Top state winners: Morghan Neuhofer and Brianna Thomson, sophomores at South Lake High School in Groveland, recently placed third at the 2016 Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) State Leadership Conference with their Certified Emergency Response Team (CERT) skills.
One of my passions: I love reading books. I’ll read any genre, I just like to read.
Favorite subject: Probably health science. I like to learn about how our bodies are made and how they work. I also like to learn about how problems would be solved, and how to help people.
An exciting moment: This would be when we won for our HOSA competition, CERT. I wasn’t actually at the awards, I was at Navy Ball (for ROTC), but Brianna (my teammate) was, and when she called me to tell me that we had won, I was super excited. Neither of us were actually expecting to win.
Best advice ever received: From my dad, he told me to always stick to my family and God, because those two things will get me through anything.
Role models in life: My mom, my dad, and my older sister, Maryn.
If I could trade places with someone for a day: I don’t really know. Probably someone rich, like Steve Jobs, so I could put some of their money in my bank account. But other than that, there’s nobody else I really want to be.
Goals and dreams: I want to go to UF, and either be an ophthalmologist, or some other type of doctor, or do something in the agriculture field. I also want to own a nice house, and own some land, maybe near the beach.
Credit my success to: My parents for always encouraging me to do my best and apply myself to whatever I choose to do, and God for blessing me with my life, and my skills.
