Alexandria Johnson – Georgia Nomination by April Johnson Photography by Amy Honea Photography Issue 49 of Inspiring Teens Magazine
Nomination: Alex has a heart of gold and inspires me to want to be a better mom daily. She has overcome many obstacles in her life and continues to see the good in others. Alex aspires to become an elementary teacher. She is currently dual enrolled in college and assists a local first grade teacher.
What else should we know about you? I own an art business call Watered with Wisdom. I love all things painted. I love Jesus and he is the reason I live each day full of joy, love and so much more. I have the sweetest little sister named Charlotte. She is 8 years old, and I adore being her big sister. She is my world. I try to always be the best role model for her.
What inspiring things about you does your nomination not cover? I have a passion for helping children. I believe it is one of my biggest callings in life. And one day I would love to pursue teaching. The biggest thing I have had to overcome is anxiety. It was and still is a huge part of my life. I have learned how to not let anxiety hold me back from living my life. Anxiety doesn’t control my life anymore. I overcame my anxiety through Jesus. I owe everything to him.
If you were to present a topic to a group of your peers, what would it be and why? My topic would be teaching and helping children. I have a 1st grade class that I help each day. It is my absolute favorite. Creating a bond with a child, is so special to have. Every morning I’m greeted with a big hug from each of them. And when I leave each of them give me a hug goodbye. It’s makes my day every day. They are sweet, fun, loving, silly, and amazing kids. I enjoy each day watching the growth in each of them. It’s so beyond amazing to see the how some of the kids didn’t know how to read that much at the beginning of the year and now can read lots of books with no help. It’s a true blessing to be able to touch and shape and child’s life. That is the sole reason why I would love to become a teacher.
