Senior Spotlight: Daniela Carrillo


Here at East Hall High School, we love to acknowledge our students that are doing very big things both in and outside of the school. Senior Daniela Carrillo is one of our exemplary students that we would like to recognize for making a positive impact in our school and community. 

Daniela has been very active in her four years while attending East Hall. She is associated with Student Council (1, 2, 3, 4), HOSA (1, 2, 3, 4), HoPe (1, 2, 3, 4),  and FBLA (4). Daniela has also been an East Hall Varsity Spirit cheerleader and Varsity Golf Player since her Freshman year. Being involved is something very important to her. She loves being a part of her community in any way possible. 

“Being part of some sort of team is important because it not only opens the door to new opportunities, but allows friendships to flourish.”  

Not only is Daniela busy in school, she has many commitments outside as well. You can find Daniela working part time at her family’s restaurant, Carrillo El Güero located in Gainesville.  She is an intern at Sisu Integrated Early Learning with East Hall’s Honors Mentorship Program. Daniela is a network marketer and owner of The Key to Missions. During the summer, she works at Gainesville Academy as an assistant teacher. 

“I love my tiny humans. Younger children, especially two year olds bring so much joy into my life. I am able to work with them and truly be myself, they are friends who I get to help, discipline, love on, and play with.” 

Even though Daniela has a busy schedule, she still makes time for herself and the community. During her free time, Daniela enjoys reading, working out, playing piano, and attending Grace Episcopal Church. She actively volunteers at local elementary schools and nursing homes in hope to help others. Also, her church organizes a food bank that she helps with. 

Miss. Daniela has some big plans for her future. Her love for Christ and desire to help people has led her to want to study Theology out of state. She then plans to become a missionary and run her mission business. With all of this being said, Daniela is a very well rounded lady that has achieved great accomplishments in her lifetime. East Hall is very proud of her and we cannot wait to see what her future holds.
