Lilly Wolfe, Columnist

Lilly Wolfe is an eighth grader at Horizon Honors. This is her third year at Horizon Honors and her second as a columnist for The Horizon Sun. Writing has always intrigued her and she is excited for the opportunity to improve her writing abilities. In her spare time she enjoys acrylic painting, basketball, reading, and playing board games with her friends and family. She has also been a part of the Horizon Honors basketball team for the past two years and hopes to continue this year. Another one of her passions is reading; her favorite genres are young adult mystery and true crime. She spends a lot of time learning about true crime and hopes to one day become a forensics scientist. Some of her favorite things to paint are whimsical landscapes and minimalistic cacti. When she isn’t busy with school or hobbies she has a good time playing (and winning) board games, such as “Munchkins”, “Aeon’s: The New Age”, and “Cosmic Encounters”, with her brother and friends. Wolfe recently got a five-month-old tabby cat named Curly. She relishes the time she spends playing and cuddling with him and can’t wait to spend more time with him. Wolfe is excited for the coming year and is eager to keep writing for The Horizon Sun.
