I love being outdoors in my flowers and will soon be taking an Agriculture Course to become a Master Gardener. I love riding horses. I am a true animal lover. I am an artist and I was awarded a Superlative in high school by my peers as "Most Creative". I love painting, sculpting, photography, and computer graphic work! I have won poetry competitions, photography competitions, and several art awards. I have won a State Competition for the North Carolina Voters Registration site, and I also did several photographs that I am very proud of because...they were used by President Obama's campaign, one used in a video shown at the Democratic Convention, and two photographs used in a video shown at Grant Park in Chicago the night he was elected.

We also filmed high school sports throughout the State where I did all of the graphics. We filmed the National Sportscaster & Sportswriters Association Awards yearly, and we also have filmed the Olympic Swim & Diving Team competitions. Two evenings a week I ran the station placing commercials in the appropriate spots and switching shows on the air.
