Nomination: Ciera Akey is an amazing student and athlete. She works hard at everything she does. Her kindness, motivation, and personality, naturally inspire people around her.
I started playing soccer when I was in first grade. What I love most about soccer is the sportsmanship, the hard work, and overall just playing the sport.
When we won the 3 titles, it was so relieving after all of the hard work my team put in. To win, we all had to show up and work hard. We decided if one team runs a mile, we would run two.
Once the game was over, everyone in the stands rushed the field. It was an amazing feeling, and we all celebrated by getting Dairy Queen and taking pictures.
What I love most about my team is the bond we all have. Not only on the field did we have a bond, but outside of our sports too.
The new record we set was winning all three of the titles: LVC conference champions, tournament champions, and finally, district champions.
I would love to have the chance to play for the United States women’s national soccer team. I’d love to play anywhere outside of the US.
To win academic honors, I had to grind all my schoolwork. I made sure to get all my work in on time; I even resorted to a tutor when I was stuck in math.
This accomplishment is proof of the hard work I put into school and how it pays off.
I am a very hard-working and driven person; on top of excelling in academics, I love to hang out with my friends and family and surround myself with people that make me happy. For a long time now, I've love all sorts of music genres and I love putting together outfits.
I am the youngest in the family of six. My family and I are very close; I have two sisters who are both in college and live with my parents.
One of my favorite family memories that I have is when my family and I took our boat to Chicago. We went on a ten day trip and had a lot of fun.
My friends would say that I’m very outgoing and go to whatever measures to support the people close to me. I value and cherish your relationships with friends, family, and others. I am very confident in who I am and that confidence and sense of self flows onto others when I’m around them.
