“School basically [is on my mind]. I have so much stuff piled up my back. SAT, studying. I have tennis, presentations for my sister’s school and all of this school stuff going on. She’s deaf [my sister], so am I. So for her school, I do these presentations for her whole class about her disability and about this microphone that goes on in her class. If they’re wondering about what the microphone is in their classroom that the teacher wears, then I talk about it for other kids to learn about this stuff. I mean, it feels really good. It feels really nice to be presenting something to my sister and her class. It impacts her in a way that she knows I’m gonna be strong for her. That way, when she gets older, she gets to do this kind of stuff for other younger kids. It’s really nice to have that connection.”
