“I worked at the Humane Society for a while. You [would] go into the dog section of the Humane Society and you would get to give them treats and give them walks, let them play with you, [and] let them cuddle you for an hour at a time. I did it freshman and sophomore year. [When] I was in 6th grade...

“[Happiest moment of the school year?] Probably, at the end of ‘Into the Woods,’ on the last night, the last number on stage, I was crying on stage. It wasn’t bad crying. It was happy crying— almost a rush of relief. Relief that just everything was okay and that everything was going to be okay...

 “I was in a Pacman game, and I don’t even know how I got there. I was being chased by Pacman, and I was super freaked out. The game transitioned over to a Sonic Hedgehog game for some reason. I was just like, okay.”

“It involves cars. I think I had a dream for years that my college boyfriend, who broke up with me in a sad, sad way, was in a car. I don’t know, it was just always leaving, and I could never get back. Even like ten years later there’d be that car leaving in a dream, and I’d be like, ‘I don’t...

"I lived in Germany my freshman year. It was good and bad. I went to a really privileged school where I was really isolated. It was in a very wealthy part of Berlin, and I remember in German class one day we learned about all the underprivileged impoverished parts of the city, and that really opened my...

"So usually I’ll just be hanging out, or walking to school and some idea for a drawing will drop into my mind, and I’ll be like, oh that might look cool. I’ll take a few days to sort of develop that idea and then I start working on it; I do the base sketch, and then I’ll start coloring over that...

Recently I’ve been having morning practices for Pioneer soccer at 5:45 in the morning and I still have club [soccer] on some days after school. Last weekend I had a showcase for colleges, so college recruits can come and watch your team play or just you play, to see if they want you to come play f...

“A large impact on my life? I think my grandmother. She’s made me want to be a doctor, because she was a pediatrician in the 60s in Russia, where it was very difficult to be a pediatrician, especially if you were a woman in Soviet times. I do not see her a lot. I see her every summer for a few week...

“I was on my Outward Bound trip — a three-week sea kayaking and mountaineering trip in Washington. Outward Bound is a challenge-based outdoor expedition organization. It was this very difficult adventure for three weeks without my phone, without talking to any of my friends, and with seven other...

“One of the most important people to me is my friend who I’ve known since I was very young named Livy. She’s always been there for me and she recently had to move to London. We’ve still kept in touch almost every single day. It’s really shown me that if I want to keep in touch with somebody,...

“Playing music definitely [stops time]. Whenever I [play], even if I’m tired or sad or anything — I’m okay doing that all the time. [I started playing] guitar in fifth grade. I just thought it was really cool. I was inspired by Back to The Future. There was a guy and he was playing Chuck Berry...

“Creative, annoying, weird, strong, gay. I just feel like those words sum me up because I’m not much more than that. I like painting, I write, I sketch a lot, I used to work with acrylics a lot, that’s my favorite medium to use. I got interested in art when I was like six because my sister was...
