This is what this amazing senior wrote on her questionnaire when I asked:

What is one thing you'd like to do when you graduate?

"For a very long time I have been going to Haiti as a sort of selfish vacationer on a private part of the island, and I have been looking at the islanders as just additions to my vacation.
But, I would love to go there someday and give them the help that they need instead of taking from them as a part of my ‘vacation experience.’ In the future, even if it isn’t Haiti, I would love to be a teacher for children in a country where children often times do not get to learn.
I would love to experience the promise that so many undiscovered children in less fortunate countries have and play a part in getting them out of their poor situations, or at least providing some improvement.
This is a recent desire for my life, but I want to be a missionary and give people a chance at a wonderful life.
Growing up, I have had a wonderful life, and I haven’t deserved any of it, so I want to give it all back by being used for the lives of people no matter what way that may be!"

In addition to being an amazing artist she has a pretty big heart and I loved that about her.
It was so great to be invited into her personal space and to see her work.

I know she will do amazing things in her life and I wish her the very best.
