Meet Guerin Catholic 2015 Senior Megan!

Here’s how Megan describes herself: “I am very artistically talented and I am currently studying IB Art. I am a varsity cheerleader for the school’s football team. I enjoy hanging out with my friends and going to concerts. I love to read books and watch movies. I currently have a job at a preschool and I nanny.”

And why Megan thinks she’s more than just a teenager: “I guess I would have to say that I am “more than just a teenager” because I have the ability to inspire others and make a difference in someone else’s life just as much as any other person or adult.”

Such Great Senior: Erin

Meet 2015 Model Erin again!

Here’s why Erin thinks she’s more than just a teenager: “I am intelligent and I think that most adults assume that every teenager only wants instant gratification, and I do not think that is the case for everyone. I’ve kept my long term future inside every decision I’ve made for the past 5 or 6 years now and I don’t think a lot of adults can say the same when they were my age. I also think that everyone possesses the power to change someone’s life; whether that be spiritually, physically, mentally or even just by the power of words through poetry music or books. I believe that I possess the power to do all of those things – even as a teenager.”

Leave Erin a comment to help her raise money for Nehemiah Vision Ministries.

What do you do on a typical night out with friends?

My best friends and I love to stay home and watch Law and Order, go out to restaurants, read poems to each other and share new music we’ve discovered on Spotify. Our newest discovery is Leonard Cohen.

Erin 2015 Senior Photo Shoot, Westfield, IN | Photographer : Such Great Heights Photography, Maya Laurent | Model: Erin | Westfield High School | 2015 | sghseniors.com

Who are your role models and why?

My Doctor, Kent Erb. He is a very patient and gracious man of God, and also he has my aspiring career. Also my old Chemistry teacher Mrs. McLean because she’s extremely tough and so nice.

Erin 2015 Senior Photo Shoot, Westfield, IN | Photographer : Such Great Heights Photography, Maya Laurent | Model: Erin | Westfield High School | 2015 | sghseniors.com

What kind of impact do you want to make on the world?

I want to change the people around me. Change their thought processes to think more like Jesus, be more accepting but also smart about what is going on in the world.

Such Great Senior: Meredith

2015 SGH Model Meredith is on the blog again with her senior session.

Here’s why Meredith thinks she’s more than just a teenager: “I am more than just a teenager because I am living my life for God’s purposes. My life isn’t just focused on fun or my own happiness. I am not flippant, apathetic, arrogant, dishonest, or selfish (primarily at least – I can’t say I never am). God is first, others are second, and I am third. We are all put here for a reason, and I hope to live up to that!”

Leave Meredith a comment to help her raise money for Missions Frontier in Chichicastenango, Guatemala.

Meredith 2015 Senior Photo Shoot, Westfield, IN | Photographer : Such Great Heights Photography, Maya Laurent | Model: Meredith | Westfield High School | 2015 | sghseniors.com

What are your favorite activities?

Outdoor adventure, tree climbing, bike riding, kayaking, roller blading, tennis, painting, reading, baking (more importantly eating), volunteering, Merge/small group, spending time with friends and family.

Meredith 2015 Senior Photo Shoot, Westfield, IN | Photographer : Such Great Heights Photography, Maya Laurent | Model: Meredith | Westfield High School | 2015 | sghseniors.com

Who are your role models and why?

My parents. We don’t always get along, but I think that’s inevitable. My dad is so wise and so gentle. I am baffled by his attitude in heated times. My mom and I are extremely different in personality; nevertheless, her passion and dedication to commitment is incredible. Both of my parents have showed me how to live faithfully and righteously. I am constantly inspired by my small group leaders. They are so loving and supportive. Their faith is awing and always evident in their behavior and perspective. I want to be able to love like they do.

Meredith 2015 Senior Photo Shoot, Westfield, IN | Photographer : Such Great Heights Photography, Maya Laurent | Model: Meredith | Westfield High School | 2015 | sghseniors.com

What do you want people to remember about you when they look back on your senior year?

I hope that people remember me as a faithful Christian, living and loving in a way that represents Christ’s love and sacrifice for us. I want people to remember fun times we’ve had together, the laughter, the crazy, and the passion for life!

Such Great Senior: Claire

Time to get to know 2015 SGH Model Claire better.

Here’s Claire’s thoughts on being more than just a teenager: “I think “I’m more than just a teenager” because teenagers go through battles that are just as hard, or harder, than adults. We have to experience who we are and who we will become. We have to experience finding love and then feeling heart break multiple times. We lose and gain friends on a constant cycle. School is a huge cause of stress on us and we have a huge work load that only we would understand. We have to learn to accept rejection and find acceptance in the toughest of times. The hardest battle of all is the battle in our minds of whether or not we want to change who we are to fit in or stick to our guts and possibly get judged by others.”

Leave her some love to help her raise money for The American Heart Association.

Claire 2015 Senior Photo Shoot, Westfield, IN | Photographer : Such Great Heights Photography, Maya Laurent | Model: Claire | Carmel High School | 2015 | sghseniors.com

Claire 2015 Senior Photo Shoot, Westfield, IN | Photographer : Such Great Heights Photography, Maya Laurent | Model: Claire | Carmel High School | 2015 | sghseniors.com

Who are your role models and why?

My mom because she is the true image of a strong woman who has stuck to her morals and made a fabulous life for herself. She and my dad love each other so much still and I hope to be that way when I get older with my future husband (whoever he is).

Claire 2015 Senior Photo Shoot, Westfield, IN | Photographer : Such Great Heights Photography, Maya Laurent | Model: Claire | Carmel High School | 2015 | sghseniors.com

What are your hopes/plans for the future?

I hope to graduate high school and college and get diplomas for both. I hope to achieve my job of being an elementary teacher (4th grade specifically). I also hope to meet my dream guy who will love me even though I can be stubborn sometimes! I hope to have kids and raise them as well as my mom raised me. Lastly, I would be so grateful to grow old with my husband and kids around me.

When you were little, what did you dream of being when you grew up?

Everything. It changed day by day. The longest phase was a marine biologist. I was obsessed with dolphins. I had a dolphin collection and I decorated my room like an ocean and had dolphins everywhere. It was crazy (and secretly still awesome).

Allie 2015 Senior Photo Shoot, Noblesville, IN | Photographer : Such Great Heights Photography, Maya Laurent | Model: Allie | North Central High School | 2015 | sghseniors.com

Who are your role models and why?

I actually have a long typed-out list of my most inspiring women. Some of them are Mother Theresa for her selflessness, Meryl Streep for her humbleness and versatility in her acting, Lupita Nyong’o for never stopping pursuing her dreams, and Patricia Wiehe for her passion for music, her family, and her students and for being THE most balanced person I have ever known.

What do you want people to remember about you when they look back on your senior year?

Hopefully, I would like people to remember that I was a nice person who anyone could go to if they needed anything. I love being around people and if/when they think of me, and think “Oh, she was a pretty cool gal,” then that’s cool with me.

Allie 2015 Senior Photo Shoot, Noblesville, IN | Photographer : Such Great Heights Photography, Maya Laurent | Model: Allie | North Central High School | 2015 | sghseniors.com

What kind of impact do you want to make on the world?

I always think that you don’t need to reach the world to change the world. If you can make an impact in one person’s life, then you’ve got it made. I just want to help people in any way I can, but always love to spread my passion for anything in the arts and want to inspire and empower people to reach their goals.

They have both taught me so much and couldn’t imagine being raised by anyone else!
