Fatima Carpenter
Class of 2014

I selected "F@+!M@" as my one word because it's my name: Fatima. It is spelled differently because it describes my personality; I am spontaneous! I chose my name as my one word because there is a sentimental meaning behind it for me. When I was born I had heart-lungs-bypass and there was a small chance for me surviving. So one day my mom went to church and prayed for my survival. She promised to name me after Our Lady of Fatima. After that I gradually started to recover and now I am a living proof of an answered prayer.
