Hi, I’m Will Bazemore. I live in the small town of Askewville with my three sisters and my parents, Doug and Julie. I’ve been raised with Christian morals and ethics at my church, Askewville Assembly of God where I work in the children’s ministry. I have attended school at Bethel Assembly Christian Academy ever since Pre-K and now am currently a senior with only three other classmates. My hobbies include drawing, playing video games, and watching great movies and TV shows. I am planning to attend Full Sail University to achieve a Bachelor’s in Film Science degree; from then, I plan to pursue making my own movies in Hollywood. My thoughts for my stories were to not strictly make Christian films but to provide just enough strong undertones that make others curious about God and His Word.
I have learned more than one lesson in my time in life, and one of them is learning to keep my mouth closed when I’m supposed to. Everyone around you is always watching and always listening to everything you do. Life has taught me more than once that saying the wrong thing - even a slight mumble - can very much affect your reputation. But life has also taught me that there is also a time to speak up and let your voice be heard. This is now what I’m trying to do with my aspiration to make films; I’m trying to allow my stories to be told to others, so that hopefully I can say that I have made an impact on their life.
SCHOOL: Bethel Assembly Christian Academy
NAME: Will Bazemore
PLANS FOR NEXT YEAR: I currently plan to attend Full Sail University to receive my Bachelor’s in Film Studies.
WHAT IS THE MOST CHALLENGING TASK AS A SENIOR: The most challenging task is definitely preparing for what happens after senior year: finding a job, assessing careers, preparing for college, etc.
WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR UNDERCLASSMEN: Stay true to others and most importantly yourself and don’t let anything hold you back from accomplishing your goals in life.
WHAT HAS BEEN THE HIGHLIGHT OF YOUR SENIOR YEAR: My highlight was definitely Senior Night. I’ve never felt so emotional about school in my entire life. It was then that I realized that my friends and I were soon going to depart, but I also saw that life for us was just beginning.
WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF IN 10 YEARS: If God allows, I plan to be directing my own Hollywood movies.
WHO IS THE MOST INFLUENTIAL PERSON IN YOUR LIFE AND WHY: It would definitely be my father. He has influenced me to be the Christian I am today and to not pursue my own plans, but to let God take over.
I AM MOST UNIQUE BECAUSE: I’ve been told that I have the gift of drawing. I can be really fun and energetic at times, yet I’m also really laid-back and will speak my mind when necessary.
WHAT IS THE ONE QUOTE YOU LIVE BY: “Give a man a mask, and he will become his true self.” I love the quote because it encourages me to live in the right ways no matter who is watching me. Plus, it comes from one of my favorite movies.
WHAT ARE 5 THINGS YOU VALUE MOST IMPORTANT AT THIS POINT IN YOUR LIFE: Family, friends, education, my upbringing, and my Christian heritage.
IF YOU COULD MOVE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, WHERE WOULD IT BE AND WHY: I like the thought of moving to somewhere like France or Italy. I’d most enjoy the artistic history, culture, and definitely the food!
WHAT IS THE ONE THING YOUR CLASSMATES STILL DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU AFTER ALL THIS TIME: think my classmates still don’t know that the only reason I could solve a Rubik’s Cube is because I cheated off of YouTube.
WHICH YEAR OF HIGH SCHOOL WAS YOUR FAVORITE: 10th Grade by far.
IF YOU WERE STRANDED ON A DESERTED ISLAND AND COULD ONLY TAKE ONE ITEM WITH YOU, WHAT WOULD IT BE?: I’d probably bring a robot that could serve a never-ending amount of ice cold Pepsi!
