Senior Spotlight: Ashly Trabilcy

by Amita Chauhan, Co-Editor-in-Chief

1. When and where were you born? Describe the kind of child you were.

I was born on July 16th, 1996 in Glendale, CA. I was definitely one of those typical girly girls who loved frilly dresses and Barbies and I am surely not ashamed (haha). I was a pretty good kid who stayed within the lines and wasn’t super adventurous.

2. Do you have any siblings?

Yes! One sister, Carly, who’s going to be a freshman next year! It’s a bummer I couldn’t experience at a least a year here with her, but I know she’ll do great.

3. What was your favorite year of high school? Why?

Definitely freshman year because that was when I first let a majority of my friends who I would come to love very much. Also, because I was blessed with the opportunity to go on our Choir trip to Disney World and that was one of the best experiences I’ve had so far in life.

4. What is one of your favorite memories of high school?

Ooh…that’s a toughy. I’d have to say  meeting my little baby freshman from choir this year, because they’ve been nothing but gems. And when we go to sing “Eve.”

5. What are some of your extracurriculars and accomplishments?

I am currently Captain of Comedy Sportz and I love it so much! My team is great and full of fun, amazing people. I’d say my biggest accomplishment is a little less educational and more personal. I’ve definitely learned to love who I am and have become comfortable with making a few crazier decisions than normal (which is quite different from my childhood self haha). But I’m extremely glad that I’ve been able to learn & grow throughout high school & accomplish what I never thought possible.

6. How have you changed from freshman year to senior year? Were there any defining moments of your high school career?

Wow. 4 years can really change a person in innumerable ways. I’ve definitely gotten crazier. hands down. I love just being silly and carefree, because honestly; why worry? We’ve got a lifetime ahead of us to have the worries of life get to us, so why start nowAshly 3?

My most defining moment was without a doubt when I met a girl named Arianna McMonagle. She will forever hold a special place in my heart; she taught me that no matter what people say or how life treats you, to always be yourself, and love that. She was such an amiable and fearless person, and through her I realized I could be the same way and ever since then, that’s what I strive to do.

7. What is your Senior Quote?

I actually put a bible verse from  Isaiah 40:8 that says “The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God endures forever.” My relationship with Jesus Christ is one of the most important things in my life and I hold dear to it. I really don’t know what I would do without the lovely advice from the Bible or the love of my wonderful Saviour.

8. Where are you going in the fall? What do you plan on majoring in?

I’m actually attending a Bible College in York, England, which I am very excited about! I can’t wait to delve into another culture and learn more about the theology behind the Bible. I’m going to be majoring in Theology.

9. What do you want to be when you grow up?

Well, I want to be many things honestly. I’d love to be a teacher, worship leader, mother and many more. But if I had to choose I would have to say worship leader because I love music with the entirety of my heart and it’s amazing being able to incorporate that with  other things I love in life.

10. Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

I see myself in a new place, surrounded by loving people and maybe with a family who I cherish. But who knows where the wind will take me, so long as I can look back and say I had no regrets.
