Do you/ did you have a part-time job? I have a part-time job as a babysitter.
Your typical day during Covid-19: Before the leaving cert got cancelled I had online classes most of the school day and I also tried to go for a daily walk or run. Now I try to workout in the mornings, or go for a run. To try and past the time during the day I’ve been baking and
spending a lot more of my time with my family and on my phone watching Tik Toks.

Your plan after secondary school: I’m hoping to go to Maynooth University to study primary
school teaching or go to UCD to do an arts degree in English, Film and Drama Studies.
Your thoughts on predictive grades: I think this is the fairest option for the government to
take. I’m fairly confident I’ll get the points I need but I like the fact that we have the option to
resist any subject we are not happy with.
