ABOUT ME
In what grade did you start at Charlotte Christian?
I came to Charlotte Christian in kindergarten.

Why did you or your parents choose Charlotte Christian?
My family was moving back to Charlotte from overseas, and my parents knew other families that had children at Charlotte Christian and spoke highly of the school. My mom and dad believed Charlotte Christian would challenge me academically and allow me to grow in my walk with Christ.

What co-curricular or athletic events are you involved with, including leadership roles, both in and out of school?
During my time in the upper school at Charlotte Christian, I have been involved with the JV and varsity volleyball teams, varsity swim team, and JV and varsity soccer teams. I am the vice president of the upper school book club and was a member of the 2018-19 Academic WorldQuest team. My senior year I decided to try something new, so I recently participated as an ensemble member in the Charlotte Christian production of High School Musical. Outside of school, I am involved with Girl Scouts, and am currently working on my Gold Award. I lifeguard in the summer, babysit periodically, and am a TCBY crew member. At my church (SouthPark Church), I am on the team that sets up and tears down service equipment, since we are currently meeting in a movie theater, as well as an active youth group member. I have participated in mission trips every year of high school with my church through an organization called REACH, which specializes in home construction repair. I have been to Gettysburg, Pa., Crossville, Tenn., and Birmingham, Ala., with projects ranging from building a handicap-accessible deck and ramp, to re-shingling a roof. Through Charlotte Christian, I have participated in two J-Term mission trips, one to the Dominican Republic my junior year, and one to Haiti my senior year.

HONORS AND AWARDS
Have you earned any honors or awards such as academic honors, honor rolls, athletic awards, fine arts honors, etc.? Have you been selected to attend special conferences or events?
I have been on the Magna Cum Laude or Summa Cum Laude honor roll all four years of upper school and have been named an AP Scholar with Honors. I received the highest-grade award for AP United States History, and the Gordon College Faithful Leadership book award my junior year. My freshman year I earned a leadership award for JV soccer, and another leadership award for swim team my junior year. I have been involved in the school orchestra and choir throughout upper school as well. I am a member of the Tri-M Music Honors Society, National Spanish Honor Society, and the National Honor Society, of which I am the president. I attended Harvard Model Congress in Boston with Charlotte Christian my junior year. The summers before my junior and senior years, I attended the Broyhill Leadership Conference at Wingate University. This workshop included seminars that discussed leadership style and potential in today’s society, as well as how to be a successful individual in the workforce.

COLLEGE AND BEYOND
What colleges have you applied to and which ones have you been accepted to thus far?
I applied to Calvin College, Clemson University, Emory University, UNC-Chapel Hill, UNC-Wilmington, Samford University, University of South Carolina and Wake Forest University. I know, that’s a lot of schools! As of right now, I have been accepted at Calvin, UNC-Chapel Hill, UNC-Wilmington and Samford.

If you know, what would you like to study in college, and what might be your long-term career goals?
As of right now, I plan on following a pre-med track while continuing my Spanish studies. Long term, I would like to either go to PA or medical school. This is all in hopes of me serving on medical mission teams, where I hope to make a difference in the world.

Have you applied for/received any college scholarships?
I received a Trustee Scholarship from Calvin College. I have applied for a Presidential Scholarship at Samford University, and so far, I have received an academic and leadership scholarship from Samford.

CHARLOTTE CHRISTIAN INFLUENCE
What are your favorite subjects at Charlotte Christian and why?
My favorite subjects at Charlotte Christian are United States History and European History, Spanish, as well as Apologetics and World Religions. I love history because it allows me to view the past through an objective lens, seeing how civilizations rise and fall due to choices made. Spanish class has given me a skill I can take beyond the classroom. I think it is crucial in today’s day and age to speak a second language, especially in Charlotte, whose Spanish-speaking community continues to grow! Lastly, Apologetics and World Religions allowed me to understand why Christianity is a credible religion, rather than following it blindly.

Who are some of your favorite teachers at Charlotte Christian and why?
I would say Dr. Headley and Mr. Hoff (US History), Señora Nieto (US Spanish), as well as Mrs. Dean (US English) are some of my favorite teachers at Charlotte Christian. Both Dr. Headley and Mr. Hoff exemplify Godly character in all they say and do. They are extremely passionate about the subjects they teach, which is evident in their desire to see students succeed. Señora Nieto has a passion for international missions, which is inspiring to me. Mrs. Dean helped me become a more confident writer by encouraging me to learn from my mistakes and pushing me to seek improvement.

