Although senior year looked different from what Angelina Buysse expected, she didn’t let that get in her way. Throughout the pandemic, she continued to work as the treasurer for the class of 2021, a Hornet Ambassador, and a member of NHS. Buysse strives to shoot for the stars and has big dreams of getting to work on a rocket or becoming an astronaut.

In the fall, Buysse plans to attend Embry–Riddle Aeronautical University for aerospace engineering.

Stinger: What made you decide to be a class officer?

Buysse: It was definitely just a random idea I had freshman year because I wanted to be involved with important decisions, and I loved being in leadership positions. I decided to go for the treasurer position because I like math and it wouldn’t be as competitive as the president or vice president positions.

Stinger: Favorite part about being a class officer?

Buysse: My favorite part about being a class officer is definitely getting to work alongside the other officers. I feel like even with the changes to the crew every year we are all able to come together and do some great things. The senior officers are really giving it our all this year, and I am so proud of us.

Stinger: What’s a song that describesvyour high school career?

Buysse:  “Time of Our Lives” by Pitbull for three reasons. High school was amazing and awful at the same time, and I feel like this song really covers that. It’s also an absolute banger, and I love Mr. Worldwide.

Stinger: Where was your favorite place at EHS?

Buysse: I loved my physics classroom my junior year before COVID. That class was always fun and never disappointed me. I love that one courtyard with the outdoor classroom; I’m a sucker for pretty trees.

Stinger: If you could go back and change one thing, what would it be?

Buysse: I don’t think I would want to change anything, but I would kill to relive another school dance. Even if they were painful, they were my favorite.

Stinger: Scale of one to ten, how much senioritis have you been experiencing?

Buysse: I promise it’s only like a 5/10. I have AP tests to prepare for so I can’t give in.

Stinger: Favorite school lunch food?

Buysse: I love the pizza; don’t ask me why because I don’t know.

Stinger: What was one of the most important lessons you learned during high school?

Buysse: I learned that you should always do whatever is best for you at the moment. Maybe your best one day is just being able to get out of bed or maybe it’s getting all of your homework done in one sitting. Whatever it is, as long as it’s the best you can do for yourself in that instance, then it’s okay.
