Megan has amazing energy that pours into everyone around her. I love that so many of the questions she answered had to do with spending time with the ones she loves. That is Megan to the core and having only been around her a few times, I could tell that right away. Megan, don’t let that part of you change ever!
What are your favorite activities?
Nothing makes me happier than being around the people I love. I spend a great deal of my free time running Cross Country and Track. Recently I’ve started to love crafting, it seems to be a productive way to keep me occupied.
What activities are you involved with at school or outside of school?
I run cross country and track and am training for those year round. I’m involved in two mentoring programs, one for kindergarten kids through eighth grade kids and one for incoming freshmen. At school I do National Honor Society. I do a bible study through Young Life and am involved in my church youth group. I also have a job at The Runner’s Forum.
Do you volunteer your time anywhere?
I spend a lot of time helping through my church. Whether it’s through Vacation Bible School, teaching Sunday School or raising money for my annual mission trip, I’m kept pretty busy.
What do you do on a typical night out with friends?
Goof off, drive around with the windows down, go for a walk. I’m down for anything spontaneous that’ll create a lasting memory. Also I’ve never been one to turn down a sporting event, particularly a good football game.
What type of music makes you get up and dance?
Who is your favorite band/music artist?
Wow, that’s a tough one. I love every country artist. Every single one. If I had to choose one right now it’d be Luke Bryan. Tomorrow it could be Tim McGraw, who knows?
What movie makes you happy? What movie makes you cry?
Happy – Serendipity / Cry – Serendipity (happy tears)
What TV show are you addicted to?
Reruns of Friends on TBS. Such a classic show.
Do you have a book you could read over and over?
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants
What food does your family cook that you will miss when you go to college?
Everything. I’m still convinced my mom is the world’s best cook.
When you were little, what did you dream of being when you grew up?
An architect who designs unique (and enormous) dream homes.
Who are your role models and why?
My sister. She’s just like me, but she’s made it a little further in life. I follow in her footsteps quite a bit and I know that if she can make it somewhere or accomplish something then chances are I can too. And she’ll be there to support me every step of the way.
What are your hopes/plans for the future?
Well, college. And a loving husband and perfect children. I’ve always said I want to be an architect, but I’m not ready to completely decide, I’m trying to keep my options open.
What do you want people to remember about you when they look back on your senior year?
That I was always surrounded by and there for people I love who love me back. And that we were always smiling, laughing and making unforgettable memories.
What kind of impact do you want to make on the world?
I love the (extremely cheesy) saying “to the world you may be just one person, but to one person you are the world” or something like that. That being said I’d rather have an impact on a few people’s lives maybe by helping them get back on their feet or by showing them Jesus, than somehow “change the world.” I think it’s more realistic anyways.
