Freshman Jennifer Serifov.

One may know this Antioch Community High School student’s older sister Fiona Serifov. Just like her big sister, she is on the ACHS cheerleading team and a part of the student council. J. Serifov is also in the ACHS orchestra, plays the violin and volunteers with Antioch Traveling Closet and Fill a Heart 4 Kids. In the future, she aspires to accomplish many of her dreams. 

Q: Where do you hopefully see yourself in 10 years?

A:  “In 10 years, I hope to see myself going to law school. I want to study law when I’m older, but I think 10 years is actually… I don’t know what that is; I think it’s past college. I know that’s long, but I’m not sure exactly how many years now.”

Q: Who is your favorite music artist, and why?

A: “I would say, Taylor Swift, probably, because me and my sister Fiona always listen to her whenever we go places in the car.”

Q: What is your favorite professional sports team? 

A: “To be honest, I have no idea. I really do not pay attention to professionals.”

Q: Who is your biggest role model, and why?

A: “My biggest role model would have to be my older sister Fiona; she also goes to ACHS, and she is a junior. We are only two years apart, but she is my best friend, and I look up to her for basically everything. We have grown up incredibly close, and I am so blessed to have a built-in best friend; I will never stop being grateful. Whether it is for advice, cheer or school, I can always count on her to help and keep me motivated. I know that she will always be there for me for whatever and whenever I need her. I am going to be so sad when she leaves for college because that will be the first time we will basically be separated. All in all, she is my best friend, my biggest inspiration and my role model.”

Q: What is your dream college?

A: “Maybe Marquette. I am not sure where I want to go, but I don’t want to go far from home. Although, I do know I have always wanted to study law. A close cousin of mine who recently just graduated from law school always has interesting stories to tell me from her experience.”

Q: What is your favorite food?

A: “My favorite food is pasta; it has always been one of my favorites growing up.”

Q: What is your favorite holiday?

A: “My favorite holiday is Christmas. I love spending time with my family, and everyone is always home together on Christmas.”

Q: What is one piece of advice you would give to your 10-year-old self?

A: “Some advice for my 10-year-old self would be to make time for things that are important to me and focus on the things that matter. I think that sometimes I get ahead of myself and focus on the future a lot more than I should, not really spending time on things that always make me feel good or happy. As we age into young adults, I think that this motto and advice is pretty generic but gets really deep with oneself, and that is something I want to always remind myself: to keep doing what I love and not pay attention to what others say.”

Q: What is your favorite TV show or movie? 

A: “My favorite movie would have to be any of the Harry Potter movies from the series. I love Harry Potter a lot, and my love for it came from my best friend, Elle; we have been friends since we were younger. Recently, during the pandemic, she introduced the series to me. I never really had an interest until, one day, I found myself binge-watching the whole series with her and loving it. Reading is also one of my favorite hobbies, and the books J.K. Rowling writes are very creative. Soon after we binge-watched them for the first time, we then rewatched them, and I honestly don’t think I could ever get sick of them; they will always be my favorites, including the memories behind watching them.” 

Q: What is one piece of advice that you would give to an eighth-grader coming into freshman year?

A: “Just stay on top of all your work and always ask for help when you need it, no matter what it is.”
