Student Spotlight on Ania Alekseyev


Cami Trauschke, Staff Writer

What activities or hobbies do you enjoy outside of school?

Although I enjoy many different hobbies, my favorite one has to be baking. I first started baking when I was around 5, and since then I’ve gotten pretty good at it and I’ve been able to create my own recipes. It’s an amazing stress reliever and lets me make something that my friends and family will enjoy.

 Which countries/places would you like to visit? 

One country I have always dreamed of visiting is France. I’m very interested in French culture and would love to visit both the cities and the countryside. I would also love to visit Hawaii again. I was kind of young when I first went there, so being able to experience it again would be great.

 How do you judge a person?

I always judge a person based on their first impression. I think the way a person presents themselves when first meeting you is important because it’s most likely the way they act around everyone else.

 What movie could you never get tired of watching?

One movie I can’t get tired of watching is Mean Girls. The movie’s humor and characters never get old.

 When you are old, what do you think children will ask you to tell stories about? 

When I get older, I think children will ask me about what life was like during Covid 19. It’s definitely not every year the world gets hit with a global pandemic, so people who weren’t alive to experience it will most likely ask for stories about the lockdown.

 What is something that you have learned in your childhood that has stuck with you? 

Something that has stuck with me since childhood is to do what makes you happy without worrying about what others think. I learned this message from my dance teacher who taught me to follow my own path and not let the criticism of others get to me.

 What qualities do you value in people? 

People who are genuine, kind, and trustworthy always stick out to me. These qualities always belong to the best people you can ever meet and people who you constantly want to be around. I also value people who are good listeners and will listen to me speak, whether I’m talking about something personal, serious, or just nonsense.
