Hey y’all! My motivation behind this segment is to acquaint y’all to some of the most inspirational and fabulous women I know. Each Wednesday you’ll be introduced to another “Belle”, get to know them, and gain a little knowledge. Let’s get started!
Meet: Alexandra Laabs
Olivia: Where do you go to school?
Alexandra: “I currently attend Arundel High School and am a senior!”
Olivia: How do you describe your style?
Alexandra: “Classic, conservative, modest. I think a good pair of shoes can completely change an outfit, also the way you feel and carry yourself. I would rather have less clothes and better quality than many clothes of low quality”
Olivia: What’s something that makes you unique?
Alexandra: “My moms side of the family lives in Spain, and so I get visit every now and then. I speak Spanish fairly well”
Olivia: What’s your favorite season?
Alexandra: “Aghhh I’m tied between summer and fall. I love sunshine and bathing suits, but I also love leggings, light jackets and stepping on crunchy leaves.”
Olivia: All time favorite nail polish?
Alexandra: “Tangerine Tango Crème by Sephora”
Olivia: What’s something you can’t live without?
Olivia: What’s your go-to order at Starbucks?
Alexandra: “Hot Chocolate, I’m boring”
Olivia: What are your social media links?
Olivia: What are your thoughts on friendships?
-be nice to people
-smile as much as you can
-join clubs that interest you
-introduce yourself to others
-have an open mind
-make new friends
-keep your schedule close
-be nice to your teachers. this will be well worth when you are 2 points away from your desired grade at the end of the semester, as it always seems to be. plus most of them are pretty cool.
-work hard academically. Freshman year is a great time to build up your GPA, your classes will only increase in difficulty, so take advantage of them while they’re still manageable.
-find a balance between school and friends! work hard during the week, and make it worth it on the weekends.
-be afraid to speak
-lose touch with your old friends
-hesitate to use your resources; ask teachers questions, talk to them if you’re having trouble, ask upperclassmen about their experiences.
-do anything you don’t want to do
High school is a bigger place with more people and even more opportunities to do what you like. There’s something for everyone, don’t be afraid to experiment! There are so many chances to meet new people, take them! Always say hi. Most importantly, remember to have fun and don’t let the stress that will eventually come overwhelm you. Breathe. Smile.”
