TOMORROW’S LEADERS TODAY: Self-professed bookworm ready to set sail into the world
Striving for success is a part of life when it comes to 17-year-old Re’Miyah Hall.
She received her first award as a first grader for reading 136 books.
“I was a bookworm. I got all the incentives; ice cream, t-shirts, everything,” said the Baldwin High senior.
But the awards don’t stop there. Hall has recently received first place in not only the science fair, but also tech fair and will be attending state competition.
Hall is a member of Beta club, Chick Fil-A Leader Academy, and the Student Advisory Council with the Georgia Board of Education.
“I really enjoy the student advisory council. I get to attend meetings with the state superintendent to discuss laws pertaining to school and public education,” she said.
Hall also said she is interested in going to local government meetings to get more involved in the community.
“We have the Boys & Girls Club, but I would like to start going to encourage the community to incorporate more recreational activities for kids in our community,” she said.
When asked what she is passionate about, Hall replied, “I am passionate about my future.” The soon-to-be graduating senior said she refuses to fail.
“I know life can be hard sometimes, but I’m striving for generational wealth,” she says.
The most influential person in Re’Miyah’s life is her mother, Quita Pinkston.
“My mother has literally broken her back for me. She goes to work and still manages to get me to school, take me to work after school, and attend my award ceremonies when I have them. And that’s what keeps me striving. I want to give back to my mom to show her how much I appreciate all of the hard work she’s been doing for me,” she said.
Hall has already ready received eight college acceptances, but is still awaiting responses from a few more colleges. When asked if she has any idea of where she would like to attend, she responded that she is pretty set on Georgia State University.
Her dream in life is to become an entrepreneur. “I’m not sure what I want my major to be in college yet, but I know I want to be an entrepreneur.”
When asked if she had the opportunity to meet anyone, present or future, Hall said, “I would love to meet my future self, and ask her if she accomplished all of her hopes and dreams.”
