She's my 1st Senior Model. Can I tell you how much I am loving this project?
Okay, okay, back to Jori!
Jori is currently a junior at Portage Central High School - home of the Mustangs!
I have known Jori since she was just a twinkle in her mama's eye. I have had the pleasure of watching this little girl grow into an amazingly beautiful person, inside & out.Jori is a very ambitious girl - in fact when asked what one word would best describe her, she stated "Vivacious"! Which is to be lively, animated, exuberant, full of life!
And this girl is just that - full of life. Being the oldest of 3, she is an awesome role model for her 2 younger brothers.
She thoroughly enjoys meeting new people, maybe that's why she's so good at her after school job as a restaurant hostess and waitress.
Jori is very involved at her high school in Forensics (competitive speaking), where she competes in the poetry event. She's a part of her high school's Montage club - a creative writing publication & a Staff Writer for their school newspaper, The Stampede.
Her favorite thing(s) - a notebook and a pencil. A girl after my own heart. Jori states she could probably type out her thoughts, but she finds more pleasure in writing out her thoughts with her hands!
If and when she has free time, she & her friends like to try out new things & visit new places. Cooking from recipes they find online, shopping, talking, and just being together. And because her favorite "food" is coffee, exploring coffee shops in our area with her friends is a must do on their list!Jori's future plans are college - and I know she's leaning towards a favorite college of our family. (Go Hope!) Her goal is to pursue a career in Public Relations, with a degree in communications & psychology.
I remember vividly watching this little itty bitty baby girl communicating with her mama via sign language when she wasn't old enough to form words yet. Please, thank you, more and many other's words were her form of talk and so it's no surprise that she wants to work with communications!
Did I mention that she is currently the anchor for her high school's weekly broadcast for their S.A.I.D. (Sports & Activities Information Department) program & they upload them to YouTube on their school website? Talk about communicating!
So with that - I want to thank Jori from the bottom of my heart for being a guinea pig and helping me kick off this new branch for Patti.G.Photographywww.pattigphotography.com. I wish nothing but the best for you in your future plans and I'm very sure you will succeed in whatever you reach for!
Today is your day.
You're off to Great Places!
You're off and away!
You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself
any direction you choose.
You're on your own. And you know what you know.
And YOU are the person who'll decide where to go."
