My name is Adam Kennedy and I am the son of David and Vicki Kennedy. I have three siblings two older brothers and a younger brother. They are Justin age 25, Brian age 27, and Nolan age 13. I am 17 years and I am currently a senior at Hanover –Horton I plan on attending a university to study graphic design.
When I was younger I was a very introverted person and I really struggled with making friends, but through the arts I found myself. I started playing French horn in the fifth grade and that was my first exposure to the arts. It wasn’t like school; it was more challenging and interesting. I stuck with it through high school and in high school is where I found theatre. Theatre is where my personality flourished and I found a new meaning in my life. It allowed me to open up in ways that I didn’t think were possible and it’s what I accredit my current self confidence to and it is something I will continue to do and enjoy throughout my life. It is what made me who I am today. I am now a bubbly out going caring person. I have learned to communicate well with others and that has allowed me to work very well in teams. I show a deep understanding for human motions and I can usually relate pretty well to someone who wishes to confide in me. I have a love for talking and sharing my knowledge and that is what I find myself doing frequently. Though I do have strong emotions and I tend to get caught up in them sometimes, I can still think clearly and concisely. I am very good at turning off emotions for a moment and become very analytical to determine the correct course of action for the job at hand. In short I am a wide variety of characteristics all wrapped up into one eccentric defective man. As Ms. K said, “Adam is a hard worker who knows how to have fun. He is one of my most talented actors and a person I am very proud.”
Through the similar minds personality test I learned I was an ENFJ. The “E” is to stand for extroverted. This describes my love of being social and talking to everyone. Then we have the “N” which shows I am intuitive, which means that I am imaginative and creative. I think to the future and always look for new ways to do things. The “F” stands for feeling, which means sometimes I let my feelings take over and use them to make the decision as opposed to using my head to think things through, yet it also means that I can relate to people and have open hearted relationships. Lastly we have the “J” it stands for judging which could mean many things but I like to believe it means driven. I am very ambitious and I strive to succeed.
I and others have always considered me to be a very intelligent person. I have always strived to receive the highest grade I can and have almost always succeeded. I currently have a 3.9, because of one A- that I received as a freshman. I am always highly praised for my performance in class and I work hard to prove that I deserve it. Different from most seniors I made my schedule challenging this as opposed to an easy schedule. I took many classes in which I would be doing hard activities; they include Chem. 2, Calculus and Honors English. When I was a junior I took it upon myself to further my knowledge so I took many classes including an extra math class before school started every day, known as Honors math. At the same time I was taking Honors math I took two other math classes I took trigonometry and pre-calculus. I took the ACT for the first time last year and I received a 26 and though that is not a bad score I believe that I could do better and that is why I am taking it again this fall. I am very interested to get to college and see all of the new experiences there are for me. I’m curious to see where art directing will take me and I am looking forward to ever opportunity.
