School: Batesburg-Leesville High
My parents like to tell their friends that they are proud of everything that I have overcome to get to where I am today. As a young child, my medical issues led to fears that eventually became a fear of standardized tests. Over time, I learned to get past this fear. According to my parents, they are most proud that I have a kind heart and that I care about others.
I would be hard-pressed to choose just one object. I would be torn between a petri dish that symbolized my science fair accomplishments and a piece of music that I have performed in a chorus concert. Both are passions of mine. If I had to choose just one, I’d have to choose the music because I plan to spend the rest of my life in a science field.
