"For the most part, it's just a matter of keeping track of everything and it's important to me to be well rounded," said Spears.
Kara said her time best spent, is the time she spends helping others.
"There's people out there that really need our help, so if it brightens someones day, then why not just take the time to do it?," said Kara.
Kara will attend Whitworth University in the fall where she'll pursue a degree in International Relations.
"I think academics is very important," said Spears. "I think it lets you become a better person. It teachers you new things and I love learning."
Kara's motivation is what takes her to the next level.
"My perseverance has proven to me, and to other people, that I can finish things, even if I'm not really good at them," said Kara.
