SENIOR SPOTLIGHT: Zakariya Ali
Tell me about yourself. When did you come to PVS? What are your hobbies and interests?
I came to PVS in November of 2018 right after arriving from Africa. After COVID hit, I had the opportunity to explore one of my interests further: art and painting.
How has COVID-19 impacted your senior year?
COVID has made a big impact on my junior year and senior year. I’ve missed out on a lot of time together with my friends and the experience high school has to offer. Thankfully the teachers have tried their best to compensate, and for that I am appreciative.
What is the worst and best thing about being a senior?
Being a senior is bittersweet. On one hand I’m going to be an adult and be able to be more independent and have more choices over my life. On the other hand I will have to say goodbye to many of my dear friends.
What do you hope to accomplish throughout or by the end of your senior year?
I hope to be in the best shape in my life and get better at drawing.
Who is your biggest hero/role model and why?
My role model is the Prophet Muhammad because his way of life is the best you can follow.
What will you miss most about your time at PVS?
I will miss the close-knit community in the school and how the teachers give each individual student their time.
What are your plans for college/after graduation?
I plan on studying to be a Radiation Therapist.
What advice do you have for the underclassmen?
Keep up your studying and make sure to cherish the time with your friends.
