A: To go on to college and create my legacy by being myself and staying involved.

Q: What is your favorite class or favorite subject? Favorite teacher?
A: That's a hard question because there are so many great teachers and classes at Naz. I would have to say one of my favorite subjects is math because it comes naturally to me and I enjoy it, but I do have other classes that I also like a lot.
Q: What is your favorite social media?
A: I really only have Facebook. I like it because it can be used in so many ways. It's not just for staying in contact with friends and family, but great for promotion. For example, I now have my own page called Lucas Stimach Design that has my artwork.
Q: What is one thing someone wouldn’t expect to know about you?
