This week a sophomore, by the name of Eferin Burns, will be interviewed as he was selected as the student of the week this week. Since the start of freshman year, he has been most known for playing football. Also selected for being very caring to everyone in the Dominican community, he is academically dedicated. Eferin’s teachers think of him in the same manner especially this past month of sophomore year. Interviewed by two of his fans, this is how the former football player responded.
- What has been your favorite part of Dominican High School so far this year?
I think my favorite thing about Dominican this year, has to be that I am not a freshman anymore. We were always like the last ones, the babies and now we are a little bit older.
- Which class has been the most challenging for you?
Chemistry with Ms. Senn has to be one of those more difficult classes for me. The things that we are learning is very confusing and precise.
- What is your favorite sport?
My favorite sport is basketball.
- Do you attend any Dominican games?
Yes, I play football and basketball so I attend those and some volleyball games.
- How have you been able to keep up with all your homework and games?
I think that I limit myself with my free time, because who doesn’t just like to have fun and not worry about school right? So I usually try and get most if not all my homework done during my third hour study hall. Then if I still have a lot, I won’t go to the games unless they fall on a Friday.
- What differentiates the Dominican community from all others?
I think that the people here make the atmosphere feel way more different than in any other school. The teachers are always willing to help, and the students are too. We all try to share our gifts so this makes the community a bit stronger and distinct from others.
- If you could change one thing about Dominican what would it be?
If I could change one thing about Dominican it would probably be the lunch prices. Usually things aren’t extremely expensive but they do add up once in a while.
8.How many sports do you play?
Currently I play football. I will play basketball when the season begins and maybe do track.
9.What is your favorite color?
My favorite color is green.
- If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be? And why?
If I could travel anywhere I would probably go to Spain, because I think that the people there speak very interestingly.
