1.Describe a person who has had a significant impact on you, and explain their influence.
The person that has had the biggest impact on my life would be my YoungLife leader, Tess Barnfield. From the very beginning, Tess has always been by my side. Whether it is YoungLife related or not, she has supported me and encouraged me to always do my best. I have learned a lot about life itself by just being around Tess. By watching her always see the good in situations and people, I have also learned to be a more positive person, which has made me happier in the long run.
2.What advice would you give to middle-school girls about achieving success in high school?
If I were to give advice to a middle-school girl I would tell her to not worry about fitting in. I have learned that you are always going to be happier if you just be yourself and don’t try to be someone you are not. I would also tell them to always do her best. The harder you work in middle and high school, the more successful you are going to be in getting into a college you like. Over my high school experience I have discovered that not only do I get better grades when I thoroughly do my school work, but I also feel better about myself.
1.Describe how you have demonstrated leadership ability both in and out of school.
When I was a sophomore I joined Family Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA). Ever since I joined I have been an active member and have recently become one of the activities coordinators. With that position, I help plan and organize different service projects and communicate with other members of our club. Out of school I have been involved with YoungLife and plan to volunteer working at a summer camp helping kids my age learn about Jesus. I will be gone for a month serving the campers three meals a day. I believe leadership is very important in life, so I always take as many leadership opportunities as I can.
2.Describe your most meaningful achievement and how it relates to your future goals.
I would have to say being accepted to Austin Peay State University is the achievement I am most proud of. I have dreamed of being a governor for quite a while now and I can finally make this dream come true. Being accepted to APSU has allowed me to continue to plan to pursue a career in nursing. Based on reviews of their nursing program, I believe I will be very successful in accomplishing my dreams. I am proud to say that I am going to be a governor at Austin Peay and it is an honor to say I have been accepted to my dream school.
