I always love working with twins. It’s amazing to me to see how similar, yet vastly different, two humans can be. Tyler and Ali are as unique from each other as their eye colors, yet they share the same best friend. =D. Both are going to Clemson, unintentionally!
I could try and emcompass the beauty of this gal with my own words, but you’ll get a beautifully painted picture from her’s:
“Little story of mine : started high school as a broken young girl with big insecurities. High school popularity and pressure to fit in really did get the best of me. These insecurities that I had deep down were what was guiding my every move. I look back and I see a girl who would give into things God never had in store for her. I made poor decisions and treated people badly. My heart would try to compensate for my insecurities by saying and thinking things that were insanely selfish and self conceded…”
This sweet girl has a laugh that is beyond infectious. She is full of joy, easy to talk to, and has a welcoming presence about her. Which I find appropriate since that’s what she wants to be remembered for. I asked Dani what she wants her peers to remember her for and she said, “I really hope my classmates remember me as joyful and kind. I always think of it in the sense of “when I walk across the stage at graduation in front of my school what do I hope they think of me in that moment”. I’d like to think they would remember me making them laugh or smiling at them in the hallway, or just simply being a welcoming person!” I think she has that in the bag!
Lauren describes herself as genuine, compassionate, and a leader. I like to ask seniors what advice they would give their freshman self. Lauren said, "I would have said to step out of your comfort zone with friendships. I often stayed in my safe friendship bubble--surrounding myself with people who believed like me, but I realized you can't influence the world and those around you if you look just like it!" YES GIRL.
