Senior Thesis Title: 
The Dangers of Exercise Addiction

Senior Thesis Statement: 
Exercise addiction can affect individuals physically, mentally, and spiritually, as it can damage one’s relationship with themself, with others, and with God. 

Brief Description of Senior Thesis: 
Throughout the prevalence of modern exercise culture, people tend to have forgotten the original purpose of exercise and all that the fitness industry has to offer. It has become something that is viewed only as a means to an end rather than something whose journey is to be enjoyed. My thesis focuses on the repercussions of addiction to exercise, specifically its physical, mental, and spiritual effects. 

Post Graduation Plans: 
To study exercise science at the University of Memphis. 

What advice or encouragement would you give to younger students at Westminster?
Make as many memories as you possibly can because although it doesn’t seem like it, the time will fly by and you will wish you had stopped to enjoy each moment just a little more. Soak up time spent with friends and family. 

Please share a funny memory or highlight from your time at Westminster:
One of my funniest memories was in 10th grade when Alicia’s chair tilted sideways and she started falling so she thought it would be a good idea to grab her desk, but the whole thing fell over with her onto the ground. She looked as if she was falling in slow motion and by the time she hit the ground, everything fell out of her desk and was scattered on the floor with her. 

Favorite Bible Verse: 
“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand” (Isaiah 41:10).

Prayer Request: 
Pray that I will have a bright future as I go off to college and continue to walk with Christ through the new paths of my life.
