Such Great Senior: Naomi

Meet 2015 Carmel High School Senior Naomi!!!

Here’s what she has to say about herself: “Well first and foremost, I’m a child of God. That’s the most important thing to me. Other than that, I love all things nature. My favorite thing in the whole world is the way the sun shines through the trees in the woods and makes little patches of light in the darkness. It’s the most beautiful thing. I also really love to write. Not necessarily about myself or nonfiction, but rather about other people. I love sharing other people’s stories, that’s why I want to be a journalist when I get older. I love dogs and moose and elephants and otters and frogs and turtles and basically I’m just a shy, kind of awkward girl.”

Naomi’s thoughts on being more than just a teenager: “I don’t really think I’m more than just a teenager. I love sleepovers, running around doing careless things and talking about boys just as much as the next teenage girl, but I think that’s the point. People expect teenagers to act a certain way or do certain things – good and bad. And while I live up to some of those expectations, I try not to live up to others. That part of me that tries not to live that way is the Holy Spirit inside of me. So I am just a teenager, but I also got the same one who raised Jesus from the grave living inside of me, and that’s pretty cool.”

Such Great Senior: Sarah

Meet 2015 Guerin High School Senior Sarah!

Here’s how Sarah describes herself: “I’m a senior at GCHS and I’ve been playing on the volleyball team since my freshman year at Guerin. I also started to run track last year after I quit travel volleyball. I’m really involved with my Parish Youth group at St. Maria Goretti. I help lead the middle school youth group as well and love leading and helping with retreats both through school and church. I love to help other people and I LOVE kids. I’m hoping to study nursing, neo-natal nurse, in college or do something related to children. I’m going to do an internship at a hospital my senior year to see if I would enjoy that job. At school my favorite subject is English and Math. I love hanging out with my friends and family!”

How Sarah sees herself as more than just a teenager: “I think I’m more than just a teenager because I don’t really participate with the “in” crowd. Like most high schools, there’s a lot of drinking, smoking, etc. going on with kids at my school. It’s not always easy to stay away from all this but I have really found my good group of friends and we’ve chosen not to participate in that kind of stuff. I love it because we have so much fun together, but at the same time we are staying out of trouble! This isn’t always easy to do so I feel good that I am able to find those types of people and stay away from trouble. I also feel like I’m more than just a teenager because I have 3 little siblings. Being the oldest of 4 has really taught me a lot of responsibility and helped me learn how to take care of kids and be patient.”

My mom is my biggest role model. She is always there for me and she has taught me basically everything that I know. She has helped me to grow in my faith and helped me make sure that I’m always on the right track and staying out of trouble! I’m also really close with my dad and I would consider him another one of my big role models because we are so much alike and he has helped me so much with volleyball and school. He is always at every single of one my games supporting me along with the rest of my family!

I love spending time with my family and friends.”

I am more than just a teenager because I have the confidence in myself to change the world just as any other person on this earth can. No one should be defined by their age because we are all different people with all different hearts.”

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

Who are your role models and why?

For starters, my momma. She has been through so much the past few years and never fails to show her family anything but love and kindness. She is super woman without the cape. She loves me unconditionally and always makes sure I know that I am a beautiful creation of God Himself. Everyone says I’ll look/be just like her when I’m older, and I have no problem with that. Ellen Degeneres is another one of my role models. Her motto is to “be kind to one another” and she spreads nothing but love throughout the world. She definitely has a lasting legacy upon so many people, and who wouldn’t want to be known for that?

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

What are your hopes/plans for the future?

I would like to attend Anderson University to major in social work and psychology and minor in family sciences. I have always wanted to work with kids. To change lives of so many people for the better has always been something I feel I am called to do, and I believe this is a perfect fit for me.

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

I want them to remember how I was positively involved with the school. I don’t want to be known as the “mean girl” or the girl who invested herself too much into her boyfriend and lost all of her friends. I want people to look back and say that I was a girl who showed love to everyone, no matter who you are or what your interests are.

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

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

I want to be a servant of God to my full ability. I want to show love to others and impact their lives for the better. To show God’s light to others could change everything about them, their path of life, and their thought process/decision making.

Such Great Senior: Kristin

Kristin is on the blog again with her senior session!

Kristin’s thoughts on being more than just a teenager: “I don’t think there is any such thing as “just a teenager.” Every person is unfathomably complex in their thoughts, aspirations, fears, and personality. The depths to which humanity’s diversity stretches never ceases to amaze me. I am perfectly distinct from every other person in the world, and that makes me more than “just” anything. I don’t only worry about passing trends, my thoughts go deeper than the latest rumor going around the school. I think about the nature of life, and I worry about where mine is headed. There’s more to me than just my age.”

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

I love cooking with my friends or just driving around. Going to get food, sitting around and playing games in someone’s basement. Most of my group prefers to just sit around in a circle and joke around, we aren’t big partiers.

What type of music makes you get up and dance?

I love something sort of folksy with a really good drum beat. Mumford and Sons, some City and Colour. Also, I never listen to the radio, so I’m not well versed on popular music, but when I’m at a party or a dance or something, I LOVE dancing to that.

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

I don’t see myself becoming some sort of large public or international figure, but I want to make a huge difference in some small area, like the town I choose to live in when I grow up. If I change a single life for the better, I’ll have succeeded.

