This past winter, I helped coach Upward Cheerleading at my church and it was one of the best and most memorable experiences of my life. I never knew how much impact I could have on someone until I met those girls. I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to provide them with a positive influence, while teaching them the basics of cheerleading.
Although I am sad to leave my friends and high school behind, it excites me to say that the Honors College at East Carolina University will be my home for the next four years! I will be majoring in Exercise Physiology, with hopes to pursue a career as an Orthopedic Surgeon one day.
I must say that I would not be the person that I am today without the constant love and support of God and my amazing family and friends.
