Charlotte McConathy, Managing Editor

Name: Laila Lindsey

Grade: 9th

Extracurriculars: Band

What I enjoy doing: Drawing, writing, and playing guitar

What makes me unique: I’ve been in braces since I was 8. I was the first in my grade to get them and I still have them. Not super interesting, but it’s all I could think of.

Talents: Anything artistic, like drawing and writing

Future plans: I want to become a music artist and connect with a group of people that need a little more motivation to keep going.

What’s on my TV: Any horror or sci-fi series I can find.

What I drive: I don’t drive yet.

Favorite movies: Scream, Halloween H20, I Know What You Did Last Summer, 10 Things I Hate About You

Favorite music: Twenty One Pilots

Favorite website or social media: I love Pinterest. I’ll spend hours scrolling through it while listening to music.

Superstitions/Phobias: It’s dumb, but I absolutely hate things like fireworks and balloons because of how loud they are.

Worst habit: Telling myself, “Oh, I’ll do it later,” and then not doing it later.

I would love to trade places for a day with: Tyler Joseph. I want to see through the eyes of a person who was at his lowest when he started writing music, and now having a fanbase of millions who relate to his messages.

First job: Never had one.

Favorite meal: Chicken strips and french fries.

Favorite drink: Diet Coke

Talent I would most like to have: I want to as good at songwriting as my favorite artists.

Favorite celebrity: Tyler Joseph (I know I’m mentioning him a lot.)

My hero: Tyler Joseph. He lived through so much anxiety and depression, and now he has a career in which he writes music that let’s people know that it’s worth it to stay alive.

Hobbies or interests: I’m interested in topics such as space, psychology, mythology, and music. I like writing my own music and drawing.
