This year I will be striving for change in the blogging department…like allowing people to see more completely, the photos I take. Let’s be honest, it’s been about 100 years since my last post. Give or take a few. 😉 So, I thought I’d start with some of my outstanding senior models from the class of 2016. Last year at this time I asked for a few of my chosen models to write a little about themselves, finishing this statement: I am most likely to…….. what? I loved what Gabby wrote so I thought I’d start with her. What a gem of a girl. I was so proud to have her on the team this past year!
Here’s what she wrote: Mostly Likely to Serve Others
It is said that true leaders always lead by serving others first before themselves. Reaching out to those in need, having compassion for others, and greeting friends, family, and strangers with a smile on your face is what brings true beauty to life. I love to make people happy; I strive to make sure that everything is cool, calm, and collected in my life. I am able to reach out to others and do things for people by participating in my high school’s student government and by helping out my class as much as I can. More recently, I have been pushing myself to look beyond my selfish ways and serve others first. Let me tell you, it is a great feeling! Rather than being jealous of others (I tend to become green with envy at my close to perfect friends) I chose to support my friends and family members by opening my heart to their wonderful accomplishments. There is no better feeling in the world than the feeling one can get when they give all that they can. By lightening the burdens of others, it makes the world a better place. You can serve others just by being there for those who need a friend to talk to or a shoulder to cry on. Every young girl should know that true beauty can be found in those who are most likely to serve those around them.
Thank you Gabby for your willingness to share from your heart. I absolutely loved working with you this year. Best of luck to you as your step out into this world serving others and winning everyone over with that genuine smile!
