Hi! I'm Helen, and I am an eighth grader entering ninth grade next year. I am going to be going to Salem High School (GO ROCKS!), and I was in TAG (The Talented and Gifted Program). I love music (both playing it and listening to it), and I play the clarinet and piano. Some of my hobbies are drawing, skating, and running, and I was on the track team last year. I am quiet at times, and my strongest subject would probably be math. My favorite author is John Steinbeck (who wrote "Of Mice and Men," "The Pearl," and "The Grapes of Wrath"). I like writing descriptions rather than essays, but I would like to improve my vocabulary.
