The main thing Quin enjoys doing is Art/Drawing, but she has some other hobbies and responsibilities as well. “When I'm not at school, I'm either working or just playing video games with some friends,” revealed Quin. “I no longer do any extracurricular activities, but I have been in AP Art for the past two years. I enjoyed it because it helps further push my creativity.” Quin then went on further to state, “Drawing gives me the ability to take what's in my head and make it real.”
We asked some of the past and present teachers to describe her. Coach Smith said, “Quin is smart, very creative, [and] generally helpful. I really do think Quin cares about people. Quin is a lot of what Walnut Grove is about. I enjoy teaching kids like Quin... When it comes to being helpful and getting things done, Quin does try hard which is literally half the battle,” Coach Smith says.
Coach Andrews, Quin’s old health and gym teacher, kept it short and sweet by saying “Quin is wonderful and sweet; that's all I have to say.”
As a library aid, Quin spends third block assisting those in the media center. Mrs. Britt, one of her directors/teachers, explains that Quin “[is] an extremely talented artist, who has an awesome work ethic and does anything that you ask her to do and does it extremely well.”
Quin revealed that the plan is to attend “Georgia Gwinnett College. I'm going for physical therapy. I'm going there because the college provides quality courses with affordable price. [Physical therapy] can make me enough money to support my way of living as well and let me help people in some way.”
Quin graduates high school in the next couple of weeks. “School was a love-hate relationship, but overall, I can't complain too much. I'm sad to leave my friends, and probably lose these friendships, but excited to be out on my own.” Quin further explains, “School is not really hard if you actually take time to do the work and communicate when you need help from your teacher; it isn't too bad.”
