I'm sure you’ve heard my last name before, due to my DNA having relation to the famous Jaxson Hill. Yes I know, cue jaw drop. However, he and I are nowhere near alike. Except for that, I’m smart too (I’d like to say). I am a 300% extrovert, and I am always down to party or laugh until I come close to peeing my pants. I have a small Tik Tok obsession and can be found gulping down some ice cream, despite the fact that I’m slightly lactose intolerant. I run track, have a runny nose during allergy season, and enjoy running to the kitchen for some killer Kraft Mac and Cheese. Just text me for the recipe, or you can look on the back of the box if you’re lazy. This is my first year on the newspaper and yearbook staff, and I’m excited to carry on the legacy of the Hills!’
