Student Spotlight: Clio Herbert

Name, age, grade, city of residence:
Clio Herbert, 18, senior, Santa Cruz
What inspires you? 
I’m inspired by the amazing things other people have accomplished.
What is your favorite subject in school, and why? 
I love art. However, as Mount Madonna School juniors and seniors don’t have art class, I would have to say history, because we can always learn from the past.
If you had the power to change one thing in the world, what would it be? 
I would give everyone an equal opportunity to learn.
If you could go anywhere, where would you go?
I would buy a plane ticket and travel around the world.
Name one big challenge in your life right now:
Focusing on keeping myself motivated about school. I can’t wait to graduate.
What is your dream job?
My current dream job is creating and designing jewelry.
What are your three favorite things?
Clouds, friends and cake!
Favorite book:
The Abhorsen Trilogy by Garth Nix
What do you want to do after high school?
Most likely go to college and then live a life which I truly enjoy.
Something that makes you smile:
My friends!
A favorite MMS memory – and why?

Our South Africa trip last summer and our annual high school river rafting trip were both great bonding experiences. As a new student last school year, the rafting trip was a really nice way to get to know my class.
