“Oh, Spring! I want to go out and feel you and get inspiration.
My old things seem dead. I want fresh contacts, more vital searching.” – E. Carr
Daisy is an old-fashioned name that I absolutely love. It brings to mind sunshine, flowers, and springtime, and it’s surely fitting for this darling, bright-eyed senior. She is part of the Class of 2019 at Sunnyslope High School, and one of the first things you’ll notice about her is her beautiful gaze. The combination of her eye color and her spunky personality is a knockout. As the sun has started to peek out, along with all the pretty springtime blooms, I have gotten even more excited to meet each senior for their shoot.
If you ask Daisy what her biggest accomplishment has been thus far, she will tell you that it would be making it into Sunnyslope’s top level choir, Vocal Ensemble (as a sophomore). “I’ve been in choir for six years now, and it’s been one of my greatest accomplishments because Vocal Ensemble is a class that normally, only juniors and seniors make it into”, she explained, “I am also involved in theater as well as choir.” The Spanish Honor Society rounds out her academic honors, but she puts hundreds of hours into her philanthropic and volunteer work within the community. She’s logged over 200 hours with the Boy Scouts at their Cub Scout day camp, and another 100 hours with Camp Civitan. Camp Civitan is an organization for special needs adults that allows them to experience independence and a range of activities (such as camping, sports, hiking, etc.), and it’s near and dear to Daisy’s heart. Although this bright young woman has many changes coming as she approaches graduation, she is ready for them all and says, “Change is something most people fear, but without it, I get very stressed out! I love different styles and having grand new experiences, and I really can’t live without change”. With that sort of attitude, she will take on whatever life brings next with the outlook that has brought her this far. Congratulations, Daisy!
