• The Arrow Will Return After Summer Break. . .maybe
Cheyenne McKee
Cheyenne McKee is a freshman at Clairemont High School and a first-time student-journalist. She loves journalism and being at her school.

She said, “High school has actually been a fun and interesting experience so far. It is very different from what I am used to. Everyone always said that I would hate it but I have come to like it very much.”

Since she was in kindergarten she has always been in an independent study school so going to a public school is very different for her, especially since it is high school. Her first day at Clairemont was very nerve-wracking and scary for her, but there were many people who helped her through her first day.

Cheyennes' hobbies include reading, writing, drawing, painting, and one of her favorite things to do is go to the beach, no matter the temperature. She also enjoys being with her friends.

“Last summer I practically lived at the beach, it was amazing! My favorite kind of day would probably be to lay around the house until about 11, eat, and then go to the beach just to chill and read a book with my friends,” said Cheyenne.

Her favorite classes are journalism and IT. Although she has recently lost interest, she plans on powering through.

McKee said, “I think that journalism can be at times, stressful, but I like it because I love to write and I figured that a journalism class, other than English, would be a great way to improve and hone my writing. I also really like bio' because we get to learn about the anatomy of stuff and I really like dissecting stuff.”

She hopes to do good enough in journalism to get a job in that kind of workforce, but if it does not work out her family owns a pool cleaning business that she can always fall back on. Although she would much rather be a journalist, she is very glad that she has a plan B.

“All of the men in my family all own their own pool cleaning business, and all of the women have helped with it at one point or another. I am really thankful that I can always fall back on that if anything else doing not work out. However, my main goal right now is to pursue a job in journalism,” Cheyenne said.

Cheyenne’s parents were both born and raised in the US; her father is part Native-American and Irish and her mom is German. She has two half-siblings a sister 26, and a brother 22.

“Family to me is one of the most important things in my life. For me, I don’t have ‘best friends’ I have a family, and if you don’t have family you have very little,” she said.

Cheyenne is normally a person who keeps to herself unless she is with her friends. She normally hangs out in Mr. Hilgers classroom during lunch and especially likes Clairemont’s teriyaki chicken.

“I feel like Charles Dickens said it best, ‘Happiness is a gift and the trick is not to expect it, but to delight in it when it comes,’” Cheyenne said.
