ImageOur featured student writer is Alexandra Swetnam, a junior at Whitefield Academy in Louisville, Kentucky.  Alexandra lives on a farm in a small town nearby Louisville.  Besides writing, she enjoys reading and spending time with her family.

Alexandra received national recognition in our national essay contest for Fall 2011 by being selected as a Top Ten Winner in her age category.

Alexandra’s family inspired her to write her essay, “On Beauty.”  Alexandra states, “In everyone else’s eyes, they are just ordinary people, but to me they are a treasure and I love them more than words can express.

I love writing because words have so much power, and it allows me to express my deepest thoughts and emotions beautifully and simply.

I am honored to be recognized as a Top 10 Winner. This essay came straight from my heart, and it is thrilling to know that all the care and love that I put into it is appreciated.

I especially want to thank my wonderful English teacher Mrs. Potter, for inspiring me and encouraging me every day. Thank you!”

Thank you, Alexandra, for sharing the story behind your winning essay.  Good luck in your future endeavors and keep writing!
