Senior Dryden Shroeder “I think one of the best things I have ever done was going to my first baseball game to watch the Cubs play on Wrigley Field.

“I’ve been playing football for over four years. It’s a grind for sure, but keeping yourself humble and working every day with the rest of your teammates is really something that I am proud of and the rest of the team is proud of. It’s built me up as a person, and I use it to humble myself and lo...

Junior Alexis Custer-Topai “I usually start wearing Halloween socks in July, just to make sure I’m in the spirit and hype myself up. I really like fall since Halloween is my favorite holiday and that’s what I normally associate it with. I also think of toilet papering people’s houses since it...

“I used to be really involved in DECA, I still I am, but I used to be in love with DECA, DECA was like my life and everything I did and I was pretty good at it but sometimes you put in a lot of work for something and you don’t get that recognition that you want, it really makes you question how ...

“I realized that dreams do come true, I don’t know, because this whole being a senior thing, and I’m headed off to college in a few months and I’ve been waiting for all my college acceptances and rejections and everything, and after I got accepted by my top school, I was like ‘Oh! Okay, so d...

“(Gender nonconformity) is a topic that frequently comes up during discussion. I think a lot of that is just teenagers who are generally trying to figure out their place, and that can be even more challenging for someone who doesn’t fit the ‘norm.’ I think it’s natural for everyone to be unsur...

I like photography, so pairing fashion and photography together is cool. And sometimes, if I see a really out-there piece at Goodwill or something, I’ll pair that with a regular pair of jeans if it’s for a shoot. But I’ll never do that for regular purposes.

"Just over the summer, I started looking at fashion related sites. I did a bit more research and I realized that I didn’t dress that well.
