Learner Spotlight: The Hemsley Twins
Heather and Hope are eighth grade twins. They are uniquely gifted and share the same passion for music, theater, and serving others. Being homeschooled, they have been given more time to develop their gifts. They have enjoyed being involved in musical theater, and their most recent musical was “Singing in the Rain.” Both girls play the piano, and have enjoyed accompanying vocalists, leading worship, and playing for the elderly. Both girls love any serving opportunities! They have put in several hours with Operation Christmas Child packing shoe boxes this holiday season.
Hope is passionate about art. She has entered her art work yearly in the L.A. County Fair. She has been developing this gift with a variety of art courses, the most recent being a landscape course. Hope sets up her easel in different locations every day. She thrives on the challenge to create a piece that reflects what she is seeing. She desires to one day teach art in order to inspire others to see the beauty around them.
Heather loves to read and write! She always has a story in her head and multiple stories in progress. An idea book called “Writers Block” is where she continuously is writing her thoughts down for future stories. She has a love for language and words. She recently completed NaNoWriMo, a young writer’s program that challenges writers to finish a novel in a month, and then they will print it for you. Heather desires to teach one day, and also be an inspirational writer on the side.
One goal they share is to write and illustrate a book together! Heather and Hope are sisters, best friends, and are enthusiastic about life and all the opportunities that await them!
