This is my second year at Kenny Lake School. I was born in Anchorage, Alaska, and I lived in Eagle River for the first five years of my life. I then moved to Noorvik, Alaska, a small village in the northwestern part of the state. This small village consists of roughly 700 people. Noorvik is very similar to Kenny Lake in a lot of ways. Just like here people can do a large variety of activities such as the following: hunting, fishing, swimming, sports, and many other interesting hobbies. It’s not the best place to live, but I survived.
I am 13 years old and also in eighth grade. Here in Kenny Lake, I’m slowly making, but that’s all right. This year, a group of students had a choice between Home Economics and Writers’ Workshop. I was one of them. I decided to do Writers’ Workshop because I wanted to learn how to become a better writer. I also heard about the field trip to Kennecott for Writers’ Workshop. I found it amusing to go to Kennecott with some of my friends and other people that I know. Now, I share a classroom with some lower classmates and a few aristocrats. I hope to have another good year here in Kenny Lake.
