My name is Haley Ballance and I am nineteen years old. I live in Hyde County in the small town of Fairfield. My parents are Gwen and Mitchell Balance. My mother is a teacher and my father is a farmer. I have been attending Mattamuskeet Early College High School for five years. I will be graduating with a high school diploma and an associate’s degree from Beaufort County Community College. I have been involved in BETA, HOSA, Duke TIP, and the math club. I participated in HOSA Bowl at the HOSA Regional competition and received third place. In my spare time I like to read, play with my cats, and spend time with my family. In the fall, I will be attending East Carolina University and majoring in biology. My career goal is to become a doctor. When I first entered high school, I was not sure what accomplishments and tribulations would arise. It was a lot of hard work but it all paid off in the end. I would like to thank my family, friends, and teachers who believed in me and pushed me to do my very best. I walk away with a lot of memories that will stay with me forever. Congratulations to the Class of 2013!
