Teen Spotlights

Teen Spotlight: Annie Bach

stats: 18, Senior at Montgomery Catholic

notable: National Honor Society Treasurer State Science Olympiad Team Member Top Art Student for 2017-2018

quotable: “My personal life motto is: If you live for today, you won’t have to worry about tomorrow. I believe it’s so important to live as best as I can without spending my life worrying about the future because I know that God has my life all figured out.”

her story: Although she’s still in high school, Annie has already discovered her passion in life: art. She shared, “My family is full of artists, especially on my dad’s side, so I always saw and was inspired by their art growing up. Honestly, though, what truly made me interested in art was my older sister. She was always a good artist, and I just wanted to be exactly like her.” At Montgomery Catholic, she’s a member of Mu Alpha Theta, the varsity volleyball team, rosary club, and more. Her ultimate goal is for her life to reflect her faith. She explained, “I want to be remembered as someone who did exactly what God wanted me to do. I believe He gives everyone certain gifts, and His dispersing of gifts is not random. I want to use mine in whatever way He has chosen.”

what’s next: “My dream is to be an animator for Disney or Pixar, but I’ll be happy in any job where I get to be creative and make art.”

PG (parental guidance) rating: Annie admitted, “I know it’s cliche, but the best advice I’ve ever received is from my mom. She has always encouraged me to do what I love.” She added, “My family is very hard-working and Catholic, and I am extremely proud of our faith and the values we all share.

parents’ perspective: Rod and Laura shared, “The things we admire most in Annie are her individuality and her spirituality. She is confident enough in herself to do things her own way and not have to follow the crowd. She also has a joy about her that comes from her strong faith. She is fortunate to have already found a great passion in life in her art.”

parent-to-parent: “Hold high standards for your children, and they will rise to them. Giving them responsibilities will give them the self-confidence they need to mature and succeed.”
