She is a 4-H member and spends summers preparing her animals for the fair. Hallie is a passionate outdoor enthusiast, enjoying archery, fishing, hunting, and skiing. She is an honor student and a member of the National Honor Society, National Technical Honor Society, and Student Council. She would make an incredible, inspiring teen.
What inspiring things about you does your nomination not cover? My motivation begins with setting a goal and working hard. I want to accomplish what I have set out to do and try constantly to do my best. It doesn't matter what I am doing; my best is what you will see in the completed project. I strive to be a role model to young children and friends. I want to help others to do their best and to shine. Being successful is a personal decision that I make to achieve my goals. I know what I want to do and will find a way to accomplish it.
What else would you like to talk about? I know this is not typical for many girls, but I love hunting and fishing with my family at our cabin in WV. The place is beautiful and peaceful, and the quiet of the woods in the early morning is surreal. Listening to the leaves while walking on a crisp morning is calming and exciting at the same time. The challenge of getting to your spot without being heard right before sunrise is fantastic. Dawn breaks over the mountaintop, and the light is just different. It is the most incredible experience!
What do you feel passionate about or could talk about forever? I have a passion for animals and for caring for them. I have a desire to help them and make sure that they are safe in their environment. I do a lot of dog sitting for people and am responsible for their care. Our family business does a lot to help rescue dogs and cats, sponsoring flights to move them from danger and finding them new homes. It is rewarding to be involved in this; I want to become more involved as I get older.
How did you find your photographer, AH Photography ? What was your experience like? What did you love most about it? I found my fantastic photographer through my friends and other family members.
