The Leopard

Ethan Herteux, Writer

My name is Ethan Herteux. I am 16 years old, and I was born on September 2, 2005, in Salt Lake City, Utah. I am a sophomore and will graduate in 2024. I have lived in Utah my whole life and do hopefully plan to travel to other states or living in another state someday. I have visited Arizona, Idaho, Minnesota, and a few other states but I haven’t traveled outside the country.

 I enjoy playing sports, hanging out with friends, and playing video games. I have played soccer for my whole life and plan to try a new sport at east. I switched to East High last year and before that I attended Highland High for freshman year. 

My dad's name is Travis, and he has lived in many places like Germany, Massachusetts, and Park City Utah. He is an electrician. My mom works in an eye doctor's office and has lived in California and Washington. I have no siblings, but I do have a few cousins. 2 of which have graduated high school and one is in middle school. 

Something that I don’t like spending my free time doing is reading. I just can’t sit still and read a book for hours as I will get bored and don’t enjoy it very much. I would rather spend my time with my friends in some way or another. One thing I think I do well better than others is being able to read emotions. I read body language and facial expressions very well.

 I think someone I look up to are my parents because they are role models in my life. They have taught me everything and I have a very good relationship with them. I think something I'm bad at is talking about myself as I run out of things to list, and I don’t really have anything interesting to say. 

I think if I had to make plans for after high school I would choose to go to college and become a sports journalist but so far I don’t think I have a path in mind. My favorite subject in school is Physics because it doesn’t seem like a very hard science, and I do not think it requires that much math. I had a challenging freshman year due to schooling from home and I think that it did make my learning much harder. The first year was not all that much of a breeze, and I hope that one day I can go back to school in a normal way. 

My favorite sport is soccer and I played it for many years before I quit as the pandemic stops sports from continuing. My favorite soccer team is Bayern Munchen and sadly I am a fan of Arsenal even though they are terrible this year. Nobody likes them so I'm the only one. I do hope to play a new sport and I want to try new things eventually. Basketball, tennis and volleyball all sound cool, I don’t think I could play all of them. Some of them I don’t have the physical requirements to play them. This year I hope to enjoy high school and get most of the high school experience before it ends.
