I had fun this year
I had fun this year. I’m in sixth grade. It was my first year of middle school. Last year, I always wanted to be in a bunch of afterschool clubs, so I’ve been in probably over five clubs this year. There was anime club, maker club, community service – we got to go to a soup kitchen and help them out. I also was in field hockey this year and it was pretty fun.
Have you thought about what kind of career you’d like to have?
Last year we did a career inventory and I was thinking about it. I had a lot of things I always wanted to do, like photography and art, so I decided I was going to be a graphic designer and photographer. And the college that I want to go to is all the way in San Francisco. I believe it is the Academy of Art University. From what I saw, it’s really nice and I hope I can get into it.
Why do you like art?
I like art because, to be honest, it just calms me down – when I draw or anything. I think art is a really nice expression because I want to be a photographer and I have a camera already. I just really like to edit things and create things.
What are your plans for this summer?
Mainly going to Ocean Breeze, Water Country and Busch Gardens – those kinds of things. I like swimming, so I’ll probably go swimming. And I’m going to California for about two weeks later this summer. I have family there. We went for spring break and I wanted to go back. We’re going to Anaheim for Disneyland, San Diego and Los Angeles.
Is there anything else you want people to know about you?
This year I’m a Lancer Leader. I went to Lancer Launch and I thought being a Lancer Leader would be pretty cool – how you get to organize a lot of things, which I love organizing. I get to organize how it’s going to be planned out. I’m part of the team that gets to design everything and we’re making posters. Everybody chose me to draw the T-shirt. So I was put in charge of drawing everything that’s going to be on the T-shirt.
