10 Questions with Urooj Hashmi


Written by Lillian Tan

With spring break just around the corner, Sophmore Urooj Hashmi will be taking midterms on Thursday and Friday March 2023 as the school term wraps up.

Q: How do you think this week will be for you?

A: Exams are coming in a few days and I’m somewhat worried for my Math and English midterms. I don’t think I feel that positive about this week so I’ll be celebrating after the end of midterms.

Q: How are you preparing for midterms?

A: There are practice tests for one of my classes and a review for two others. For English there’s nothing I can do but pray I’ll get a good grade.

Q: What’s your strongest and weakest subjects?

A: My strongest subjects are Math and Science, my weakest subject is English, and Social Studies is near the middle.

Q: What are you planning on doing over spring break?

A: Over spring break I’ll be taking a dual credit class and therefore, will suffer the first month of the break. That said, my family and I may visit our cousins in the second and third months.

Q: Why do you think some teacher’s give work over spring break?

A: Some teachers may give work to students over Spring Break so their knowledge of subjects don’t fade throughout the months. As a result, students have a easier time learning when they come back from the break.

Q: What are your goals for next term?

A: My goal is to get a higher grade in English and keep my good grades for the rest of my classes.

Q: How have you grown as a person since last semester?

A: I’ve become somewhat more organized this semester.

Q: What was your most favorite memory of this term?

A: I had a lot of fun memories in all classes and my favorite memory isn’t too specific but more on the fun time I spent with my friends in class.

Q: How do you feel about the upcoming summer break?

A: I’m very excited to have to sleep and not worry about work as much.

Q: How do you feel knowing that you’re going to be a Junior next school year?

A: I have complicated feelings about next year. Since I decided to take all AP core classes I’m very worried about being able to manage all of them.
