My name is Torisha D, and I’m going to tell you all about me! I’m a senior at East Carteret high school. For four years I’ve been in Speech and Debate in which I’m Vice President and I’m ranked the eighth top debater in North Carolina. Also, I’m President of Minority Traditions, and BETA club. I’m involved in my school’s musical productions, Mock Trial, Chorus, Drama Society, Glee, Interact Club, HUNS Environmental Club, and I’m scorekeeper for Varsity Basketball. Although I’m extremely involved in school related activities I find time to do volunteer work. I tutor elementary students, visit nursing homes and sing for the elderly, volunteer as a church orator, and raised over $4,500 to go towards local scholarships. Senior year has been one of the most stressful, yet rewarding years in my high school career. I’ve met numerous challenges along the way and I’ve learned to use my stumbling blocks as steeping stones while maintaining an optimistic attitude. I plan to attend UNC Chapel-Hill this fall and major in Pre-law. I would like to thank my parents and family, for being my biggest cheerleaders, my friends for their words of encouragement, and my teachers, especially Mrs. Julia Millush, for their continuous support and motivating me to strive to be the best. Last but not least, God for bestowing overflowing blessings in my life, and allowing me the chance to experience great opportunities. Congratulations to the class of 2012 and I’m sure that all of you will do well!
