Haylie Yee, Managing Editor

Third-year journalist Haylie Yee is an incoming junior and had been a Team Editor for two years before becoming the current Managing Editor of Aquila. Yee’s interest in design led to her beginning her first year in journalism as a freshman. This year, her plans are to write something hard-hitting, such as a piece on the issue of poverty and homelessness, which is something she thinks should be discussed more. Furthermore, Yee hopes to expand her design portfolio this year. Some of the extracurriculars Yee is actively involved in are Yearbook club, ASB, and California Scholarship Federation. Although she is very involved in school activities, outside of school Yee also enjoys reading fiction, as well as practicing Taekwondo. From a young age, Yee began to read and that's where her love of books began. She typically chooses and leans towards fantasy novels as it is her favorite genre, such as one of her all time favorite book series, Harry Potter. One of the clubs she created this year was Book club, where she will continue to share her love for reading. Yee’s ongoing experience with Taekwondo had started ever since she was put into classes at seven, and has continued to do so, becoming a 2nd degree blackbelt, and additionally an instructor for many people who vary in age. She is currently working on her goal to receive a 3rd degree blackblet by the end of highschool. In her free time, Yee loves to be creative and make art, whether it is drawing or occasionally painting.
