Student Council is an incredible opportunity to step up and lead among your peers. It is an awesome opportunity to bond with other people in your grade and in other grades. It has helped me grow as a leader and as an individual.
Davidson Academy is a God-focused school.  How does that impact life at DA and what does it mean to you?
DA is a school where everything is focused on Christ. In all subjects from Government to Foundations of the Faith, Christ is mentioned and taught. It has been an incredible experience to grow up in a school where I am challenged to learn scripture and look back to what God's Word says about specific topics and issues.
What would you tell someone who was interested in attending Davidson Academy?
I would say that DA is an incredible school built on fun and on Christ. It has furthered my walk with Christ so much. I love DA because of the atmosphere and the incredible teaching abilities of all the teachers here.
What has DA taught you about being a leader?
DA has showed me that being a leader doesn't need to be in a high role somewhere. Being a leader can be something as little as picking up trash or holding the door for someone. Being a leader is something done with integrity and done without pride.
What activities do you participate in outside of school?
I am currently helping lead a ministry called Movement Ministry. I am also part of the student lead team at our church.
