A Step Above: A Step Above – Sophie Arrowsmith

Green Valley High School
Class of 2014

Life has been a spectacular adventure for Green Valley High School Student Body President Sophie Arrowsmith. Hailing from across the Atlantic, Sophie’s journey has taken her from Manchester, England (she’s a Man City fan for you football fanatics out there) to the desert of Las Vegas, where she’s now putting her energetic spirit, passion for success and dynamic leadership skills to the test. She sees the future of her school as one of unity, progress and excellence, and she’s got the talent and resolve to help them get there. With her forward thinking vision dead set on the promise of tomorrow, Sophie Arrowsmith stands – A Step Above.

Goals & Aspirations: “My ambition is to be a successful Student Body President this year and make a difference and inspire other students and encourage as much spirit as possible within the Gator family. I want to ensure that all students feel welcome and valued and are inspired by the true spirit at Green Valley. I would also like to graduate with an advanced honors diploma and present a memorable speech at graduation for the Class of 2014.”

Accomplishments Most Proud Of: “My main accomplishment is the fact that I have moved from a different country, started a new life and have achieved success in becoming Student Body President. My sister Charlotte encouraged me to join Student Council and become involved in the day to day life of school.”

Sophie is Stronger and Wiser Because: “Four years ago, my family relocated to America for my father’s job. I left behind family and friends, hobbies, interests and membership of several organizations. I had to become integrated into the last year of middle school where everyone was well established and start my learning experience in a completely different education system. I applied to join Student Council as a freshman. This was my opportunity to make firm friendships and become involved in running this intrinsic aspect of school life. I could never have believed that four years later I would have the honor of being Student Body President of GVHS.”
