“I think my spirit animal is probably a giraffe because they are quiet and always seem to be deep in thought. I spend a lot of time in silence just thinking about everything under the sun. You could definitely label me as an over-thinker. I think they are very wild and unique and those are also qualities that I love about myself.” - Madison Satterfield, 11th-grade “I think my spirit animal is probably a giraffe because they are quiet and always seem to be deep in thought.
