Alyssa is another member of the MGP Class of 2020 Senior Model team and it has been so incredible to have her be a part of it all! It has been a lot fun to watch her take part in all of the different shoots and to see her personality come through! Alyssa is a little reserved and shy at first, but when she gets comfortable she is a lot of fun to be around!
Alyssa has been a lot of fun to spend time with during photo shoots; she is quick with the sarcasm and she goes along with all of my crazy ideas and pretends she doesn't think they are crazy! :)
We've had quite a few different photo shoots together and I think my favorite one with her was probably her individual senior session. Traipsing through the mud to get to a Missouri Crossing always sounds good in theory, until you have to do it. And then the current is a little strong and almost takes you out. But those are memories, right, Alyssa?
She's a beast in the discus ring and I am incredibly bummed for her to miss out on her senior track season. But this girl still has big things coming!
Alyssa did fill out her questionnaire pre-pandemic and some of her answers reflect that.
Me: What are your major accomplishments your senior year? What are you most proud of?
Alyssa: "This year I am proud of myself for trying new things. I auditioned for a school play and got a part. I have also been broadening my horizons and learning more about my community as I volunteer at the Henry County Heritage Trust Museum every week."
Me: I know the year isn't quite over just yet; do you have any big plans to finish out the year? Is there something you are looking forward to before graduation?
Alyssa: "I am looking forward to competing in the 2020 track and softball seasons. I have also gotten a part in the upcoming school musical. During my high school years I have learned that I love performing. I can’t wait to portray my character on stage!"
Me: Were you involved in any sports or extra curricular activities? If yes, please list them below.
Alyssa: "Yes, this year I participated in school activities such as a football manager, fall play, spring musical, show choir, track, and softball. I have also spent time this year volunteering at the local museum."
Me: What's your plan for this summer?
Alyssa: "This summer I plan to take a trip to Washington D.C and New York City with the music department from my high school. I plan to finish my high school career by playing softball. I also want to spend my summer with my family and friends before I start my life’s new adventures."
Me: What does the future have in store for you? Have you already picked your school? If so, what major? (Or explain whatever future plans you have below).
Alyssa: "I plan to attend Hawkeye Community College to participate in their track program and begin my educational path to become an elementary teacher."
Me: What are your absolute favorite images/sets from your senior session?
Alyssa: "My two favorite sets from my senior session were the pictures that were taken behind What Cheer tavern and the images that were taken at my great great grandparents farm. I loved the rustic backdrop of both sites and including a piece of my family's history at the farm."
