Moments: Maintaining the Legacy

Ali Woodyard, 15, Grant freshman (second from left):

“I think it’s important because it (shows) parents and, you know, other kids what it’s like to be on dance team. You don’t just practice it for like five minutes, you know it takes a long time. This was six hours of just teaching and going through and doing it over and over … I actually really like little kids, and we got fourth graders, and they were really sweet. It was fun to just kind of hang out with them because they’re not as immature as you think. We played little games with them and stuff, and they learned it really fast. It wasn’t like as difficult as we all thought it was gonna be. But it was just fun to actually teach instead of learn.”

Jessica liked reading a long time before she discovered that she could write her own stories. After that, writing was all she wanted to do. She has explored many different hobbies throughout her life, but she always comes back to writing because it’s the one thing that makes her feel like she can be her complete self without being judged. Born in San Francisco, she moved to Portland as a small kid and loves the city’s beauty, culture and weirdness.
