Senior Feature: Alyssa Williams

By: Kaelin Hughes/Content Editor

“The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is the little ‘extra.'”

Alyssa Williams’ senior year may be coming to an end, but she will always be able to look back on it and smile. During her time at Blue Ridge, Williams has participated in Big Brothers Big Sisters, choir for two years, qualified for District Chorus, and was involved in theater related activities, specifically the production “My Fair Lady.” She also attended Vo-Tech at the Susquehanna County Career and Technology Center for cosmetology, and has held a part-time position at Dunkin’.

After high school, Williams plans to take night time classes at Scranton School for the Deaf to become fluent in sign language with the ultimate goal of being a sign language interpreter. She believes these next few years will be challenging, but ultimately worth it, knowing that it will help her get farther in life, no matter the responsibilities and difficulties that come with being alone. Her dream job is to be a sign language interpreter or pursue singing.

Williams leaves the underclassmen with the advice to “just do the work. I cannot stress that enough. Even though it may seem like the biggest pain and no one wants to do it, it’s the only way you’re going to pass and get things done.” She also stresses to make school a priority, ignoring the trivial drama that someone may face, because at the end of the day, the hard work is what they’ll remember most when they accomplish their goals.”

Alyssa Williams may be leaving Blue Ridge, but is excited for bigger and better things.
