Athlete. Musician. Singer. Professional boot shopper. Ha ha! Those first three things are true about 2014 Alexander High School Spokesmodel & graduate Allie Ochoa, and the fourth might as well be true. Allie has more boots than we could count, and they are all cute! We think the only time she took her boots off all year was when she wore her volleyball shoes at practices and games! When she got time away from the net, Allie perfected her incredible musical talent: in the past, she’s even made it into multiple rounds of American Idol, just before getting the chance to perform for the “real” judges. 🙂 Allie is clearly very comfortable performing, and she was extremely natural in front of the camera too! After an amazing model shoot, she grabbed her boots and guitar for her official senior shoot in the fall, where she serenaded us at sunset! That evening could not have ended more perfectly. Beautiful sky, beautiful singing voice, beautiful person . . . it was a wonderful shoot with a wonderful model! Allie, thank you for an awesome year- we are so thankful that we got to have you as a spokesmodel!
Want to get to know Allie a little better? Read below her photos to find out more about her favorite senior year memories, plans for next year, and advice for the class of 2015!
Favorite senior year memory:
My favorite senior year memory would have to be when I went to Cozumel with my two best friends, Morgan and Stephanie. Any time with them was a great memory.
Plans for next year:
My plans for next year consist of pursuing a major in music at Andrew College and then transferring to another college and getting my music therapist license.
Favorite song, quote, or verse this year:
My favorite Bible verse is Proverbs 3:5: “Trust in The Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.” I love it because it reminds me that my plans aren’t always the plans God has for me and I need to trust Him fully, even when I don’t quite understand it yet.
What you hope your classmates will remember most about you:
What I hope my classmates will remember most about me is how compassionate I am and how friendly I am towards everybody. I hope they remember little silly things I say and that I couldn’t go a minute without singing.
Advice for the class of 2015:
My advice for the class of 2015 would be to take as many pictures as you can to capture as many memories possible, and to hang out with your friends. This is the year that counts. Have fun and leave high school with no regrets. But…you know…study a little, too. As much as I complained about school and the work and some of the people that were in my class, I will miss it and some of my greatest lifetime memories will be with AHS and the class of 2014.
How do you want to help change the world?
I want to help change the world by making more beautiful music. I want to bring back meaningful music and for it to have an impact on those around me. I want to help people through their problems and situations with the beauty of music.
