WITN - Class of 2013 - Headlines

Kimberly Fernandez


BIOGRAPHY:
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” Duplin Early College High School has been the place that has encouraged and allowed me to explore, dream, and discover. Whether I was making videos explaining the movement of plate tectonics or discovering a way to give back to the environment, I found my teachers were always striving to challenge me. With the help of family and teachers, I feel that my high school experience has been a time for me to grow socially and academically.

The early college has given me the opportunity to participate in various extracurricular activities. I have been president of the SGA, senator of the SGA, vice president of the BETA club, and the founder for both the intramural soccer team and the recycling committee. Despite the many clubs I have been a part of, the most influential experience I’ve had was attending the North Carolina Governor’s School for mathematics. This opportunity taught me to step out of my comfort zone and to tackle the hardest problems (academically and personally) with confidence.

The last four years of my life have been an amazing time for me and now I am extremely excited to begin my journey at the University of North Carolina at Chapel-Hill in the fall.
