“When you go through deep waters I will be with you.” -Isaiah 43:2
Carissa Zawiski is finally a senior, and despite being anxious about leaving familiar faces, she’s excited about the new opportunities she’s going to encounter.
Although her dream job would be a “Social Media Influencer on Tiktok,” Zawiski plans to obtain a Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education. While she’s still deciding where to attend college, she says that she will most likely be going to Suny Broome for two years, and then transferring to Binghamton University.
Throughout her days at Blue Ridge, Zawiski has been very involved in school related activities. She is a current member of National Honors Society (3 years), and is the Editor in Chief for the Raider Reader. She has also been a Varsity cheerleader for 3 years, and is currently a Co-Captain of the team. She’s been doing competitive cheerleading since she was 6 years old.
Zawiski would like to leave the underclassmen with the following advice, “Make a difference. Your time in high school will work to shape you as a person, try to do things that count. Take the time to give back to others- even if it’s in a small way. Make your time matter.”
