Grace Hannon
Names of parents: Maria and Robert Hannon
Interests: My main interests are writing, reading, art and sports. I like to write at school and in my spare time. During the latter, I enjoy creating stories and trying to complete my own full novels. Fantasy and fiction genres are my favorites to write and read. Some of my favorite series to read include The Twisted Tale by Liz Braswell and The Books of Bayern by Shannon Hale. When it comes to art, I love watercolor painting, hand lettering, and making greeting cards using both techniques. I also like swimming, cycling and ice skating.
Community service: The pandemic has prevented me from joining these services recently, but I hope to do so in the near future.
Educational Goals: Throughout high school, I hope to maintain high grades, participate in a running start program or the International Baccalaureate program, and participate in extracurricular clubs/activities. Then I want to get into a community college or a four-year university.
Career Goals: I hope to become a graphic designer and/or published author.
