We have less than 20 days left until the glorious day which means one chapter of our life is closing in order to open a new one. To start off the senior spotlight for this week I had the pleasure to interview Ebonie Hicks, a Stafford, Virginia native.
Hicks is majoring in environmental studies with a minor in education. As an environmental study major, they study human interaction with environment in the interest of solving complex problems which include natural and built environment. “It is versatile. The knowledge gives us the keys to create a better world and to bring health and life to people,” says Hicks.
As if college wasn’t hard enough trying to find time for not only yourself but friends and extra activities on the side. From the relationship Hicks has built over the years they help developed her into a strong, confident, personable and extremely busy women. Hicks is not only the captain of the women volleyball team, but she is also a part of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA), Biological Honor Society, Bethel Campus Fellowship, Alpha Gamma Delta and the Black Student Union.
They say your college years are your best, it’s where you find out who you are and what your likes and dislikes are. With a lot of influences around you it’s hard to stay true to yourself and your beliefs. “Be confident in your individuality and don’t conform for anyone or anything,” says Hicks. She continues with, “Be open to meeting new people and realize that we are all in the same situations going through the same things when we first get into college.”
Congratulations Ebonie Hicks for being a part of our community may you continue to build great relationships and build in God’s kingdom.
