Key to Awesomeness:
"My motto is 'do whatever you want' as in I do things that I want," says this talented public speaker. "I like to do things because they are fun. That’s the reason why I joined the speech and debate team."
Kevin says he likes to take challenging academic courses, which he considers "fun."
In AP English he takes part in "incredibly fascinating and meaningful discussions," he adds, and in his spare time he likes to read.
"Whether it is books or Manga, Japanese comics, I’m always trying to read the coolest books. I also love playing video games. I do these things because they are fun," he says.
He also enjoys writing fiction, which is the main reason he entered the creative writing class at LGHS. "Essentially I do whatever I want to do as long as I find it fun, whether it be running around for no reason, hanging out with friends, or writing an essay."
