Hey y’all! My name is Jackye Jiotsop and I am from Alpharetta, Georgia. I am 16 years old and I was born in Kansas City, Kansas. I guess you could relate me to Dorthy, though I’ve never been stuck in a tornado before.
My favorite sports team is the Kansas City Chiefs. Even though they choked during the 2021 playoff game for the Super Bowl, I still have to represent my team. When you first meet me, I can come off as a shy person, but once you get to know me, I have a really good personality. I have never been on an airplane before. My favorite color is sage green, or baby pink. I have a really deep obsession with Beyonce. She is probably my favorite person on this earth besides my mom. I know every single song, every music video, dance move, concert, tour, family member, friend, and background dancer associated with Beyonce. Not personally, but since I know everything about her, it makes me feel like we’re best friends.
I am a current dancer at my school. I love dancing in all areas but specifically hip-hop and jazz. I am also an aspiring journalist and decided to participate in the University of Georgia’s Journalism camp. I hope that I will learn about Journalism and also have a stronger writing style. I will be a rising junior, which means I have to start thinking about college. That doesn’t really excite me but I know most kids have to go through with it also, so I know I’m not alone. My dream college is Northwestern University. It’s a really hard school to get into, but I believe if I work my butt off this year, that I can get into the school. It’s amazing because it’s so close to Chicago, but still far enough to have its own college town space.
.Some random facts about myself are that I am a master “Just Dance” player. If someone is going to challenge me, they have to be mentally and physically prepared of what they are getting themselves into. I can count on my fingers how many times I’ve lost at Just Dance. Speaking of my fingers, I am actually double jointed in my fingers. I can move them back really far to the point people think they are going to fall off. I always get that stare like, “That’s so gross”. But it does make a really cool party trick!
