Haylee Hinkle

Allow me to introduce Haylee Hinkle. In this interview, we discussed a variety of topics while still keeping it short and simple. Haylee is a senior at Corry High School, and she’s 17 years old.

With all of the chaos of the world, Covid-19 is definitely high up on the list of life changers. Seniors are taking a big hit this year, including Haylee. This was a good time to get insight on how Haylee is feeling. And like many others, she is feeling a bit disappointed. Haylee said, “I miss being able to go out and actually have fun.”

To lighten the mood, I asked Haylee if she has any pets, and she does! “I have a guinea pig named Axel.”

I also asked about any inspirations she may have, and she responded with, “Melanie Martinez definitely. Her music helped me through a really dark time in my life. She’s helped me feel better and her music said what I physically couldn’t.”

And because she’s a senior, of course followed the big question: “What are your plans for after high school?” There was absolutely no hesitation before her answer. “I want to be a nail tech and own my own nail salon.”

Haylee seems very determined and confident in what she wants for her future, and that’s truly admirable. With Haylee’s determination, I’m sure she will be very successful.
