While Jaimie’s resume and transcript may read like it has been strategically constructed to impress, the truth is that she has merely followed her personal interests and nourished her insatiable hunger for learning. She relies on self-reflection and relaxation techniques to help her deal with the stress of her rigorous schedule. Jaimie loves a good conundrum. She develops lines of reasoning rich with creativity and critical thinking. Jaimie is articulate and enjoys listening carefully to others while engaging in spirited rhetorical dialogues. Mr. Inendino states the “Jaimie Spahr is a passionate and dedicated leader in our school community. She has high expectations for everything she does, and her peers strive to reach a higher level of achievement because of the standard she sets. Mr. Miller says that “Jaimie is an outstanding leader.
