Adeline Guidry is doing big things as an 11-year-old, and she has even bigger dreams for the future. She was a foster child until she was adopted in third grade. Now, she’s a fifth-grade student at Westdale Heights Academic Magnet, and she was a finalist for Student of the Year. Adeline loves animals and everything to do with school, and she might even become President of the United States one day.
Competing for Student of the Year requires a high GPA (Adeline has a 4.0) and plenty of extracurricular activities, essays, and interviews. In fact, Adeline had to compete against some of her best friends to make it to the state finals, but those friends agreed that she is a natural-born leader who deserves to win the Student of the Year award.
Adeline dreams of attending LSU Veterinary School and starting her own business with her little sister, Katie Beth, called the Guidry Girls Veterinary Clinic. This clinic will include a no-kill animal shelter and a pet store, and it will be affordable for all pet owners. Then,
she plans to run for President of the United States.
Adeline wants everyone to know that you can go far in life even if you’ve had a rough start. “You could come from a pretty bad place like me, but you can do what you want in life as long as you really try to turn that around and make good things happen,” she shares.
Adeline describes herself as a fun and outgoing leader, and she’s truly one amazing kid.
