I was born and raised in the Blue Ridge mountains. I was 13 when I was saved. I am 16 years old and a junior Mountain Area Christian Academy. I spend most of my time on a court or field of some type for volleyball, basketball and the occasional soccer season. I have volunteered and participated in the Blue Ride annual turkey trot since 2012. I am very excited to be the 2017/18 student director, I am looking forward to this year’s turkey trot more than ever, and hope to see you all there! Go Vols!
