Determination. That’s what she said is the one characteristic that defines her. I can totally see that being true about Alex. She has a dynamic personality, even just from what I’ve seen in her. Quiet, yet fun-loving and quick to smile and laugh.
What impressed me the most about Alex’s submission to the Senior Rep program, was her eloquence and accomplishments. Hers was a long list of student activities, community activities with her mom, tempered with an eloquence and business-savy approach. Really, she was rather hard to resist for admission to the Senior Rep program.
We met in Deep Ellum for a fast session. We had about 45 minutes before we completely lost sunlight, so we moved quickly around the area and still were able to knock out about 20-30 images. Her application mentioned an interest in fashion, and I loved her outfit. It wasn’t what I typically see kids wearing everyday. It suited the location– edgy and urban.
