A particularly stressful aspect many freshman encounter as they take their first steps into high school is being exposed to a completely new environment, often times surrounded by complete strangers. One of Brashier’s inspired and motivated seniors, Hannah Clark, faced this phenomenon twice as she entered Brashier her junior year after transferring from Hillcrest. While Hannah describes this chapter in her life as exhilarating, let’s refocus to where it all started.The tale of Hannah Clark all starts in the May of 2000 in the sublime Akron, Ohio.

“I don’t quite remember growing up there, but I definitely remember spending winters there with the snow and everything, and that’s all magical for a kid,” says Clark

Leaving what was a wonderful, wintery atmosphere was difficult for Hannah as she had left a lot of her family in Akron. This was difficult because of her close bonds she holds with her family, especially her grandparents.

“My grandma is like my best friend. We talk a lot and she’s not some weird old hag like most grandmas. She was a big part of my childhood,” says Clark.

She took these hardships to Greenville, South Carolina where she would pursue an activity introduced to her by her grandparents: horseback riding.

Hannah has been horseback riding for a solid thirteen years, but started competing at about age 7 at Clear View Farm. Hannah explains her childhood as a less fond time in her life which radiated the impact of horseback riding to her. Hannah works wonders to balance her social life, academics, as well as a job at Publix.

“I make bank, and I get to work with my boyfriend, Cameron, so that’s a plus,” says Clark.

Lucky, isn’t she? Clark’s well balanced lifestyle doesn’t end here. As a self described health nut, you can always spot Hannah choosing healthier options at lunch, such as greek yogurt with fruit. This aspect of her directly compliments her ambient gym-rat tendencies.

“I discovered my love for the gym two years ago when my great friend, Tony Luu, showed me around Sports Club, and really got me into lifting,” Clark says.

Now trust me, if you have Hannah added on snapchat, you’re bound to see pictures of her working the leg press, or walking from machine to machine to continue to better herself on the daily. To accompany her frequent gym excursions, Clark’s music taste amplifies a determined spirit to set the tone of a strenuous workout.

“Especially over the past year, I’ve really got into rap…[My top three artists] I cannot decide.. That’s too hard for me. My recent artists are J Cole, A$AP Rocky and Drake, but if I had to decide, my favorite artist would be Russ,” says Clark

Inspirational and truly moving music drive Hannah’s purposeful and confident movement. Her motivated tendencies brought her to Brashier for junior year

“I came to Brashier [for one reason], and quote me on this: I needed these college classes in my life. I really wanted to get the opportunity of getting ahead in college with all of the classes offered,” says Clark.

Hannah even went as far as dropping ties with her own friend group at Hillcrest with the intent of starting a more focused attitude. If this doesn’t exemplify the nature of a truly motivated spirit, I’m not sure what does. Hannah’s immense love for health and continual gym visits was catered as she got the opportunity of taking nutrition at the college her junior year. Experiences in Brashier’s famous U.S. History class, led by our fearless Mrs. Divers, made the transition from Hillcrest all the more worth it for Clark.

“Mrs. Divers class added to my appreciation to my already existing love for history with her unique teaching style,” says Clark.

Hannah believes her studies after high school will take her to either Clemson, to reunite her with Cameron, her boyfriend currently enrolled as a Freshman this year, or Wofford, as she has grown a liking to both campuses after visiting each. However, Hannah’s dreams lie in the destination of London, or ‘the magical’ Chicago, where some of her family resides.

“I was very interested in the University of Chicago, but my mom hit me with the, ‘we can’t afford out of state, Hannah,’ so my college choices dramatically changed after that,” says Clark.

As a high schooler, and especially a senior, we tend to regret choices that we made earlier on in our high school life.

“I don’t know… When it comes down to it, with the ‘What would you do differently’ questions, I wouldn’t change anything in my life, because I cannot narrow it down to a perfect situation that relates to this… So right now [in my life], it’s perfection, despite all the hardships coming into Senior year,” says Clark.

Hannah takes on her final year at Brashier alongside the Bengal Beat. Clark looks forward to writing about how she truly feels on matters, as being behind a computer screen relieves the stress and pressure of stating your beliefs and opinions face to face. She feels strongest and most passionate about her writing typing at two A.M.m, and believes those who do not know her will get a taste of who she really is. It is a fitting end to a long four years for the fierce strong-willed senior, as it is these years she will discover herself in ways nobody else can see blossom into society, and walk the streets as the coolest ginger you’ll ever meet.

 

“Growing up and realizing that everything goes by unimaginably fast, I have to look towards the future and remind myself that I can’t waste time not doing, so I have to take advantage of the time I have now so that I don’t regret anything looking back,” says Clark.
