What are you interested in?

4th question of the Be You Collection

 

Kaylei McGarrett: I love crafting. I think finding a creative outlet to express my grief, pain, and confusion is a therapeutic tool that I have learned to pass on to help ill children and their families who may be experiencing some of the same emotions.

Chloey Rudy: My favorite hobby is reading. Although it sounds boring, reading in my favorite tree is a place where I can escape to being just a regular thirteen-year-old girl.

Matthew Moon: I’m interested in watching sports. I like to watch the Yankees!

Ella Moon: I am extremely interested in the Yankees and their team. I also really like to write stories when I’m bored. I also love to follow women’s college basketball because they set such a strong example.

Jan Ballbé: I enjoy physical education and mathematics.

Grey Chapin: I have recently been very interested in filmmaking. A few years ago, I started taking my go pro on trips and putting clips together to make a video. I really enjoyed this and love to look back at the memories. A few weeks ago, I put together a video for the two year anniversary of my sister’s passing. It included a letter written to her and photos of us from several years ago. The process of finding photos of us together and putting them to music is very helpful in my grieving process.

Nic Bouzakis: Harry Potter is probably one of my favorite book series
