Senior Spotlight: Meet Ana Ali

 Ana Ali


What do you like best about Ewing High School? I enjoy the spirited environment at Ewing High. Whether it is a football game, basketball game or pep rally, the students all come out to support and represent their class. Spirit Weeks are always so fun to participate in and it is awesome to see the whole school unified in blue and white.


Who is your favorite teacher(s) or coach and why? My favorite teachers are Mr. Ballek, Mr. Burley and Sra Kuentzel. I have learned so much in all of their classes and they have always made learning fun. They show so much support for their students and always make themselves available to them. They all are amazing people who have had a positive impact in my life and I hope to work hard to make them proud.


In which activities do you participate? I am a member of Key Club, Rotary Club, Student Council, National Honors Society and I play tennis. Through these activities, I am able to serve and participate in my community and school. Participating in these activities made my high school career one to remember and helped me to find myself.


What is your favorite memory of high school?
I have made many memories at Ewing High, but one of my favorites would be going on the Peer Leadership retreat. A special bond was created with all of the peer leaders by getting to know each other on a deeper level. I had so much fun during different group activities and creating new experiences with my peers. I will always remember the good times of that trip.


What do you do outside of school? Outside of school I like to spend my time with friends and family. I am also involved with my Mosque, Islamic Society of Central Jersey. We value the meaning of giving back, so we organize and participate in fundraisers where we donate to people in need locally and across the globe.


What are your plans after you graduate? After graduation, I plan to attend university. I am not committed to a school as of now, but I am sure I won’t be too far from home. I plan to major in Biology.


Where do you see yourself in five years? In five years I see myself graduated with my Bachelors and hoping to continue my studies in the field of medicine.
