To get to know Valeria a little more, we asked her the following questions: 

What are your hobbies and/or what do you like to do in your free time? During my free time, I like to practice volleyball, study, and hangout with family and friends.

What is your favorite subject in school and why? My favorite subject in school is Algebra. This is because I have always   worked very well with numbers, and math has always been very fun to me. 

What do you love most about your school and why? I love all the amazing bonds I have built here at Lakeview Middle School. I’m so thankful to have met such wonderful people at this school!

What are you looking forward to next year in high school? I’m looking forward to all the opportunities I will get to have for my education, as well as for my athleticism. I’m also looking forward to all the new bonds I will get to create in high school.

Who do you look up to and why? I look up to my older brother, Jacob. He has always been very determined in everything he does, and he is one of the kindest people I know. He makes very smart decisions when it comes to his life, which is what I want to do as well. He’s the person I go to when I need help with anything. I know I can count on him as a friend, not just as a brother!
