Welcome to the seventh “spotlight” blog post featuring one of the student leaders of SEA & KDP at Governors State University!
This week, our spotlight leader is:
SEA PR & Activities and KDP Activities
Keelin Crotty is a 21 year old student in the Elementary Education program with a middle school endorsement in Math at Governors State University. She aspires to teach 1st, 2nd, or 3rd grade when she graduates with her bachelors degree.
Her fondest memory at GSU is joining Student Education Association (SEA), meeting other members, and officially joining the leadership team. Keelin would consider buying her new car at the age of 20 and getting a 4.0 GPA while taking 24 credit hours to be her biggest accomplishment thus far.
In her free time, Keelin loves to make crafts, scrapbook, workout, run, and spend time outside in the sun. She enjoys several outdoor activities including swimming, hiking, and tanning. She would highly recommend that people hike in the Grand Canyon at least once in their lifetime. She believes it to be the most beautiful sight she’s ever seen! In the near future, Keelin desperately wants to go sky diving, preferably sometime before her 22nd birthday!
While at home, Keelin enjoys watching her favorite TV-show It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Her favorite movie would have to be Horrible Bosses. Some of her favorite foods are double baked potatoes, steak, and steamed broccoli. She loves the smell of a new box of crayons and tea tree oil.
If Keelin had to choose something she couldn’t live without, it would have to be her dog and family. In fact, the person she looks up to the most in her life is her mom. Her mother has done so much for her and her brothers. Keelin admires how absolutely positive and kind her mother is. A movie title that best describes Keelin’s life would be Trolls because she strives to be as happy and positive as Poppy, the troll. She tries to live by one of her favorite quotes, “She is clothed with strength and dignity and she laughs without fear of the future” – Proverbs 31:25-28.
Currently, Keelin is working as a nanny on days that she’s not attending classes at Governors State University. If she was ever given the chance to pursue a job in an office answering phone calls all day, Keelin probably wouldn’t last very long. She hates sitting still! She would rather have a job that involves movement and in-person communication.
In the next few months, Keelin is looking forward to going on several of her planned trips to visit friends and work with the students at her lab II clinical experience site. In the next 10 years, Keelin is looking forward to graduating, getting married, traveling, and having kids. She hopes she’ll be remembered for being positive, making people laugh, and for being a happy and friendly person.
If you have any questions to ask Keelin or would simply like to share your thoughts, please use the comment section below. Thank you!
