    Growing up I have always wanted to make a difference in this world. I strive to bring joy in the lives of those around me each day. I have grown up very blessed, and I will never take that for granted. I have wonderful parents who love and support me, I have fun, younger brothers, sweet friends, and a good and gracious God. I have attended Camden Fairview School District for all thirteen years of school. I enjoy serving others; therefore, in my four years of high school I have been a member of Beta Club, Key Club, P.E.A.R.L.S, National Honor Society, Drive Smart, and Student Council. I have served as my class vice president through the student council for the past three years. I attend Believer's Church of Camden where I serve on the worship team, the nursery, and the children's church team weekly. I have been employed at Morrison’s Pharmacy of Camden as a clerk for the last two years. I am an AP as well as an Arkansas Scholar, an Arkansas Girls State alumni, and I have been on the All A's Honor Roll list all four years. I have also been a member of the Lady Cardinal Golf Team for the last four years where I ended my senior season receiving Academic All-Conference and qualifying for state as an individual. Ever since I was a little girl I have always tried to make big life goals. One of my first ones is to graduate high school with good grades and many joyful memories. Next, I plan to attend the University of Central Arkansas for four years to receive my Bachelors in Exercise Science. Then I will apply to their physical therapy school where I will hopefully be accepted to attend and receive my Doctorate in Physical Therapy. I have fallen in love with this occupation because of how rewarding it is. To be able to create relationships between patients and their families would be extremely special to me. I love being around young children and my favorite moments with them are when I am able to make them smile. It just warms my heart! This career is a very life-impacting job. To be able to help young children learn new ways to move or to even be able to help them walk for the first time would be a huge deal. I hope to be able to use this occupation to make a beautiful, positive impact on today's generation. I want to bring light to how important the virtues of kindness, patience, and gentleness are; as they play a key element in being a good physical therapist. Through becoming a Pediatric Physical Therapist, I hope to make an incredible impact in the lives of many sweet children and their families!

    Faith is one of those words that can mean a variety of different things. The majority of the time, people only put their faith in others or materialistic things when they want them to succeed. However, the word "faith" to me means my relationship with God the Father. All my life I have grown up in God's word and the church. I have been very blessed with parents who have implemented those virtues in my life. While I grew up in that type of lifestyle, it wasn't until I got older that I started choosing to live that type of life myself. However, I strongly believe I would not have wanted to continue living that kind of life if it wasn't for the wonderful influence my parents had on me; an influence I will forever be grateful for. It has been a long, difficult road living for God. While we want it to be easy, you will learn that doing the right thing is not always the simplest. It can be hard to choose to read your bible, pray, or worship when our flesh just wants to be a part of the rest of the world that we are now able to hold at our fingertips. I can testify that sometimes your flesh is going to get the best of you and you will just have to try to fight it harder the next time. I can promise you that when you start your day spending time with God and not scrolling through Instagram it will instantly make you feel better and more productive. In the end, we should want to choose to spend time with Him because of all that He has done for us. He has done more than I could have imagined for me. He has blessed me with a wonderful family, an amazing boyfriend, a fun group of friends, and a great home church. I could never deserve all of those wonderful things, but it is by His grace that we can live. If I could I would tell everyone in the world about Jesus because of all that He has done for me. Since I do not have that type of power, I have decided to live a life that exemplifies the goodness of God, so that those around me can see how great He is through my words and my actions. That includes not cussing, gossiping, or doing the wrong thing even when everyone else is. That way they may see how wonderful that type of life is and decide to give theirs to the Lord. In the end, it will all be to glorify Him.

    No human is perfect. Everyone was born evil; therefore, everyone is going to mess up at some point in their life. I don’t believe that the Millennial generation messed everything up. I believe that each generation has done and will do things that will hurt the future generations. I do not think it is fair for Gen Z to blame everything on the Millennials and not even let them help fix it. If we want things to be done the right way we will need all the help we can get. We should be able to work together on these things and not let our differences keep us from coming together. I will say there are a few things that differentiate us from each other; such as the way we do certain things or deal with trouble. However, we should be able to come in agreement on how to deal with things that make sense to all of us. If we keep letting our world go down the path it is headed for right now our future society will be destroyed. There will be no good life left. Therefore, we need to leave the drama and the tension behind and actually try working in unison on these issues.
