Addisyn Bailey – Indiana Nomination by Stacy Bailey Photography by Lisa Cox Photography Issue 76 of Inspiring Teens Magazine
Nomination: Addisyn Bailey is an inspiration to many. She is very active both in and out of school. As a high school sophomore, she is a member of marching band and pep band. And, when she isn’t at school or working her part time job, she can be found at Style Dance Academy where she is on their competitive dance team. Although Addisyn has an extremely busy daily schedule, she maintains excellent grades in all of her classes. Addisyn inspires others with her hard work and dedication in everything she does.
What inspiring things about you does your nomination not cover? I believe I am inspiring to others because I am a positive role model. Not only am I a good role model to my younger sister, I am also a role model to the younger kids at our dance studio. Every week, I assist a tap group and help teach them new steps in order to prepare them for competition season. Furthermore, I am very supportive of my teammates at dance and am always there to celebrate their achievements and help them feel good about all they have accomplished.
What else would you like to talk about? In my free time, one thing I love to do is travel! I have been on many trips to different places and I love the experience of seeing other parts of the world outside of where I live my everyday life. One of my favorite parts of traveling would definitely have to be all of the amazing sights to see. Some of my favorite places I have been to are the Bahamas, the Outer Banks, and Las Vegas. I hope to travel and see more of the world as I get older.
What do you feel passionate about or could talk about forever? I am passionate about music. One way I foster this passion is by participating in my school district's band program. I have been playing the flute for almost five years and have been in multiple band-related activities outside of just a regular concert band class. For example, I have been a member of marching band and pep band for two years, and I have participated in ISSMA Solo and Ensemble Contest for four years. Band has brought me so many opportunities, friendships, and fun memories!
How did you find your photographer? What was your experience like? What did you love most about it? I discovered Lisa Cox through some friends at my dance studio. They were part of her 2023 Teen Model Team, and their pictures were always so cute! As a result, I decided to book a photo session with her for my Sweet 16th Birthday. I had a wonderful experience while doing my photo shoot with her. She let me play my own music playlist and always made sure I was comfortable and liked the pictures as she took them. I love how fun and chill she made it!
