Daniel Boone High School,
David Crockett High School
Hello! My name is Hannah Scheurer. I was born and raised in Johnson City, and East Tennessee has always been my home. During my time at Daniel Boone High School I knew exactly what I did not want to do. It seemed like my options were limited, and it would have been helpful to think outside the box with a NiswongerCARE advisor. After visiting three college campuses, I decided to attend East Tennessee State University in the fall of 2015.
I wish I could say that I “found my place” in college like everyone else, but honestly the first two and a half years were just really hard. I was dealing with a lot of personal issues that took a long time to figure out, so I rushed through school to receive my Bachelor’s degree in December 2018.
For most people, including myself, attending college is truly about finding your identity. Some people identify with a large organization on campus while others keep to themselves just to discover how their passions align with their purpose. Either way, your college experience is going to be what you make of it.
It did not take me long after college to learn that Human Resources was not exactly what I wanted to do. I enjoy developing systems that work for the greater good, and I want to make a difference in the lives of people around me. What matters to me in developing relationships is learning a person’s story and continuing to understand more about them. Every person has such a unique story, and I am so excited to start encouraging students during my second year as a NiswongerCARE Advisor!
Even though I will forever be amazed by the beauty of our Appalachian Mountains, I also enjoy traveling to other areas to learn more about historical places and cultures. In my spare time I am usually reading an inspirational book or watching Netflix next to my cat, Turkey. I love being outside in the summer and doing hot yoga in the winter! I am very involved with the women’s ministry at my church, and I love asking friends to go out to restaurants (since I’m not the best cook).
I’ll leave you with this: learn something every single day. My grandfather always asks me, “What have you learned today?” and I continue to ask myself and others this question often. What you learn about yourself, the world, other people… no one can take that away from you.
