My faith inspires me to continually look for ways to serve others. As a member of the Coastal Carolina Youth Council, I am able to impact the lives of the youth in my presbytery. I have also served as a Youth Enabler at Massanetta Springs Middle School Conferences, which strengthened my leadership abilities and allowed me to share my faith with youth from across the nation. I also volunteer at North Duplin Elementary School.
Always looking for opportunities to grow and learn, I attended Governor’s School West last summer, which was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. As I continue my educational journey, I will be attending East Carolina University in the fall as an EC Scholar. I hope to obtain an undergraduate degree in Biology, as well as a Master’s Degree in Occupational Therapy. I am thankful for the many opportunities I have been given, and cannot wait to start a new chapter in my life. Congratulations Class of 2012!
