All BFA Fairfax Seniors were invited to participate in a virtual interview for the blog. Today we are happy to celebrate graduating senior Abby Sweet.
When did you start school at BFA?
I started school at BFA in 7th grade transferring from Fletcher Elementary School.
What is your favorite memory about your time at BFA?
I don’t have one specific memory from my time at BFA, but I have many. I loved playing sports, hanging out with my friends before and after classes, and talking with teachers about a variety of things.
What are your plans after graduation?
After graduation I will be going to the University of Vermont as a Mathematics Major.
Do you want to give a “shout-out” to one of your teachers? Who and why?
If I had to shout out any of my teachers it would be my advisor Mrs. Fink. She has been there for me since I started high school, and helped me with everything from college essays to helping me realize I really liked math and wanted to continue learning it.
Which changes since COVID-19 closed schools have caused the greatest stress?
One thing that caused me stress was studying for AP exams at home. Another thing was starting my summer job again while I was “in-school.”
Which changes have led to some relief of stress?
I now don’t have to worry about waking up late and being late for school, which stops a lot of my morning stress.
Which people/relationships are helping you through this time?
My friends have been helping me through this time a lot, especially since we are all feeling the same thing together, along with my family for having to put up with me all the time now!
What are you doing to maintain connections with school friends, particularly the members of your senior class during school closure?
My friends and I have Zoom calls and talk almost like we would at school. We also go outside and social distance while hanging out, which is fun and sad at the same time.
