This adventurous, smiling gal is Annika. I don't think you will ever see this face in a bad mood. Why? Annika places a huge importance on having a joyful spirit. She says, "I learned to always keep a smile on my face no matter how bad my day is because I don't know what someone else might be going through." I think that is a beautiful statement and mindset to have. Faith and family remain at Annika's core in everything she does. She really enjoys being a role model to her little sister and spending time with her family. They enjoy hiking, taking walks, and sharing in activities together.
Annika plans to attend college for early childhood education. God willing, she hopes to get married and start her very own family. Annika is really going to miss her high school friends as she ventures off to college, but she is extremely excited to meet more friends in College. I can't wait to see her spread her wings and fly.
