Maya Bierhoff, Staff Writer

Hey! My name is Maya and this is my second year in the journalism program. I joined last year in high hopes of a new adventure, and have since then fallen in love with the rewarding feeling that writing for The Leaf gives me. 

One thing that really sums me up is a bookworm. A Taylor Swift, coffee, and Clairo loving bookworm. Some of my favorite books include the Harry Potter series, Lord of the Rings, Pride and Prejudice, Six of Crows, and the Priory of the Orange Tree (which I am currently reading). Books are a wonderful escape from reality that has kept me entertained since 1st grade. My current feat is reading the first two Twilight books in one day because they really interested me. I never finished the series, however, solely because I did not like Jacob’s character. Whoops.

I have always considered myself a creative person and anything about art or crafts I will do. My passions for music and art tend to mix, and you’ll see many drawings of artsy song lyrics in bright colors around my room. I also like to paint anything bold and cheery, although most times the paintings end up clashing with each other so my collection looks like a brash explosion. I will admit, as much as I love painting and art I still have much to improve on. However, that is fine by me because I have always liked to do things that make me happy, no matter my actual talent at it. Another crafty passion I have, I picked up during quarantine, and that is knitting. I have had a “passion for fashion” since the 4th grade, so making wearable items is so cool! I will make bags and shirts and all kinds of things that now lie around my room and clutter up the house, and it is really enjoyable.

My future might not be musical or artsy, however, because as much I love those passions they could never realistically be a career for me. Two subjects that interest me at the moment are Psychology and English. Although right now I cannot see myself working at a desk from 9-5 every day, these subjects seem as if they would make very fun jobs. 

Some fun facts about me include: I am scared of heights, I am scared of bridges over water, and I  do not like most elevators. They all kind of tie in together with my fear of falling and anywhere up high, so a heads up to any new friend is to leave me behind when they climb Mount Everest. If you are still reading, thanks.
