Hello. I’m Rachel Wang, I’m a freshman and I’m obviously a newcomer. I joined journalism to step out of my comfort zone. I’m here to improve my writing skills while having fun at the same time.

 At school and public places, I’m usually quiet and reserved. I’m an introvert, so don’t expect much talking from me, but I’m hoping that will change. There are times when in public, I would just do random things, or seem sort of extroverted, but that’s usually when I really want to talk to a friend of mine. At home though, that’s a different story. I scream, shout, and even make crappy jokes not even to my friends, but sometimes even random people online. I guess I’m more talkative when the people around me have no idea who I am, or what I look like. But don’t worry, I don’t just sit there and talk to strangers, I only do it when I’m playing games and giving out callouts. When playing with strangers, I usually just say, “Good try”, “Nice one!” and even, “Sorry, that was on me”, vs. when I’m playing with my friends, we’d insult each other about dumb plays we did during a round/game and have a nice laugh about it. I usually play only a few games, those games being: Among Us, Valorant, Dauntless, Rust, and 7 Days to Die. I used to play Rainbow Six Siege, but stopped once I was sick of my lag…ha- Oh! Fun fact: I have about 1,805 hours on R6s, So I guess you could call me a no-life. Another fun fact: When my friend’s younger brother was talking smack about how he was so good at a Roblox game, I re-downloaded it and we fought for the 1st place spot on the arsenal. I got to 1st place, while he, the person who was so good at the game, didn’t make it into the top 5. 

Other than playing video games and being introverted, another thing that I enjoy doing is drawing. Sure, I’m not able to draw bodies well, but practice makes perfect! I don’t just draw random things, I usually like drawing people and designing my own characters. When creating the characters, I struggle with giving them clothing that should fit their personality. I also struggle with hairstyles as well, but I’m working on it. When making these characters, I either draw a random person and get too attached to it and give them a name, or I draw the same characters. Well, that’s all I can come up with. See ya.

A GRADUAL CHANGE. A recent Gallup survey revealed that 1 in 6 Gen Z Americans identifies as part of the LGBTQ+ community, with about half of all LGBTQ+ Americans identifying as bisexual. The number of people within Gen Z identifying as part of the LGBTQ+ community compared to previous generations shows a significant deviation from the past, with around 15 percent of Gen Z being LGBTQ+ and other generations not even hitting double digits.
