(from left to right, top row to bottom) Amy Z - Interviews Conducted by Anna C, Phoebe S, Celia L-D, and Nora W)
This week, your Humans of CPS Team interviewed one lovely senior— Amy — for our thirteenth week of Seniors of CPS interviews. These interviews include responses to various questions designed to help you get to know our seniors a bit better and to give you some insight into their memories from the past four years at College Prep. We hope you enjoy!
Q: What is something unique about you/a fun fact that your classmates might not know?
Amy: I am very terrified of butterflies, turtles, and fish. So, those are my worst fears in the world. One time, my friends were texting me turtles as a joke to scare me, and I legitimately started tearing up after six photos. And if I see a butterfly, I will run away at sixty miles an hour. Also, I went scuba diving once, so I was surrounded by fish and turtles, and it was one of the scariest experiences of my life.
Q: What is one word you would use to describe your four years at College Prep?
Amy: I would say fusion. I think CPS was a fusion of perspectives and ideas. I got to know so many people, so it was also a fusion of friendships. As a person, it really shaped me, so that’s why I think fusion would be my one word. At the same time, it was diffusion in the sense that I got to share my own ideas, memories, smiles, and laughter with other people.
Q: How would you describe your four years at College Prep and the people that you spent those four years with?
Amy: CPS really changed my perspective, and I learned so many new things. I got to hear so many other peoples’ worldviews, and it was just amazing. I would not change a single thing about my four years at CPS. The people that I spent it with are the kindest, most supportive, and most intelligent people I’ve ever met. It was truly an incredible experience. Although there were ups and downs with this year in general, I still think it’s amazing that we made it through.
