My interests include writing, reading, being outside, and making other people smile. Wherever my life may lead the only thing I want to find in a career is passion. My inspiration for everything I do is fueled by people not afraid to make mistakes whose adrenaline rushing through their veins is simply derived from their enthusiasm for the potential of life. My all time favorite quote is from Maya Angelou, “I’ve learned people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” Poem: Shelby’s Poem Elena W I am going into my senior year of high school. I’m a ballerina, a band geek, and I plan on studying marine biology or pre-med. Personal Narrative- Elena’s Digital Personal Narrative Collin R I am attending Spring Lake High School and will be a Senior in the fall and will graduate in 2014. I am looking at going to Michigan State University and studying some sort of physical sciences such as Chemistry or Physics or maybe even Astronomy. Essay: Collin’s Descriptive Essay Mirela K I am going to be a senior at Spring Lake. This year has been life changing for me. I have really stepped out of my comfort zone and done things I would have never done before. In the future, I would like to be a prosecuting attorney and I would also like to give the Air Force 6 to 8 years. After that, I would live to settle down in Ireland. I have big dreams but I am so excited for the future.
