“Dare to believe, dare to dream, and dare to love. Never give up, aim for your goals, and be yourself.”

With these words engraved in her heart, senior Nia Boone lives out this life motto in every way.

Boone dares to believe and never gives up. She is strong in her faith and believes she can accomplish anything she puts her mind to. At Mercy, Boone’s accomplishments include mastering the cello, bowling, and serving as the vice-president of the senior class and as the secretary for Tri-M. After school hours, Boone enjoys photography and singing.

“Feel confident,” Bonne said. “Philippians 4:13- I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

Boone dares to dream and aim for her goals.  Ever since a science project in the sixth grade, Boone has dreamt of becoming a meteorologist.

“Hopefully one day I can storm chase a tornado and capture it all in pictures,” said Boone.

She hopes to attend Central Michigan University next fall to double major in atmospheric sciences and broadcasting, along with minoring in music and playing cello in the campus orchestra.

“I have my life already planned,” said Boone.

Boone dares to love and be herself. Family-oriented, Boone often spends the weekend with her grandparents and running errands with her mom.

“I love them so much. They’ve taught me a lot that I know so far,” said Boone. “My grandma taught me the values of life. She always tells me to take over the world every day when I come to school. She gives me a pep in my step.”

No matter where next year takes her, Boone will continue to believe, continue to dream, and continue to love, never giving up on her goals.
