SENIOR SPOTLIGHT: Mohammad Taysir
Tell me about yourself. When did you come to PVS?
My name is Mohammad Taysir. I am a first-generation Palestinian-American. I came to PVS in 2008.
What are your hobbies and interests?
I really enjoy sports such as basketball and soccer as well as most outdoor activities.
What is the worst and best thing about being a senior?
The worst thing about being a senior is the stress that comes with the college search. At the same time, the best thing about being a senior is the excitement that comes with the college search.
Are you looking forward to returning on-site for your senior year?
Who is your biggest hero/role model and why?
My biggest role model is my father. He came to this country alone as a teenager with nothing. He turned himself into a profitable businessman and a devoted Muslim and father.
If you could go back and change one thing, what would it be?
I would definitely have taken the ACT several more times than I did, so that I would not have to worry about it as a senior.
What will you miss most about your time at PVS?
I will miss being in a Muslim environment that values Islamic rule and instructions.
What are your plans for college/after graduation?
I wish I knew the answer to that question.
How do you intend to use what you have learned in PVS to benefit you as you go throughout the course of your life?
PVS taught me the majority of what I know about Islam today. I will certainly use that throughout my life.
What advice do you have for the underclassmen?
Your GPA matters a lot more than you think. Start taking the ACT in 8th or 9th grade so you have a headstart on the very stressful college application process.
