About Me

Hi, my name is Carly Thornton. I am a senior at Cumberland High School. I have many hobbies and skills including playing volleyball, softball, artistic design, writing, and much more. I have played volleyball since the age of 11 for both my school team and a travel team. I plan to continue playing volleyball in college as well as working towards my intended major of law studies/ criminal justice. I am a part of the National Honor Society, Student Council, Spanish Club, and Art Club. I am eager to start CEO and explore the many aspects of the business world and incorporate them into the classroom.

You may be hesitant to share your opinion with others if the topic is divisive or hotly contested. You are usually very supportive of decisions made by others on the team.
  • You are very enthusiastic in working with others. You can at times be too impulsive in making decisions. You express or talk about your emotions openly on the up-side or down-side.

  • You tend to operate somewhat more independently from the established rules and procedures. "The 'right way' to do things is the way I'm doing them right now." You view rules more as guidelines that may need to be bent or modified depending on the situation. Your opinions tend to be quite firm when it comes to breaking with convention to answer the needs of the situation. You could become rigid about your desire to do things differently or more quickly. You are more bottom-line oriented (e.g., "Let's get the job done now").
