2010 Senior Erika Morales



Graduating this year from: Willam M. Davies Jr. Career Technical High School. Favorite subject: She’s in the Cosmotology & Barbering program. “When I was younger, my mom worked a lot and my dad had to do my hair, so I learned pretty fast how to do it myself.” Senior project: She ran her own clinic at school, providing haircuts, manicures, pedicures, and facials, and donated all the proceeds to the American Cancer Society. Recent accomplishment: Getting her college applications in. “I pushed myself to take it seriously, and I got it done.” Recent challenge: Raising her grades so she would have a stronger application. How she did it: “I thought about myself and what I wanted to do in the future.” Favorite Crusade program: College visits. “It’s a chance to see what college life is like. It gives you a different perspective.” Plans to attend: Community College of Rhode Island for two years, then transfer to a four-year college. Field of study: Business. About my Advisor: “It’s definitely helped, being able to go to him and ask about my grades and how to improve them. Just the encouragement to go to college has meant a lot.” Advice for Crusaders going into high school: “Don’t worry too much about what your friends are doing. They won’t always be there when you decide you need to go forward in your life.” What she looks for in a friend: Someone who isn’t all about themselves but who cares about others. Biggest unknown about college: “I feel a little nervous about it. I’m the first in my family to go.”  Dream job: “Owning my own salon. I love doing hair.” What she does for fun: Goes shopping for sneakers.
