Meet 2016 Senior Katie!
Here’s how she describes herself: “I am a very unique person. I prefer books to movies. I am very involved in the Latin community. I enjoy planning events, volunteering and singing. I preform in my school’s choir. I enjoy rainy days and love it when it snows. I tend to be a romantic at heart. If I am not nose deep in a book, I enjoy spending time with my family.”
Why Katie thinks she’s more than just a teenager: “I am more than just a teenager because I’m me. I’m unique in my own way. I have my quarks that make people laugh at me and my sense of humor that is usually way off point. I don’t pretend to be someone else. That is way too hard an no fun at all. I do what I love and I am not afraid to go for it. By being me I become more than a teenager!”
Leave Katie a comment to help her raise money for Morning Dove Therapeutic Riding Center.
