Kiely is not only Valedictorian for her class, she completed an Associates Degree while in high school at the STEM Academy!
I like to find out a little about my seniors when I photograph them and Kiely is an absolute delight. When asked about her favorite music, this was her answer, "Ooof, so many its hard to chose. I have about a million in every genre, but all time probably Slow Dancing in a Burning Room (really anything John Mayer), Georgia by Vance Joy, and like all worship music!"
Her favorite personality trait is her compassion for other people.
So after 10 years, I gave up volleyball for singing. It was a super tough decision, but now I have been leading worship at my church for two years and cannot get enough! In addition to leading worship, I am super involved with school and am my Student Body President. Lastly, I love running, spring time in Texas is kind of my favorite!
I wanted to know what she enjoys doing in her free time: "What is free time? Kidding, but seriously I stay so busy! Usually if I have free time I take a nap because I'm so worn out."
As far as favorite quotes go, she couldn't narrow it down to one: "Quote: The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.- Eleanor Roosevelt
Bible Verse: Romans 5:13- May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit."
Kiely's favorite memory: "I don't know that I can pick just one, but every year growing up my family and I visited my grandparents lake house in Northern Minnesota and I don't know that there is anywhere that will ever feel more like home."
