“I liked going to the beaches and how friendly the people were,” Gloria Avila a senior said about visiting Mexico.

This semester she chose to take Anatomy and Advanced Art along with the standard Government and English. Her favorite class is Advanced Art. She said Art is relaxing.

Mr. Anderson and Mr. Carstensen tied for her favorite teacher.

“I have learned a lot from both of them,” Avila said. For extracurricular activities, Avila participates in Art Club and Hispanic Organization.

Avila has worked at Dos Amigos restaurant for the past two years but will soon be moving to Reno. She enjoyed meeting people from different places during work.

She most admires her best friend for learning from his mistakes, getting up, and trying harder. He has supported her through a lot of different things and is always there to talk to.

When she is not working or at school, she likes to watch “House” and “Scrubs”. Her favorite author is Stephanie Meyer (author of the Twilight series.) A huge pet peeve that Gloria has is the touch and sound of cotton.

She is going to pursue a bachelor’s degree in Radiology to become a radiology technician. She will be moving to Reno this year to take her prerequisite classes at TMCC. Next year her destination will be Denver, Colorado to finish her schooling. She is very proud of herself because she will be the first person in her family to go to college.

In ten years Gloria wants to own a ranch with horses while practicing radiology and photography.

“I want to travel and take pictures of landscapes,” Avila said.

In her free time, she would also like to teach an art class. Her best advice for incoming freshmen is, “it will be hard but keep trying, do your best, and don’t ditch.”
