Such Great Senior: Abigail

Meet Abigail again! She’s one of the 2015 Such Great Heights Models and is back with her senior session.

Here’s Abigail thoughts on being more than just a teenager: “God loves me. I guess that’s really simple, and I’ve definitely been wrestling with it lately, because it feels sort of ridiculous, but I think without God we’re all just teenagers, just adults, just artists, just whatever. I think that’s what makes us.”

Such Great Senior: Riley

It’s time to get to know 2015 SGH Model Riley better!

Here’s Riley’s thoughts on why she’s more than just a teenager: “I think I am more than just a teenager because of what God has done in my life. Rather than crying about school stress or getting super excited about parties, I find myself upset about the poverty I saw in Haiti and too excited about water found in Kenya and a child soldier being returned home. My interests and passions all stem back to what I’ve learned on mission trips. I was the purest form of happy when I was out of the country. All I crave is to go back. I know fully well what God wants me to do with my life and I cannot wait to act upon it.”

And as far as role models I personally know mine is Maya Laurent. She also is an incredible woman of Christ. She disciples me and has really shown me that you can totally turn your life around if you need to.

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

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

I want people to remember that I was always laughing or smiling. I love my life and I love my friends and family and God, I hope that radiated out of me. I hope that my passions for missions and travel were also something that stuck out.

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

Such Great Senior: Halee

It’s SGH Model Halee’s turn on the blog with her seniors session!

Here’s why Halee thinks she is more than just a teenager: “I think that I’m more than just a teenager because I’m not like everyone else. Sure, I still get mad at my parents or brother, get lazy sometimes, but I am more than “just a teenager.” I am a strong, independent girl, who’s trying her best in everything she does. I don’t go to parties, don’t do drugs, don’t drink. I do my homework and try very hard in school. I don’t slack off like the stereotype says. I am more than “just a teenager” because I have hopes and dreams for the future. I am unique, unlike anyone else. I have my own style, my own preferences. I am worth so much more than “just a teenager,” and I am ready to find my place in this world.”

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

What are your favorite activities?

I love to run! I have been running since 4th grade. I also enjoy photography in my free time. Volunteering is also very important to me and I enjoy serving others.

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

Who are your role models and why?

My biggest role model would clearly be Jesus, because he was sent by God to Earth and lived a perfect life, and all Christians are called to live their life trying to follow in Jesus’s footsteps. Other than Jesus, my parents are role models of mine, they are always there for me and I’m so blessed to have them in my life. I also have several friends I look up to and admire their relationships and friendships with others, as well as their relationships with God.

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

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

I know that it doesn’t always feel like I can have an impact on the world as just one person, but I know that every action I take has a ripple effect, even if I never see the results, I know that what I do has an effect on the world. I hope to make a positive impact on the world, and to advance the mission of God, spreading his word to people and being Jesus to others.

Such Great Senior: Amanda

2015 SGH Model Amanda is here with her senior session!

Amanda’s thoughts on being more than just a teenager: “I think we are more than just a teenager because this is such an important time in our lives. This is when we make decisions that affect our future and eventually the lives of others. Teenagers are often underestimated and thought of as immature, but what we learn and do now is going to affect what the future is like. We are the next generation of leaders we will change the world.”

My role model is my mom. She always is so caring and helpful. She is so selfless and handles situations with a lot of grace. She works at an elementary school, and I love getting to hear her stories about her students there. Mother Teresa is also one of my role models because she gave everything for the service of others. Another is Malala Yousafzai because I love her ideas about nonviolence and education.

Such Great Senior: Taylor

Meet 2015 SGH Model Taylor again with her senior photos!

Here’s why Taylor thinks she is more than just a teenager: “I’m so much more than just a teenager. One label in no way could ever define me, or anyone for that matter. I’m a daughter, a sister, a student, a friend, and so much more. Even though I might fit into the label “teenager,” it doesn’t determine everything about me. I’ve only lived 16 years, but I still have had some pretty difficult times I’ve had to deal with. I’ve learned so much about who I am, and I’m still learning more. Yeah, I’m not always perfect. But no matter what happens, I keep picking myself and continuing on. Even though I’m a teenager, that’s most definitely not all that I am.”

What are your favorite activities?

I’m a really big book nerd. Seriously I could probably recommend about 10 books for any given person on the spot. I also adore crafting, especially making bows, painting canvases, and making friendship bracelets. Singing and acting has also been a passion of mine for a really long time. I have a lot of energy, so I love being active, whether that’s walking my dog, biking, hiking, or basically anything where I’m outside and moving around!

Who are your role models and why?

My parents are definitely some of my biggest role models. They’ve truly helped me stay strong through some of the toughest times in my life, and my gratitude for them is eternal. I can only hope that one day I’m as selfless and caring as they are, they seriously would do just about anything for me and I can’t describe how much I admire that!

Such Great Senior: Mari

You’ve met 2015 SGH Model Mari once before but now you get to know her better!

Here’s why Mari thinks she is more than just a teenager: “Teenagers are underestimated and under appreciated just because of a common stereotype. I am more that just the stereotype, and I feel like coming here for school has made me a lot more mature and independent than most teenagers. I’m unlike the common teenager stereotype, because I know when to be mature and when it’s appropriate to be quirky and mess around. I think the balance between the two is needed to become a mature young adult.”

Leave Mari some love to help her raise money for The Julian Center.

I’m very passionate about theatre and would like to study it in college. I enjoy being in plays at Carmel High School and meeting new people through them. I also love hanging out with my friends and family as well as reading books and watching movies.

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

Who are your role models and why?

My mom is my role model because she has shown me that I can’t give up and have to fight for my dreams. She has always taught me to believe in myself. Jessica Chastain is also my favorite actress and she has accomplished everything that I want to do in my future and she’s a wonderful person to look up to.

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

I want to be a role model for people in Colombia to show them that if you fight hard enough and don’t give up, then you can accomplish anything that you set your mind to.
