I do have a pretty goofy side. I enjoy horseback riding with my grandpa, and nothing beats a morning on the swing listening to the birds chirp.
I am planning to attend Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University to major in Interior Design. It is not easy to pick a career out of a big selection; however, my career choice was inspired by a masterpiece I made at eight years of age. It was a little white house made of copy paper and desk tape. The best part was the workable john lid. Remember, I was only eight.
I am also a huge pet lover, and I do not think I would have made it this far without my cat, Stripes. He has been there for me through thick and thin.
I would like to thank my grandmother and grandfather for always believing in me.
I attend Ariton High School, the Home of the Purple Cats. I enjoy sports, musical theater, community service opportunities, and spending time with family and friends. A fun fact about me is that I jumped out of the first airplane I rode in and experienced the thrill of skydiving.
I will be attending the University of Alabama. I will be studying Biology and will be on the Pre-Med track. I have always dreamed of being in the medical field, but I have specifically chosen to become a Cardiothoracic Surgeon because of my family's history of heart disease. I want to help others who have faced the same conditions as those dear to me. I would like to thank my parents for always supporting me in everything I do.
My favorite activities are hiking and traveling. My fun fact is that I am currently training to hike the entirety of the Appalachian Trail.
I will be studying at Troy University in the fall with a major in Biology. I chose my major because I have always had a vast interest in STEM, especially the biology and anatomy of plants and animals. My major will not only allow me further my education in the subject but will also open the opportunity for me to attend medical school. (I plan to become a forensic pathologist).
I would like to sincerely thank my mother for continuously pushing me toward success.
