Nomination: Connor Crislip immediately makes a good first impression on everyone he meets. The first time I met Connor it wasn’t his big, charming smile that drew me in immediately, it was his respectful mannerism. Connor displays qualities that make him stand out as a role model among his peers. Connor is a high school senior who exemplifies leadership and uniqueness. Connor is a member of my Team of Senior Influencers and displays the qualities of integrity that our next generation of leaders should aspire to. I proudly nominate Connor as an Inspiring Teen.
What would you most like to be interviewed about? I would like to be interviewed about lacrosse. I have been playing lacrosse for about 5 years now last year our team went the furthest any team before us has gone to the second round of the playoffs. I am the lacrosse team captain and it feels good for people to respect you and trust you as much as my teammates do. I am the Goalie for Southeast Lacrosse a position I didn't see myself in when I first started. They asked who wanted to be Goalie at the first practice I attended and no one made a sound so that was when I decided that the position I wanted to play somewhere where not a lot of people can play I wanted to challenge myself. Now we have gotten lots of coverage from the local newspaper and we have many new kids this year coming out for lacrosse. We also were able to start a Southeast Girls Lacrosse team.
What inspiring things about you does your nomination not cover? I am actually an aspiring photographer and film maker I recently got accepted to Kent State University for Digital Media Production. I take photos for my friends and edit them. I love editing and photography. I also love sports so I will take pictures of my friends wrestling. I am not a part of yearbook because I decided I wanted to be able to shoot what I wanted. I have given some of my pictures to yearbook for them to be used. I want to either work for the NFL, be a creative director or even a freelance photographer. My biggest inspiration for becoming a creative director is Cole Bennett he has his own company called Lyrical Lemonade and makes great music videos for my favorite artists.
If you were to present a topic to a group of your peers, what would it be and why? I feel like I could talk forever about music. I love almost all types of music. This is my release there is no better feeling then having a hard day and then turning on the music and losing yourself. I love rap, hip hop, R&B, Classic rock, blues and Country. I could talk about many different artist I like such as Kanye West, Dre, Lil Uzi Vert,21 savage, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Johnny Cash, Green Day, Oasis, etc. Those are just some of my favorites. Currently I am learning guitar and how to make beats online. I love the musical process and having fun with it. Me and my friends will listen to music constantly while hanging out.
