Hannah’s Highlights

By: Maddie Frimmer

Hannah Lam is a junior at Waynesboro High School. Hannah has always had a special connection with her mother. Ever since Hannah’s father passed away, her mother has always stayed strong for Hannah and her family. After Hannah lost her father, she always felt like her “Safe Place” was school.  Hannah enjoys all subjects but most of all she loves to write.“I love to write about things that will offer new perspectives and be persuasive to others,” Hannah expressed. She has always been inspired by different writers and journalists such as, Sara Shepard and Langston Hughes. When she was younger, Hannah wanted to pursue a job in the medical field, but after she took her first journalism class Hannah decided that she wanted to become a journalist.  Hannah’s first years of high school did not go as smoothly as she would’ve hoped. Hannah said, “ It was not at all what I thought it was going to be, it’s a lot harder to stay focused and on task.” Hannah decided starting her junior year that her goal for the rest of high school was to get as many class credits as she could in order to graduate with an advanced diploma. Beginning high school was especially hard for Hannah because one of her closest friends named, Jacky, moved back to her home in Germany and her other friend named, Amber, moved too. “I was scared about this year because I worried that I wouldn’t be able to find friends like them again but I am excited to meet new people,” she explained. Through all of these tough times, Hannah’s older sister has been the one that has stood by her and been there to listen to her when nobody else could.  The sisterly bond that Hannah and her sister have is unbreakable because they’ve gone through the same situations together as a family and have grown to be so close in friendship and sisterhood.
