I'm SO excited to be interviewing Casey Oates this week for my Baylor Personality Profile Story. She is a Senior here at Baylor University, and has a vast experience in dance. She is one of the officers in the Baylor Dance Company and even performed in After Dark this year. I know she plans on majoring in education, and I'm looking forward to finding out what her obstacles have been, and what she plans on pursuing in the future.
I'm so happy, because personally, I think I nabbed one of the best people at Baylor to interview. Not only is she majorly talented, but she has one of those graceful and energetic personalities that light up a room instantly.
I also know that she happens to be going through a personal hardship right now, facing one of life's most challenging adversities. Her mother was diagnosed with Breast Cancer, and has been under going treatments the past couple of months. Having personally been affected by a similar situation (an unfortunate situation others in society can relate to as well) I know that when a parent is sick, it takes a HUGE toll on your own life.
I'm thrilled to have my lunch date with Casey this week, and uncover all the details, challenges, and successes she has accomplished thus far, making her the incredible, woman she is today.
