What concerns you in the world: I worry about how we will end up solving any of the world’s problems if nobody is able to voice their opinions and ideas while also being accepting of other differing opinions and ideas. I worry that we will never find a way to work together and compromise.
Best friends are people who: Are always there for you no matter what. The perfect quote to describe a best friend is. “A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words.” -Author Unknown
A thank you to someone who helped get you to where you are? Shannon Lynn, my riding instructor. She taught me that the only way to be successful is through dedication and hard work. She was my mentor, friend, and second mother when she didn’t have to be. Without her I wouldn’t have been able to come to Adrian College and I’m so grateful that she always pushed me to do the best that I could.
