Kaelyn Hughes

A left-brain person who is also very creative and musical.

"If I can choose who I am in the moment, then I can choose to come in as my left brain personality and all of the skill sets that goes with that."

Although I use both the left and right sides of my brain depending on the thought process necessary, I am most comfortable while using the left side of my brain. That means that I like more structure, control, clarity, focus, direction, responsibility, organization, planning, mathematical and analytical skills, listening skills, and rational and logical thinking. However, sometimes I need more spontaneity, expression, nurturing, social and interpersonal activity, imagination and creativity, artistry, and holistic, abstract, and conceptual thinking.

My Personality Type

#1 Green

I have a green personality type. That means that I am curious, intellectual, rational, and I love learning. My communication style is very to the point. I am logical, communicate facts, and I think before I speak. It frustrates me when there is small talk and failure, and when I am wrong publicly.

Decision Making

Analytical Style

When making decisions, I tend to follow the Analytical Style. People with that decision making style are intellectual, want control, have an impersonal social orientation, complete tasks by preparing detailed plans, and want to be able to predict outcomes. Others sometimes see my decision making as over-controlling, impersonal, too careful, abstract, or mathematical, or sometimes too slow. The best organizational fit for my type of decision making is one in which planning or solving problems is important, such as science or engineering.

High School Timeline

Senior Year or 12th Grade

1st Semester


  • Fight senioritis- the struggle to get lazy is real, but your grades still matter.
  • Take the SAT or ACT again if you're unhappy with your first score.
  • Get letters of recommendation in the first weeks of school from teachers, advisers, or employers who know you and your work well (no family or friends), and give each recommender a copy or your resume, examples of your work, and a list of schools you need letters for, and stamped examples.
  • Apply to your top three to five schools.
  • Make sure your applications contain everything they need, proofread everything (twice), send in a neat application, make copies of everything you send in the mail, and keep your admission fee receipt or check number just in case.
  • Create a checklist of places you've applied and application deadlines.

2nd Semester

  • Pick a school that you got into, and tell them of your decision to attend. Tell all your other schools that you won't be attending, and send transcripts of the first semester of your senior year if your college requires it.
  • Fill out the FAFSA as close to Jan. 1 as you can to qualify for government grants and loans.
  • Make sure all the paperwork required by the university has been filled out and sent on time, and that you have paid all your fees.
  • Begin researching Greek rush requirements at your college if you are interested.
  • Check on housing- many schools begin housing assignments in May.
  • Graduate!
  • Enjoy your summer- once college starts, everything changes forever.
