A CreateAthon hero
This might sound cheesy, but seriously, Peyton is my hero.
I could seriously go on and on about her. Everyone always has that one teacher or that one professor that’s pushed them to excel, but at the same time, they’ve done it in a way that has made you love what you’re doing. I had a teacher in high school like that. He’s one of the reasons I’m a good writer and why I love English.
Peyton is the teacher that is your mentor and crazy friend all in one. She draws out the passion in you (and I mean this in a good way). Where others may not understand, or may want you to do things their way, she wants you to look inside yourself and explore further. She wants you to be the best you can be. And with everything that just happened with CreateAthon, I have to admire her even more. Giving time out of her schedule every year to help students that give back to nonprofits and the community, is something that cannot be overlooked. On a sidenote, I may be partial to the subject because I enjoy doing nonprofit work and giving back.
But nonetheless, in my eyes, Peyton is a hero.
