Susanna Rivera is a Junior here at George Ranch High School. She is a very hard working student who has a deep heart for others. With her great, funny personality, The Wrangler knew they had to interview her.

The Wrangler: What are you looking forward to the most in your Junior year?

Rivera: Surprisingly enough I’m looking forward to the challenge of it. A lot of people say that junior year is like really tough, and I can already tell its getting tough because there’s a lot of homework But I’m still looking forward to it. It’s like you get through this and then you have senior year to look forward to.

The Wrangler: Is there a certain thing you are nervous about?

Rivera: Probably that I’m taking more Pre-ap classes than I did most my years, so that’s probably one thing I’m nervous about. A little bit of band too ’cause that’s a little hard.

The Wrangler: So, how is it going in band? is this your first year?

Rivera: No, no I haven’t. I just joined this year, so I’m kind of like learning. But, the leaders are really good at what they do, so they’ve been like teaching me. I play the clarinet, and I’ve been getting better at marching. They’re just taking their time on me at playing because I haven’t stopped to learn the music.

The Wrangler: Can you tell me about one of your favorite memories?

Rivera: Probably one of my most favorite memories was December 18, 2015 at the state football game. It was my first football game. I really  enjoyed the people I was around and I even got to be in the stands where the band was playing, which is part of the reason I joined this year.

The Wrangler: Who is the person you look up to the most? 

Rivera: I can’t say it’s one person, but the band leaders. I really look up to them ’cause they’re all really enthusiastic and they are all just ready to do stuff. I hardly ever see them, you know, complain. They’re just always ready to work, and that inspires me like “Oh! I got to keep working” and like “I can be like that”.

The Wrangler: What are some other things you like to do?

Rivera: I really like to go to my youth group a lot, like hang-out with them. It’s a group I go to every Sunday and Wednesday where we have fellowship and learn about Christ. We normally start off with a sermon from our youth pastor, Leo, who actually comes to the school every Friday morning to also preach to the prayer squad, which is a club at school. We also play games, watch movies, and bake bread together.

The Wrangler: Can you tell me about some of the activities your youth group does?

Rivera: On certain days we do charity work. Like the first week of the month, we do this thing called the Obadiah project. People come in and we set up food and hand it out to them in like lots, and yeah we do work like that. Other days we just hang out like on Wednesdays. We meet every Wednesday and Sunday mornings. We just mostly hang out, and we also have our youth pastor, Leo, teach a lesson.

The Wrangler: what really pulls you towards that youth group, like, what makes it so much fun?

Rivera: They are all like super nice. I never really find genuine people. I used to be home schooled and a lot of them were home schooled too, and I kind of just knew them from the past.  They’re just really super nice people.

The Wrangler: Can you tell me about some of the places you’ve traveled with your group?

Rivera: We go camping. Like, in the summer we go to Camp Revive. We’ll have other camp outs that we’ve done before outside of group camp things, and we go to other events like the movies.

The Wrangler: Can you tell me about your plans for the future?

Rivera: I’m thinking something engineering related because I like math and science.
