ImageKimberly Paulsen is this week’s featured student.  Kimberly became a Top Ten Winner in our spring 2012 poetry contest with her poem “Love’s Journey.”  You can view her poem here.

Kimberly is a junior at Viewmont High School in Utah.  She comes from a loving family of ten and has always been inspired by their examples.  We asked Kimberly to tell us what helped to inspire her winning poem.  She explained:

“Oddly enough, I enjoy school and adore coming to understand the world around me: I find investigating the human condition irresistible. My poem captures the significance of relationships and experiences in life that are often underestimated or under appreciated. By observing my grandparents and their care for each other for more than five decades, I have discovered the simple elegance of love’s journey. Love in any stage of life is a stunning and beautiful experience. I hope to come to truly know the world around me and the extraordinary people on it. I will continue to explore and look forward to serving others: Whether through art, science, or just being an uplifting part of my community.”
