Natalie Vasquez is a 15-year-old sophomore at Aucilla Christian Academy. She is active in sports, playing both at school and at home. In the fall she is a guard on the basketball team and in spring she plays softball as a centerfielder or leftfielder. When it comes to academics, Algebra II is her favorite subject “so far.”
Natalie says she loves going to Aucilla because it’s a small enough school where everybody knows each other and she is free to be a Christian. “You don’t have to be afraid to talk about and share your religion with anybody.” She is active in FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes). The group is made up of both boys and girls and conducts a Bible study that is student-led, and discusses ways students can serve their community.
When asked what hobbies she enjoys outside of school, Natalie replied, “Mostly homework because we have a lot of it.” She also said she works a lot on improving her sports while at home.
After Natalie graduates she wants to be a veterinarian, but first plans to attend a two or four-year community college. Her first choice for a University is the University of Florida in Gainesville, second is Florida State University in Tallahassee and her third choice is University of Central Florida in Orlando.
