The Leopard

Paulina Vazquez, Opinion Editor

I was born on May 25th, 2004 and will be turning 17 this year. I am currently a Junior and this is my second year of journalism at East High School. I was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. I’m part of a big family; I'm the oldest sister of four girls.


I’ve struggled a lot this past year with a case of Tourette’s Syndrome but I haven’t let it completely tear me down. I’m slowly getting back into the hang of things and adjusting to the changes this diagnosis has brought to my life.


 However, this illness doesn’t define me. I’m a compassionate animal lover. I love spending time playing games like Minecraft and Animal Crossing. My mom is my best friend. I’m in a healthy and happy relationship. I put a lot of time into building my relationships with my sisters and guiding them so they avoid the mistakes I've made. I’m invested into learning about many topics, and I'm a huge true-crime junky. I’m trying out new hobbies, and I’m thinking of what my future will bring. 


Thinking of my future has always and continues to be a frightful thought, but it’s only coming closer every day. I have decided that I will probably not be going to college and pursuing something to do with art instead. I have always dreamed of becoming a tattoo artist, and I hope that’s where my choices will take me.
