Katey Smith | For the Daily Journal Skylar Harwood, 20, believes self-reliance is the key to achieving her goals and dreams.


When it comes to working hard for what you want in life and being independent, Rockingham’s Sklyar Harwood is a prime example.

Harwood, 20, is a graduate of Richmond Senior High School. Since her graduation in 2015, she has become an assistant manager at Sonic Drive-In, while working to obtain an associate in arts degree from Richmond Community College.

WHAT MOTIVATES HER

“The satisfaction of working hard,” she said. “It’s gratifying to know how much I’m capable of accomplishing.”

PROUDEST MOMENT

“Getting promoted to assistant manager at such a young age. It’s rewarding to know that someone sees the progress in me and my potential.”

BIGGEST INFLUENCE

“My mother, Shannon Harwood,” she said. “She’s very independent and taught me how to never depend on anyone for the things I want in life.”

HOW SHE UNWINDS

“Hanging out with my friends at the racetrack.”

GOALS FOR THE FUTURE

“I want to go back to school and get a degree,” she said. “My goal is to have my dream house on a lake and not rely on someone other than myself to achieve that.”
