Plans after high school Business degree and church mission
Guilty pleasure I would spend an entire Saturday in bed, if I could.
Challenges Finishing up high school while also running a business. It’s hard work and I feel like I’m pretty busy for a 17-year-old.
No. 1 thing you learned in high school Respect adults. I’m glad I was able to make friends with teachers and administrators. It added to my high school experience.
Biggest pressure To make myself proud.
Best advice you’ve received To not take advice from anyone who isn’t where you want to be.
Stress management Spend time with loved ones and friends. Have positive thoughts and actions. Life gets hard, but you might as well make the best of it while you can.
Kaden, how will you change the world? By spreading light and kindness … no matter what.
