Within school, I am president of Science Club, president of National Honor Society, Student Body President, Yearbook Editor-In-Chief, and a Link Crew leader. For the past two years, I have also been a cross country runner. I was also proud to hold the honor of Junior Chief Marshall.
My sophomore year in high school, I graduated from Pitt County’s Teen Leadership Institute, and the following summer served as a page for the NC Legislature House of Representatives for a week. When I was a junior I also had the joy of participating in Pitt County’s Junior Miss Scholarship Program, and I spent just last summer having the time of my life at NC Governor’s School West, studying social sciences.
In my free time, I am a passionate baton twirler at Stars Twirl Studio, proudly announcing that I will be a Wolfpack Majorette next year. In addition, I have volunteered tutoring for a few different organizations, participated in many charity walks, and am an active member at Red Oak Christian Church.
I could not be more excited for the endeavors which I will face in college, and without the strong support of my family behind me, I know that none of my accomplishments could be possible.
