As we are going on day 4,085 of the quarantine I’m no less inspired by the responses I’ve had from all the brilliant seniors I photographed that are graduating this year. These young adults are so talented, dedicated and resilient during these times. It is in that spirit that I am sharing the “Celebrating the Seniors” blog series. This small gesture of featuring them on my blog is the least I can do to bring some happiness their way during this time when they should be celebrating all they’ve accomplished the last four years.

Cassidy is a front line hero and the next to be featured here on my blog. She is a senior at Oconomowoc High School and currently works at a local hospital as a Certified Nursing Assistant. When I asked her what she thought when the quarantine was announced she told me she was thinking,

“I just want things to go back to normal.”

Cassidy is wise beyond her years. She figured out what she wanted to do with her life early in high school and has been pursuing that goal ever since. Read on to know more about this young, front line hero and show some support by commenting below. Wish her a happy rest of her senior year while you’re at it. She deserves it!

What do you like to do for fun?  I like to spend time with my friends and go do fun things with them!

What was your favorite memory in high school?  My favorite memory was meeting my best friends, going to different events, and being a part of different clubs and honor societies.


What have you learned about yourself during quarantine?