Such Great Senior: Davis

Meet Davis, a Westfield High School Senior!

How he describes himself: “I’m a 17 year old guy who wants nothing more than to show God to others through my character. If nothing else, I have an admirable faith. But along with that, I swim, play soccer, read often, write a lot, and play the guitar. I aspire to be a journalist who travels the world writing on politics/religious cultures. This stems from the fact that I love writing, God, and exploring the world! The most exciting thing for me is finding a new spot in God’s kingdom and running, climbing and praying through it thoroughly.”

Why Davis feels he’s more than just a teenager: “I feel I have a lot of wisdom for my age. I’m able to keep a thousand balls in the air at once, and I’m very down to earth. I have a strong faith and know my self very well. I also try to avoid pride in many ways, and don’t use social media often because it fosters vanity.”

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

Nothing is ever done twice! We always do something new, whether it’s rock climbing, pool parties, trying new restaurants, or anything else! I guess the answer would be explore and adventure.

Such Great Senior: Caroline

2015 Guerin Catholic SGH Model Caroline is on the blog again!

Caroline’s thoughts on being more than just a teenager: “I think I am more than just a teenager because I really am not into what the typical things that people expect to do as a teenager. I really don’t try to follow what everyone else is doing because I have gotten very into following what I believe in. I really have gotten sick of all of the bad messages that music and TV shows have tried talking teenagers into following these standards. I also don’t like how society has tried to make women dress very provocatively over time and really ruining women’s dignity. I am apart of an all girls group at my church where we talk about girl stuff in our everyday lives and faith life and we have talked a lot about modesty there as well. That really has inspired me to get into modesty and so I started a blog talking about modesty and giving advice about it.”

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

When I was little what I wanted to be when I grew up changed quite a bit. I wanted to either be a vet, a teacher, and at one point I wanted to be a model for some weird reason.

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

Who are your role models and why?

Well my parents would obviously be because they are just such hard workers through all aspects of life and they always put others before themselves. My sister would be another role model because I have always wanted to be like her when I was little because she has helped me through a lot of things in my life and has told me to never give up. Another one of my role models is Mother Teresa because she is such a beautiful Saint and the way she lived her life so simple for the love of God has really inspired me to want to do mission work when I’m older.

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

I really want people to remember me as a very positive person that is spreading the word of God. I just really hope I inspire other people to grow stronger in their faith and also know that they are loved no matter what.

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

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

I really have gotten stronger within my faith so I hope I can spread the word of God to others and inspire them to grow closer in their faith.

Here’s how Leah describes herself: “I’m heavily involved in extracurriculars. I’m an editor for my school’s yearbook, Pinnacle, and I’m also Vice President of Carmel Mayor’s Youth Council. I consider myself to be pretty creative and I love designing. I spend a lot of my time running events and volunteering, which are both huge passions of mine. I’m really into fashion, but I think it’s more fun a lot of the time to get thrift stuff and try to make it work. I wear more jewelry than anyone I know. My favorite season is fall because it’s not too hot or cold, and there are no bugs! I love being in a big city and Chicago and NYC are my favorites. In NYC, I’ve learned that quirky, artsy places like SoHo are my favorites, rather than the Upper West side.”

And why she thinks she’s more than just a teenager: ” ‘Normal teenagers’ aren’t in all advanced classes, topped with top positions in two full-time commitment extracurriculars. I volunteer at least several hours every week and created 20% of my yearbook without any help from anyone. I’m currently helping run over 14 different events and projects with $1,000+ budgets for the Carmel Mayor’s Youth Council. I help my family by taking care of my grandmother and babysitting my two-year-old niece, and I maintain my high grades. I’m essentially balancing four full-time jobs and helping my family, while not getting paid for any of it. Teenagers can do all kinds of incredible things.”

Leave Leah some love to help her raise money for the Jewish Federation of Greater Indianapolis.

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

I love to go shopping in thrift store places and try on lots of clothes. We also all love to just hang out at Starbucks and talk.

Who are your role models and why?

One of my role models for sure is my mom. She works incredibly hard all the time, so much so that I never get to see her. But she’s sacrificing everything for me and our family, and I admire her for it. I also admire my grandmother because she’s strong and sassy, and persevered even when there was everything standing in her way.

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

The girl who worked hard to achieve her dreams. I have high aspirations and I don’t quit, but I also try to be kind and caring, and I want people to remember me as the girl who was there for them.

Such Great Senior: Allie

2015 Such Great Heights Model Allie is back on the blog today with her senior session!

Here’s Allie’s thoughts on being more than just a teenager: “I feel like teenagers are typically stereotyped. Adults always look down upon teenagers. What they don’t realize is that there is so much more to teens than they think. The phrase “oh it’s just another teen” is so frequently used. Teens have this representation of being selfish, non-caring children who don’t have a sense of reality. But teens aren’t that at all. Teens are dreamers, goal makers, intelligent, caring, and can feel so deeply. Deeper than adults. There is so much more to teenagers than what they are made out to be.”

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

Well, first we would go to one of our houses and put on makeup, etc. getting ready. Then go for a quick bite at a fast good restaurant before we hangout with people. Then end up going to someone’s house for the rest of the night hanging out with a big group of people.

What type of music makes you get up and dance?

I would have to say dubstep music really gets me up and dancing. It’s really a requirement, when the beat drops, you have to dance.
