Name: Nicholas SallesGrade: 12
Role Model: My role model would have to be my father. He supports me in everything I do and has never stopped believing in me. He has taught me that nothing in life comes easy, and that hard work pays off. I know it sounds cliche, but its absolutely true."When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breath...then you will succeed"Teacher(s) with the most impact: To be honest, they've all had positive influences on me. Every lesson, regardless of its brevity, has shaped the way I think one way or the other. There really isn't a specific subject I enjoy the most but lunch definitely hits the spot (if that even counts as a subject).Activities: Brazilian Jiu-jitsu, Music Producing, Drawing, Watching Wu Xia films, and eating sushi.Future Goals/Plans: Win the 2013 Jiu-Jitsu World championships in my division, attend MTSU in the fall with hopes of double-majoring in both Sound Engineering and Biology, and to continue to produce electronic music under my current record label.Quote: "May you find serenity and tranquility in a world you may not always understand. May the pain you have known and the conflict you have experienced give you the strength to walk through life facing each new situation with courage and optimism. Always know that there are those whose love and understanding will always be there, even when you feel most alone." - unknown
