Life is a journey. I am Hannah Arvilla Moran. I am the first born child in my family of seven therefore I will be the first to graduate. I have three younger brothers, Noah, Adin, Luke and one sister named Libby. Luke and Libby are twins and are the youngest of my four siblings. I love photography, art, music and baking. I also enjoy singing for church and for school. I love my family and I love spending time with them. We are all very close to one another which will make my goodbye for college a challenge. I was born in Stockton, California and have lived in a total of five different states. I spent half of my life in Denver Colorado. I started kindergarten in Colorado and finished out my last few months of fifth grade in Wilson, North Carolina. I started school at Community Christian School my sixth grade year and I am very proud to say that I will be graduating from CCS here in a few short months. I have always loved school and learning. I will hopefully be graduating as Valedictorian of the Community Christian School class of 2017. As I continue my educational career I hope to attend UNC Charlotte, UNC Chapel Hill, or Meredith College. I want to pursue a career in medicine. It is my goal to become a nurse practioner after high school and specialize in pediatrics or neonatal care. I would also love to do medical missions and make a difference in the world. As I continue my life journey after high school, I hope to continue to stay true to myself and embark on the adventure that awaits me.
