La Soknisa (Lisa, Academic Year 2023-2024) – One Unforgettable Journey.
Favorite Quote: Be yourself; everyone else is already taken. – Oscar Wilde
An interesting fact about Soknisa is that her hair gets curlier as she ages. Some of her favorite memories from her time at AUPPHS-FA include the exchange program to Foxcroft Academy in the US and the senior trip to Siem Reap with her friends. She would occasionally sell La Pops popsicles at events as an extracurricular activity. Lisa’s favorite subject in school is AP Biology because she enjoys learning about the intricacy of living organisms and their interactions with each other and their environment. A subject she finds most challenging is AP Physics due to its conceptual aspect and the abundance of formulas.
Lisa believes that Biology is the subject that will prepare her for her future career as a Flavorist in the science department. After graduation, she plans on finding a well-paying job and traveling the world. An important lesson that Lisa has learned and wants to share with future generations is to “Start your academic comeback at the beginning of the school year, not the middle.”
