Red Cross Pharmacy And I think kids now-a-days are trying to act too much like adults when they're not even there yet," she said. Jackie said it's all about what you set your mind to. "Keep an open mind about everything because once you get narrow- minded, that's when arguments start or you aren't able to fit in." Jessy and Jackie admit to having to overcome several of their own weaknesses to build their strengths. Jessy said time management didn't always come easy to her. "Since it's my senior year and I need to get ready for college, I've actually started planning out everything and been doing everything at the right time," she said. Improving her time management skills helped Jessy get things done on schedule, amidst the chaos of sports and school work. Jackie said her main weakness is being too nice to people and allowing them to take advantage of her kindness. To fight for what she wants, Jackie said she tunes in to her inner strengths. "I'm intelligent and I'm ambitious and whenever I want something I will get it - in a good way, of course," she said. Though they've enjoyed high school, both girls are awaiting what their future holds after graduation. Track and math are two of Jackie's passions and she plans to pursue both in college. "I would like to go to the University of Central Missouri and hopefully run track there, majoring in math education," she said. Jessy also hopes to carry her athletic ability into her college years. "After high school, I'm going to Wentworth Military Academy to play volleyball," she said. After college, Jessy wants to become a physical education teacher. Jessy and Jackie Leavell are not only competitive in the classroom but on the field and on the court.
