James Kenan High School - Savannah Baker


SAVANNAH BAKER
BIOGRAPHY:
Hi, my name is Savannah Baker and I live in Kenansville North Carolina. I was born in Hartford, Connecticut and spent the majority of my life in Charlotte, NC. Kenansville is a small town about 50 miles outside of Wilmington and has been my home for the past 5 years. I live with my mom and she has greatly shaped me into the person that I am today. Family has been a huge part of my life and I spent the majority of my life living a large household full of love. Even if we did not always have the best situation she pushed me to be all that I can be and no matter the challenge she always taught me to push through it.

In school I am currently valedictorian, Student Body President, captain of my soccer team, I cheer, as well as run track. I am in am array of clubs that include Beta club where I am treasurer and the debate team. I am also a member of the National technical honor society. My dream is to attend UNC-Chapel Hill and major in Finance and then later go on to law school. I am hoping to attend either UNC or UVA and earn a dual degree where I would be able to get my MBA as well as my Law Degree. I would love to study and do something in employment law.

I spent this past summer at Governor's School east studying social science and that has greatly affected who I am as a person today. It helped me view the world in a new light and taught me to be even more accepting of others peoples Ideas. I am a self proclaimed feminist and I am now active in my local NAACP youth chapter where I am the educational chairman. Governor's schools taught me so much as a person and I am thankful for the experience.
