Teyha Amundson, a senior at Salem Hills High School is often described as funny by her friends, witty by her mother, goofy by her brother and an awesome student by her teachers.  She nailed it! She said she thought it would depends on who she is with what they would say and she was right.  We are going to have to add the word, insightful to the list. Teyha is a homebody but she does like to hang out with friends.  They like to watch movies. Some of her favorites are Sixteen Candles and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. What do you want to bet she know most of the lines? She likes funny movies and those two are definitely hilarious.

When asked what her favorite foods are, Teyha immediately said curry - Indian Food.  She likes Bombay House in Provo but also likes to go to a restaurant in Payson. Crazy, it used to be a pet shop then three or four other restaurants before it sold Indian Food. Tehya’s color of choice is grey. Her favorite classes in high school were all the art classes. She took every art class offered. A memorable experience was when she ended up on the golf team.  They thought she was a natural when she tried out and ended up on Varsity, then they realized it had been her lucky day, a fluke. She went to every practice but never played. It will look good on scholarship applications - "Member of the Varsity Golf Team." 

After graduation, Tehya is planning on going to Snow College.  She is working hard to save her money in order to go. She received the Title VI Parent Committee scholarship.  That should help some, but she knows that she has a summer full of work, work, work. One thing on her bucket list is to one day go to Australia. When things get tough, she finds herself saying to herself, “You got this.” And she finds that when friends are having difficulties, she finds herself saying to them, “I got you.” What a wonderful friend. Teyha, we have no doubt you’ve got it!  We end with this for you:

Sloane: What are we going to do?

Ferris: The question isn't "what are we going to do," the question is "what aren't we going to do?"
