Michael Lai – Class of 2018

What is your favorite academic subject/class?


What are some things you enjoy doing outside of the classroom?

I love playing tennis.  In my free time, I practice and play with some of my friends. I also love to cook!  My family owns MJ’s Restaurant, and I work there almost every day.

What do you love most about being an Assumption student?

I love that it’s a small school and you get to know everybody. The faculty are very friendly and care a lot about the students and their education. Everyone works hard to make Assumption students become successful academically, spiritually, and morally.

What advice or encouragement do you have to share with younger students?

Never be afraid to ask for help from a student or a teacher. You are not alone no matter what the situation is. Always do your best to stay on top of your homework, classes, and tests.

What are some of your future plans, hopes, and dreams?

My future plan is to go to Saint Ambrose and study Pre-optometry and Business. My hope is to also play tennis there.

What is your favorite Bible verse?

Philippians 4:13 – “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.”
