Etched in Stone

Bear lake

Yang Zhang, Staff Writer

Yang Zhang is a current sophomore at Fossil Ridge High School. Zhang chose to join the Etched in Stone team to pursue her love of broadcasting and writing. Over the course of the next year, Zhang wants to improve her writing skill and craft stories for peers to learn from and enjoy.

Three years ago, she moved with her family from China to Colorado. The transition was difficult at times, like when she was counting down the hours before her father made it to Colorado. She had not seen him in years, and remembers looking up at the clock eagerly every minute. “Family and friends mean the most,” says Zhang. Her parents inspire her to keep working hard.

Her younger brother is in elementary school. Her family does not currently have any pets, but if she could, Zhang would adopt a cat, snake or tarantula. If you shuffled her playlist, you would find a mix of daycore and nightcore music and some remixes.

She does not discriminate when it comes to her favorite subjects in school, instead she appreciates all of the learning opportunities Fossil offers. She finds opportunities for teamwork in everything she does, from Unified Sports to Knowledge Bowl. Zhang does not consider herself competitive, unless she is competing in a Knowledge Bowl regional tournament like she did last year.

Dedicated to her studies, in the future Zhang hopes to go to an out-of-state school, preferably Harvard. Over quarantine she threw herself into her sketchbook and digital artwork. She hopes to pursue one of her favorite hobbies professionally and become an animator or a computer programmer. There is no doubt that Zhang will make the staff a more collaborative and enthusiastic team.
