Lindsey Maye Carpenter

By: Brianna Helms

Lindsey Maye Carpenter was born on May 19, 1994 in Rowan County, North Carolina. Growing up, Lindsey only had one sister, Beth. Although Beth is Lindsey’s only sibling, Lindsey always valued the importance of family. Lindsey’s first pet was a German Sheppard named Sammy. As a child, Lindsey enjoyed Titanic because of her favorite actor, Leonardo Decaprio.

On her 7th birthday, Lindsey got the best thing she could ever ask for. She had a pool party at her grandparents’ house with all her friends and family to celebrate. After having her cake, her grandparents surprised her with a camouflage four-wheeler. This birthday is known today as one of Lindsey’s best childhood memory.

When Lindsey was 17, she received her first car, a 1999 Chevy Malibu. When she turned 18, she got her first job at Food Lion in Mount Pleasant. Currently, she is a student at Stanly Academy Learning Center and she wants to make her future successful. In the future, Lindsey plans to go to college and enlist in the Air force.

            On the day of April 1st, 1996 Brianna was born in Albemarle. All together, she has six siblings. She has changed three different high schools in the past two years. She plans to go to college after high school. She has been through many experiences in life that have made her into the person she is today.

In her spare time, she enjoys watching football and playing tennis. She would prefer an inside vacation because she doesn’t like insects or snakes. If she could, she wants to live in Highpoint, NC. If she could, she would erase her freshman year.  Brianna is a very independent person because she believes she can only rely on herself.

In her future, she wants to apply to college and be able to work for child services and or become a nurse. She admires her dad, because she considers him to be her hero. “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery. If we worry about yesterday’s history and tomorrows mystery, we never have time to just enjoy life”, is a motto she lives her life by for obvious reasons. Brianna is a wonderful person and a great friend.
