Maddox said she aims to be known for being a Christ-follower and trustworthy friend, as well as someone people can count on who will be remembered for having a good heart. 

Maddox said she looks up to her mom because she works hard and is an amazing role model. 

“She puts others above herself and regardless of how she is treated, she is always going to be like Jesus,” Maddox said about her mom.  

In the future, Maddox wants to go to Texas A&M University to major in Education and get her masters in special education to be a specialist for children with special needs. Her favorite quote is a Bible verse from Matthew 5: 13-16: “You are the salt of the earth and light of the world.” 

I think she truly gets that it is cool to be kind.”
