As a teenager, getting a license and no longer having to rely on your parents for rides to friends’ houses and the mall, is an exciting and memorable experience.  Soon following this experience, young adults get their first cars, which they can decorate and personalize to suit their own tastes.

Personalized license plates give teenagers the opportunity to express themselves by allowing them to choose a word or phrase within a 7 character limit that represents who they are. The possibilities are endless and each plate is different. Students at Prince George High School are no exception. The student parking lot offers several examples of personalized plates.

Junior Haleigh Edwards explained why her license plate is important to her.

“I wanted a personalized license plate that meant something to me and not a bunch of random letters and numbers,” Edwards said.

Edwards’ license plate has the phrase Hales5 on it because it is a nickname that one of her friends gave her.

Senior Kelly Harvey also has a personalized license plate.

“I have a specialty license plate with heart on it followed by ‘dancee,’” Harvey said, “It means that I love dance.”

Personalized license plates can be used to express almost anything that has meaning to the driver or is important to him or her.

Seniors Miranda Mullen and Haley Ramsey are two other students that also have personalized license plates.

“My license plate says HRAMZ with a butterfly. My dad had RAMZ8t8 in high school and I wanted to bring that back,” Ramsey said. “I think it’s a cool way to combine my first initial and my last name.”

Mullen also incorporated her name into her plate.

“My license plate says RRANDA, [which is] my nickname,” Mullen said.

Junior Jordan Nase has also found a way to express himself with his license plate.

“My license plate says Nasety5,” said Nase, “It means that instead of being ‘nasty,’ I’m Nasety.”

Students throughout the county are using their cars to represent their individuality.
