You completed TWO major special projects during a pandemic, wrote over 70 pages, and (as I can tell) are only getting started!!”</p><p> “Geneva is a bright and happy soul who touches others in unforgettable ways. She is a talented and creative person who weaves these amazing stories and characters as vibrant as herself. I always see her encouraging others and going out of her to brighten her peers’ days with compliments. I know that these past few years haven’t been easy for her, but despite this, she keeps smiling and laughing that lovely laugh of hers, and I know that she’ll go on to do incredible things.”</p></em><div class="m-3 clearfix"><a href="/commencement/senior-profiles/index.php" class="d-inline-block pull-right"><i class="fa fa-refresh fa-2x"/></a></div></div></div></div>
