Describe your senior year in three words. 
Unforgettable; Life-changing; Convivial

“I will always remember…” 
I will always remember how fast my senior year brought me into adult reality. Being in 12th grade showed me how to transform into a young-adult in a matter of moments. With given an opportunity to work and enroll in early college, the insight was a reward that allowed me to prepare for the real world.

What are your plans after graduation? 
After graduation, I will enroll in Georgia College & State University in August of 2019. Georgia College & State University will be the institution where I major in Nursing and receive my BSN Degree.

Where do you see yourself in five or ten years? What are your goals? 
In five years, I hope to be working at a local medical clinic in Warner Robins, Georgia. Over the next ten years, I plan to have completed a graduate program where I can receive my Nurse Practitioner License in Gerontology.

Our school theme this year is "Anchored In Excellence", tell us what motivates you to put forth your greatest efforts?
My family and I is what motivates me to put forth my greatest efforts. My own potential has motivated me to strive for anything. I have witnessed myself accomplish many goals, which serves as a motivation for me to strive towards anything in life.

Who or what was most helpful or influential to you in your high school career, both in school and outside of school?
My parents have been the most influential to me in my high school career. Without their support, it would have been impossible to be this successful as I am today. Their hard work and determination has been just as equal as mine and that has paved the way to my success for years.
