    Next year, I’m going to UNR to study bio-technology. Both my Mom and my brother passed away due to cancer, so cancer research was always a part of my life… All of that made me want to focus on it and do my part, for what I could.”

    Principal Matt Burak: “Andrew doesn’t talk, but he speaks volumes with his facial expressions. He’s one of the most pleasant kids in the entire school. He has an enchanting smile, and I think the staff just adores Andrew.”

    “I’ve enjoyed the teachers. They’re so much help. They work with your schedule. It’s really great to know that even if you make a little mistake, they’re there to help you—it’s not a big deal. It’s really fantastic to know that I can come to school and feel wanted.”

    I plan on doing either of two options: One is to become a prosthetist, which is someone who deals with people who have lost limbs from war or an accident. And then my other option would probably be to become a motivational speaker, go and travel the world and tell people my story.”;

     “The most challenging thing would probably be all the homework I had. Sometimes I would stay up until 2 in the morning, finishing assignments. But it was worth it.”

    “I’ve always been interested in sciences, medical and biology and all that, so it’s something that just kind of interests me. Here on the school front, I have help from all of my teachers. All of my teachers have been incredibly helpful. I definitely wouldn’t be here today if it wasn’t for their help.”
