Who are your role models and why?

 

1. Kaylin Lapel – I cheered with her my freshmen and sophomore year and then she graduated but I learned so much from her. She constantly helped me get better and treated me as an equal even though I was 2 grades below her. She taught patience and leadership and just pushed me far beyond what I thought my limits were and I am forever grateful for her.

2. My brother, Conner – he pushes himself every day to be better than he was the day before. He struggled a lot with high school when he first started out and he never gave up no matter how bad it was getting. He found himself tutoring, did extra work to understand materials more, etc. He was also very shy and the transformation that happened was amazing. Now in his second year at IU, he is already the President of his fraternity and has so many great friends now.

Why do you think you are more than just a teenager?

I think that I am more than just a teenager because no matter how young or old you are, your ideas can be just as developed or mature as anyone else’s. There are some kids who have amazing ideas that some adults would never think of. We are the future of our country so people need to give kids more credit for our creativity.

Such Great Senior: Kristianna

Time to get to know 2016 SGH Model Kristianna better!

Why she thinks she is more than just a teenager: “I think everyone is unique and beautiful in their own way. No one should have to fit into a concrete model of what a teenager should be. We have the opportunity to make something important of our lives and we all need to take that chance and do something amazing with it. In this world of technology and photoshop, teenagers have an impossible standard to meet when it comes to appearance. We don’t need to try to make ourselves look like what society thinks is “perfect,” because we are all beautiful and perfect in the eyes of the Lord.”

A typical night with friends would be spent at ballet class! But sometimes on Friday nights if there is a football game or a show at Carmel, we go to those after class. And some Saturday nights I either go to a friend’s house and hang out or I invite someone over to my house.

Who are your role models and why?

Definitely my mom. She has gone through so much and she still is so strong. When she was in her twenties, her mom died, and my dad passed away from cancer in 2009. Then both her stepmother and father died within a year and a half of each other. So much has happened to her and she still pushes on and encourages me to be the best I can be. Another role model would be my dance teacher, Suzann Delay. She’s taught me since I was about 8 years old, and helped me to become the dancer and person I am today.

Such Great Senior: Reilly

Time to get to know 2016 SGH Model Reilly better!

Why Reilly thinks she’s more than just a teenager: “I think the word “teenager” has the negative connotation of being selfish, immature, irresponsible, etc. But that’s not who I am at all. I think I’m more than just a teenager because I seek to be a light in others lives and I know when you put others before yourself, that’s where you find true happiness. At this age, people are often primarily concerned with how cool they look, but that’s not what’s important to me. All anyone wants in this life is complete fulfillment, and I have learned that the easiest way to do that is accepting all that God has for your life. I’m more than just a teenager because I think this world is a better place when people find the things that make them happy, and pursue them. The happiness people get from doing that will carry over into everything they do. It will be contagious to others and nothing is more beautiful than that. I think it’s important to believe in who you are and believe in your dreams, because other people will too. We are all more than just teenagers because we are the future of this world.”

Leave Reilly some love to help her raise money for her mission trip to Haiti.

Reilly 2016 Senior Session, Carmel, IN | Photographer : Such Great Heights Photography, Maya Laurent | Model: Reilly | Carmel High School | 2015 | sghseniors.com | senior photography | senior photographer

Who are your role models and why?

My biggest role model is my dad. Everything he has is a result of his hard work. He loves everyone so well and that’s something I really look up to. He’s very intelligent and has a good outlook on everything. He puts his family first and is a perfect example of the way I want to be as a parent.

Reilly 2016 Senior Session, Carmel, IN | Photographer : Such Great Heights Photography, Maya Laurent | Model: Reilly | Carmel High School | 2015 | sghseniors.com | senior photography | senior photographer

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

I don’t expect my impact to be monumental or for my name to go down in history. I just think that when I am Christ-centered, I have a huge opportunity to make a difference. Something I’ve heard that has really stuck with me is that my ultimate life goal shouldn’t just be to be happy. That’s selfish. It should be to go to heaven and to take as many people with me as possible. So if I do that, then I think I will have made the kind of impact I want. His plans for me are so much greater than I could ever imagine, and I just want people to know how much fulfillment they can get from living a life for Christ.

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

I can remember aspiring to be many different things – I have always been restlessly indecisive and that continues to be a big part of who I am today. I don’t always know exactly what I want or exactly where I want to be, but one thing that has remained true through 17 years is my simple determination to seek out happiness and love, and surround myself with it!

Who are your role models and why?

Birdy and Lana Del Rey are huge musical inspirations for me. Also Tyler Knott, the author of my favorite book (Chasers of the Light), is a role model of mine because his philosophies have greatly influenced the way I live my life!

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

I want people to remember me as someone who lived spontaneously, made them laugh uncontrollably, and was never afraid to live with their heart over their head!

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

I want to inspire people to remember that you cannot sacrifice any moment in hopes of a better one – the now is the only guaranteed time we have so we must live in it! I want to inspire people to love at every opportunity we’re given to love, and to fearlessly embrace each day because none of them are promised.
