Robin Conner is a Junior at Brashier Middle College, and this is her second year being on Newspaper. Robin is a very exuberant and excitable person, and she has many interests that give insight into the kind of person she is.
“Some of my hobbies are watching tv, kayaking, skiing, going to little shops and things like that. I’m really into yoga and meditating. I love drinking coffee,” says Conner.
Robin also really enjoys the performing arts, specifically musical theater.
“I really enjoyed being a part of ‘Mary Poppins’, because I didn’t have a lot pressure on me to perform since I was backstage crew. So I worked backstage and I had fun with everyone. Plus the music score is amazing. We also had a fantastic backstage crew and cast,”says Conner.
She also has a love for Hamilton the Musical, which is her dream play to take part in.
“[Hamilton] is just amazing, and the story is just so informative and good, and I would love to be in it some day,” says Conner.
Robin has a love for history that can be shown in ways other than her obsession for Hamilton the Musical.
“I just like learning about things in the past and how there’s a different side to everything. I don’t like definite answers, every answer can be right. I mean there are some things that are absolute and there are things that we don’t even know,” says Conner.
Over the summer Robin was very busy working in retail and food service. Aside from that, she was able to do some fun things like attending concerts, going to Lake Hartwell, running the world’s largest 5k, and vacationing in Miami.
“I went to Miami over the summer. I learned that I have a lot of Cuban relatives [….] I had a lot of Cuban food. I went to the Versailles restaurant, Key Biscayne, [and] went on a boat. Overall, I would live [in Miami]. Besides New York, I would live there,” says Conner.
Robin has a unique love for Japan that extends to many facets of their culture.
“Japanese culture is all about caring about the people around you, and that means a lot to me. I am also a total dweeb and I love watching anime. Sword Art Online, Ouran High School Host Club, Rwby, Psycho Pass, and Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood, are some of my favorite animes. I would also love to go to the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. It is my dream to go two weeks before the beginning of the games so that I can explore the city,” says Conner.
Many people are excited to be seniors in high school because it means they are about to start a new chapter in their life, however, Robin is not looking forward to her senior year because of the implications it has on the rest of her life.
“I am not excited for my senior year. There is just so much pressure that your senior year be perfect. I plan to go to college after I graduate, because that’s what is expected. It’s been ingrained in us since childhood, you go to highschool, you go to college, you get a job, you get married, you settle down, you have kids, and you support your family,” says Conner.
Aside from this outlook on her future education, she does have some specific plans for her time after high school.
“I know I want to go into the Air Force, because I come from a family where both of my parents were in the Air Force and so was my cousin. Air Force facilities are the best, and they treat you the best. I want to go to college first because you get higher rank,” says Conner.
Through everything, Robin loves being a part of the Newspaper and contributing her time, effort, and opinions to our publication.
“I like how [the staff] is very laid back, and I can write about almost anything I want, within reason,” says Conner.
