1. Moving on

I wan born in Chicago and raised in Mount Prospect. I was born on June 10th and I am 16 years old. I went to St. Raymonds for 12 years before coming to prospect freshmen year. As a Junior at Prospect I have learned to move on and that throughout life things happen that you don’t expect or don’t like but that you need to accept it as part of life. I did gymnastics for 9 years before realizing that it just wasn’t for me and now I am apart of the Cross Country and Track & Field team. I love traveling, and have family throughout the United States and in Panama too. I work hard in my classes and hope that someday all my hard work and kindness will pay off.

2. For my song I chose riptide by Vance Joy because whenever I hear this song it brings a smile to my face. I first heard this song at camp and it is something I will never forget, this song always seems to come up when I’m hanging out with friends from camp and even from school and cross country. Every summer for the past 6 years I have gone to Camp Tuck in Wisconsin, for four years I was a camper and I am continuing to go as a counselor. For one week over the summer I get to have fun, be with my friends, and make memories that last forever.

3. On Thursday night at 9:00 I was at work, I work at Capnnari’s Icecream and since I was at work I was unable to take a picture.

This is a picture of my desk where I do my homework which is what I would have been doing if I wasn’t at work.

4. I admire my family: I admire my parents because they are both hardworking but always have time for my siblings and I. I admire my brother because he is always honest but isn’t judgmental towards others. And the third person I admire is my sister because she is always there for me and can be there to talk to all the time.

Left to Right: my Mom, me, my Dad, my sister (Kendall), my brother (Mitchell)

5. My goal in life is to make a difference in other people’s lives and in the world.

This picture is from a mission trip I went to over the summer. I got to help many people who are less fortunate than me and you in effort to make my mark in their lives.

6. (First picture:



The first thing I thought of as life in America is New York. Last summer I went to New York and the one thing that stayed with me was all the hard workers on the streets that have immigrated here for a better life.

The second thing I thought of was business men and women because majority of the people in America work. As Americans we work a lot, trying to live a fulfilling life while raising families, paying off debts, etc..

The third thing I thought of was the 50 states because even though each state is different we are all together as one country living in freedom.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
