My name is Scarlett Allison Celeste Miller, I have four siblings, one in college two in high school and one in elementary. I attend Spartanburg Methodist college I’m majoring in business and plan to continue onto the university of South Carolina upstate for a four-year college education. I enjoy doing hair and makeup, hanging out with friends and enjoy being a part of the SMC troubadours. My goal in life is to continue to break through as many barriers in my life as possible. Some of my previous achievements in life would have to be being adopted by my wonderful parents and walking across the stage in my cap and gown and receiving my diploma. I plan to make an example for all foster kids who doubt themselves or feel self-conscious about who they are. We are a special kind of human being, ones who can never be broken.
