If you have never met Maddie, you need to get to know her. Along with being one of the world’s greatest babysitters, she is an amazing kid with a strong faith and many big things ahead. So happy she is one of my senior photography reps this year!
About Maddie: She attends Noblesville High School, Class of 2017 and is aspiring to attend Butler University.
When asked to describe herself: “I am very musical and I love the stage. Performing is my favorite thing to do in the world. I also love to run and be active. I am in the top 1% of my class and actually enjoy school and learning! I try everyday to keep a positive attitude and a smile on my face, for I know that my heart is held by the One who gives me joy regardless of the trials or tribulations this world may bring me.”
She is a really busy kid. In addition to being the oldest of six children and working multiple jobs, she describes a few of the things she is planning to involve herself with this upcoming year: “My senior year will make me a 5-year member of a Noblesville Show Choir, 3 of those being in the mixed varsity choir. My favorite thing in the world is acting onstage, because I can be completely myself and a completely different character all at the same time. The stage gives so many challenges and I love to take them on. I am the Vice President of the National Thespian society, and am also President of National Honor Society.”
She has many passions and especially loves her car: “I am constantly singing and dancing. I also love to be spontaneous, from going on walks around my newly discovered trails or dropping treats on the porches of the people I love with my sisters at 10:00 at night. I also love driving in my red Volkswagen Beetle. Her name is Stella and we’ve gone on some pretty memorable adventures so far. I love watching the stars and spending time with the people I love most. “
When I asked her about her favorite musical artist, she told me: “Everyone who knows me well knows that I couldn’t name a favorite song or artist. Every song that plays on the radio is my favorite song in the moment, and my friends and family always make fun of me for the amount of times I say, “This is my favorite song!” I love listening to Oh Wonder, Adele, Hamilton, Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, LANY, MercyMe, Imagine Dragons, Alessia Cara, and a million more.”
She tells me that Jesus is the one thing that she couldn’t live without, and describes her love for her family: “I have a whopping 8 people in my family, and I am actually the oldest of the six kids! There are five of us girls, and 1 boy (who is also the youngest). I love them all very much.”
She has big goals ahead: “Once I graduate high school, I will hopefully be going to Butler University to study Music Education! I want to teach the beauty of music and make a difference in the lives of my students. I also want to fall in love and get married, and have a big family, just like I do! One of the reasons why I want to be a teacher is so that my occupation and schedule fit with the lives of my children and my husband! I also want to be a worship leader at my church someday, too. ”
