Aislyn Echols, Opinion Editor

Senior Aislyn Echols is both ecstatic and terrified about her senior year of high school. Being an experienced opinion editor, she is ready to work with the new staff writers to make amazing stories. With her being in mostly AP and DC classes, her fear of failure drives her through this year. To escape her stressful school life, she likes to unwind with a good book, create a new art project or watch mind-rotting YouTube videos. Aislyn can most likely be found watching either the “Harry Potter” or “Hunger Games” series for the millionth time alone in her room with her four dogs. She enjoys alone time but cherishes time with people who share her interests and ideas.
