Meet Megan North!
Having attended The Potter’s School for four years , Megan has taken a variety of classes as well as contributed to clay back when it was still The Cracked Pot. Among her favorite classes have been French with Madame Starosiak, especially the literature course, and Creative Writing with Ms. Gaines. The classes turned into little families, and they are some of the best people she could have hoped to spend high school with. Outside of the classroom, the almost eighteen year-old can be found writing, drawing, playing ukulele, or just goofing around online (i.e. exchanging horrible puns and obscure jokes with her brother and friends). Though she has almost passed into adulthood, Megan is not one to let age stop her from enjoying things like cartoons or cosplay – basically a fancy word for dress-up, although maybe some of that is just her INFP coming through. She has lived in Peru for almost six years as a missionary kid, so in addition to the French she has learned with TPS, she speaks Spanish. However, her plans for the future involve neither of the languages she has learned; instead, she plans to go to a Bible institute in Germany for six months. The school is in English, though, so at least one language will come in handy. Past those plans, the future is unclear. Psychology, writing, and ministry are all careers that interest Megan, but only God knows what the future has in store. So, from les Trois Mousquetaires of French class to the Writers of the Round Table from Creative Writing, Megan has thoroughly enjoyed her high school classes and classmates, and never once procrastinated until the last minute, resulting in disastrous sleep schedules. She promises.
Favorite Bible verse:
Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity. 1 Timothy 4:12 This is one of my favorite verses because it has encouraged me to be the best example of Christ I can be and to do what I feel to do despite my age.
Advice to the younglings of TPS:
Be open with your classmates and don’t be afraid to participate in your classes. Everyone here is quite kind once you get to know them.TPS
