Meet 2015 Carmel High School Senior Megan!
How Megan describes herself: “I was born in California and moved to Indiana when I was only a year old. I attended St. Maria Goretti Catholic school from kindergarten to eighth grade, and that is where I met my best friend of 12 years, Amelia My graduating class at SMG was 39 students, and now my graduating class at Carmel will be 1198 students. The transition from a small, Catholic school to a huge, public school was actually very easy for me, and I have made amazing friends at Carmel. I have been taking dance classes since I was three years old, piano lessons for seven years, and I have been in choir since 7th grade. You could say I LOVE music. I am a very hard working, religious, passionate, and caring person, and I love to make people happy.”
Megan’s thoughts on being more than just a teenager: “I think I am “more than just a teenager” because of my goals for the future. I no longer just think of myself and what to wear tomorrow and how to impress a crush. I now think of how to help others, how to get good grades to get into college, and how to not be bothered by what others think of me. I have become much more independent and I am excited for my future. The word “teenager” often comes after the words “hormonal,” “lazy,” or “immature,” but I hope that I prove those adjectives wrong and be the best me I can possibly be.”
Leave Megan a comment to help her raise money for Riley Children’s Hospital.
What are your favorite activities?
I love to dance, sing, make videos, take pictures, read, and hang out with my friends.
Who are your role models and why?
My role models are my parents because they have lived a very happy and successful life. I hope to graduate from Purdue just like them and eventually start a family that I care about more than myself. They have such great personalities and are an amazing support system in my life.
What are your hopes/plans for the future?
I hope to attend Purdue University and major in Speech/Language Pathology so I can eventually become a Speech Therapist for children.
