I think Saony is definitely on track for great things. She has plenty of drive and motivation to make her dreams a reality. Hopefully some of your juniors know a little about what you guys want to do! Good luck!
