Meet Guerin Catholic High School Senior Maggie!
How Maggie describes herself: “I play golf and run track and I’m a full IB student at GC. My favorite subject is chemistry. I want to go to college at Notre Dame. I love traveling and this summer I’m hoping to to to Brazil for a mission trip as well as work at Camp Tecumseh as a counselor. I love going to concerts and GCHS football/basketball games.”
Why she thinks she’s more than just a teenager: “I think I’m more than just a teenager because I don’t want one word to define me. Adults aren’t defined as “just adults.” So why should teenagers be defined as “just teenagers”? I don’t think it’s fair to group us all together because each teenager is an individual who may or may not fit the typical stereotype of a teenager. When going by the typical stereotype, I would say I’m much more than just that. I love to learn, I want to know more about the world and about so many things. I also want to love more and to learn how to be kinder everyday. I want to make an impact more than “just a teenager.”
Leave Maggie some love to help her raise money for Project Discovery, which is the name of the mission trip she went on to Brazil.

My dad makes SUPER good grilled chicken that’s amazing and my mom makes awesome butternut squash soup twice a year that is so good.
When you were little, what did you dream of being when you grew up?
I wanted to be a dentist but I’m really not sure why.
Who are your role models and why?
My biggest role models are my parents. I look up to them for raising me the way that they did and for being all around amazing parents and people.

I hope to go to college, get married and have a good job and be a mom!

I want them to remember me as someone who didn’t waste senior year. I want to be known as someone who was kind to everyone and made new friends even though high school was almost over.
What kind of impact do you want to make on the world?
I want to make an impact as someone who helped others, but maybe not directly. I know that sounds weird but the job I’m interested in is similar to a CSI agent in that I want to improve people’s lives by busting bad guys and keeping people safe.
