Eva Fredrick is the youngest member of the senior class of 2013 at Dublin High School and moved to Texas from England a few years ago. Despite being the "baby of my class," she's already looking forward to her future. Fredrick said she is applying to Stanford and the University of Texas Austin and will graduate in the top eight percent of her class. She is the daughter of Charles Fredrick and Suzann Thompson of Dublin.

1- What's your favorite class and why?

I love band because I love music. I'm good at it and I feel like I can express myself through my music.

2- Who is your biggest inspiration?

Definitely my mom. She's so independent and I love that about her. She went to college, got a degree and then a job but it wasn't where her heart was so she quit. Now she's published three books and I thinks that's so cool. I honestly hope that I can be as brave, strong and independent as she is when I'm grown.

3- What are your plans for the future?

I'm still applying to schools, but my first choice would be Stanford. But if not, I'm for sure going to UT in Austin. I'm not real sure what I want to major in yet, but I'm going to college next year and will figure it out from there.
