Kristina Seavers, 17, a senior at Reagan High School, places a check mark on the city of San Antonio as she makes her way across the map from continent to continent with her 13-year-old brother, mom and dad.
Born in Wichita Falls, Seavers has moved 10 times because her dad is in the Air Force. Aside from a number of stops in the United States, she has lived in Korea, Iceland and England.
Along the way, she gained a love for traveling and hopes to add Canada to her list of countries visited.
“All the cool people are from Canada,” Seavers insisted. “Like Ryan Gosling.”
She also wants to visit Australia and eat fresh coconut in Hawaii.
On her journey from here-to-there, she learned to water ski, and in Korea earned college credit while learning ballet.
Seavers’ hobbies include yoga, attending concerts, listening to music and going to a museum in San Antonio every weekend with her best friend, Victor.
Since her junior year, Seavers has been editor of her high school newspaper, and she hopes to study journalism at the University of Texas at Austin.
Seavers said she attends gay pride events and expects to start a Gay Straight Alliance (GSA) chapter at her high school next year.
She said she loves to “read, write, go on adventures, listen to stories and music and blog.”
