Casey Connor- Senior!
Hey! My name is Casey Connor and I'm a senior at Maui High School. I'm 18 years old and I have brown eyes and golden blonde hair. I have two sisters, Kari and Melissa. Kari is 15 and is a freshman at Maui High and Melissa is 23 and attends Stanford University on an academic scholarship. She is studying medicine and already has an internship. My parents names are John and Helen. We moved to Honolulu when I was seven years old. My family used to live in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, but we had to move when my dad got promoted. He is a marine biologist and, since we have arrived in Hawaii, has been working on a landmark project concerning killer whales and their living habits. He also works with sea lions and dolphins. My mom works as the tennis pro at Baretania, our tennis club. My mom's passion for tennis was what started me on the sport. I have been playing tennis since I was four, and over the years, my skill level has advanced to well beyond other girls' of my age. Many people call me "extreme", and I agree! I love to play tennis. Since I was in sixth grade, I have been playing on the varsity team (even though it wasn't allowed). I am a singles player. I don't like to have other people on the court with me because I find that I am too hard on myself or my partner if I play doubles (I have a strong personality). I am also able to focus more when I am competing by myself. Playing tennis for most of the day is the prime reason why I am in such good shape. Also, many hours on the courts have made me glow with a permanent tan! One day, I hope to play tennis in college. My top choice is the University of South Carolina (I really miss it there). My best friend's name is Sara and she is also a senior. She is a soccer player and is attending Arizona State on a scholarship.
