Kimberly Lopez, Reporter
Hi, I'm a senior here at Lakes some of my favorite things to do is writing which is one of the reasons I joined journalism class. I also like to read, paint, playing tennis, to do pottery which I find fun and sometimes challenging to do, I think pottery is something everyone should try at least once, one of my recent hobbies has been building Legos I have 6 of the botanical collection so far. But I hope to write as much as I can during the school year.
