She hopes to become a person who helps others that struggle with life due to their mental health.

Describe your senior year in three words. 

Challenging. Quick. Eye-opening.

What are your plans after graduation? 

I plan to attend the University of West Georgia to pursue a bachelor's degree in psychology. I then plan to continue for my Masters and Doctoral degree in psychology, in hopes to become a psychologist.

Who or what was most helpful or influential to you in your high school career, both in school and outside of school? 

My family were the most influential people to help me throughout of my high school career. They all push me to be the best version of myself, both in school and outside of school, and constantly remind me to chase after my aspirations.

What extracurricular activities did/do you participate in high school?

I've participated in softball for 4 years, basketball for 3 years, football (as a trainer) for 2 years, track for 2 years, FCA for 4 years, Beta Club for 3 years, FBLA for 2 years, and Enhanced for 1 year.

In my spare time, I... 

I like to paint, draw, and read. My favorite things to paint and draw are characters from the shows I like to watch. My favorite books to read are mysteries, romance comedies, and comic books.

What was your dream job as a kid? Are you still pursuing that same dream? 

My dream job as a kid was to become a world-famous artist. Though I plan to become a psychologist, I still plan to include my passion of art in my future.

hope to be a person who... 

who helps others that struggle with life because of their mental health, as well as someone who can help make the world a safer place for everyone.

I will never forget...

the time my twin brother, Shane Moore, and I spray painted a giant warrior head on the football field for homecoming. It was such a fun bonding experience, and the warrior head came out awesome!

If you could create one mandatory course for future seniors, what would it be?

As boring as it might sound, if I could create one mandatory course for future seniors, it would be a financial literacy class. One thing that has hit me hard my senior year is figuring out a way to pay for college, as well as how to file for taxes and how to handle money responsibly. I believe a financial literacy class could help teach future seniors how to overcome these kind of things.