How has Charlotte Christian impacted you or made a difference in your life? How has Charlotte Christian prepared you for life after graduation?
In a way, Charlotte Christian has been my life considering I have attended since kindergarten. This school has helped mold me into the person I am today. Charlotte Christian has given me incredible friendships and grounded my faith in Christ. Although I do not know what the future holds, I will always be firm in what I believe, thanks to Charlotte Christian.

CHARLOTTE CHRISTIAN INFLUENCE
What are your favorite subjects at Charlotte Christian and why?
Some of my favorite classes at Charlotte Christian have been my junior and senior year Bible classes. Both Mr. Hardy and Mr. Henson challenged me to think about real-life issues involving my faith, in addition to answering many of my questions, both of which makes my faith stronger. I also liked AP Government with Mr. Hoff because I enjoyed learning more about politics, and this class helped me better understand and interpret current events. Lastly, this year, AP Statistics has been one of my favorites because it relates to my future career.

Who are some of your favorite teachers at Charlotte Christian and why?
My favorite teacher at Charlotte Christian is Mrs. Susan Jones. She taught two of my math classes (Algebra 2 Honors and BC Calculus), and I also traveled with her on three J-Term trips (Dominican Republic twice and Disney), which brought us closer together. Another one of my favorite teachers is Mr. Rob Mina who I have for two classes this year - Physics Honors and AP Statistics - and have really enjoyed getting to know him. My favorite coach at Charlotte Christian is Coach Jason Estep who I worked with as a quarterback for the past four years. I am thankful for the ways all my teachers and coaches challenged me in good times and in hard times to be a better student, athlete and overall person.

How has Charlotte Christian impacted you or made a difference in your life? How has Charlotte Christian prepared you for life after graduation?
Charlotte Christian provided me a place where I could grow in my academics, athletics, and in my faith. Academically the curriculum challenged me, and my teachers encouraged me to work hard, something I know I will utilize in college and beyond. Athletically I have been given opportunities to compete for championships year after year and make long-lasting friendships with teammates. This combination is one that no other school could have provided for me - because it was done so in a Christian environment. Most importantly, Charlotte Christian has provided me with relationships with many people that have impacted my life and helped me to grow. This school, the community, and all that it has provided me, has prepared me to be successful in whatever the future may hold, and I will be forever grateful.

Have you applied for/received any college scholarships?

CHARLOTTE CHRISTIAN INFLUENCE
What are your favorite subjects at Charlotte Christian and why?
My favorite subjects at Charlotte Christian have been history and Christian theology and apologetics. I have fallen in love with both the Bible and history departments, and I have gained a special connection with my teachers that I know has fostered many of the passions that I have today. I also have grown to love being in front of camera because of Knights Knews and broadcasting opportunities the school has given me.

Who are some of your favorite Charlotte Christian teachers and why?
All of my CCS teachers and coaches have left a mark on me and it’s hard to pick a few. I want them all to know how important they have been to me even if I’m just naming a handful. Some teachers I have created a close bond and connection with at Charlotte Christian have been Dr. Headley, Mr. Hoff, Mr. Henson, Mr. Cummings, Mr. Fair and Mrs. Nieto. Dr. Headley and Mr. Hoff encouraged my passion to learn about history and politics and inspired me to go down the possible path of political science. With Mr. Henson and Mr. Cummings, I learned so much about Christian theology and the Bible that it has inspired me to be a Sunday school teacher at my church. Mr. Fair and I have created a very tight bond outside of class, and I hope to carry that into my future past high school. Mrs. Nieto has been such a blessing as my AP Spanish teacher this year, but I have also loved being able to talk about things from a global perspective with her.

How has Charlotte Christian impacted you or made a difference in your life? How has Charlotte Christian prepared you for life after graduation?
Growing up in a family where my mom has been a teacher at Charlotte Christian since 2001, CCS has become in a lot of ways like a second family to me. It will be very difficult to leave such an amazing community of people, but I know that with the mindset I have developed and the goals I have set for myself, I feel confident in my future because of the influence that Charlotte Christian had on me.

Mr. Fair stretched me to be creative and do what I love regardless of what others think.
