Sarah Wilkins Hometown: Apex, NC School: Virginia Tech Major: Health and Exercise Science Job: Scribe at Forsyth Endocrine Consultants Church: First Presbyterian "I love being active and being outside – my favorite aspects of nature are mountains and clouds. I love traveling and experiencing new places and cultures. I believe that seeing different parts of the world gives such perspective that simply cannot be gained otherwise. Lastly, I feel very passionate about ice cream – it also happens to be my favorite food.

Kate Donahoo Hometown: The Woodlands, TX School: Davidson College Major: History Job: Forsyth Country Day School Church: Hope Church "I love to play music. I studied classical piano for ten years and taught myself to play guitar, which is most of what I play now. I also taught myself to play bass guitar, banjo, ukulele, mandolin, accordion, and percussion at varying levels of proficiency for fun to play around with friends, and I also sing. I fell in love with guitar listening to classic Rock and with percussion listening to soul and early R&B, which have become staples of my driving playlists.
