Kenzie Hoffman, AHS Needle Editor

Kenzie Hoffman, a junior at Atlantic High School, is an editor for AHSneedle.com and senior magazine. As an editor she writes stories for the paper, edits papers for other students at her high school, and interviews people for the school newspaper. Hoffman has been involved in track, wrestling, softball, journalism, dance, and being a teacher’s aid.  

Hoffman’s favorite story she wrote is Hair Styles Across the Decades.  “I really liked it because I got to look through all the old yearbooks and express myself through my writing,”  Hoffman said.

Hoffman said her family has impacted her life for the better and helped her become the person she is today. Her role model is her legal guardian, Jeremy, because “he showed me you are stronger than your battles and if you want to be the person you want to become, you have to put in the work.”

In her free time, Hoffman enjoys reading the most because “I can dive into the book and forget about my surroundings.” She also enjoys writing, because she has the freedom to express herself. Hoffman loves to listen to music and her favorite genres are classic rock when she’s in the mood to jam out and country when she wants a heart throb. 

Someone that makes Hoffman’s mood go from a one to a ten is her friend Kobe.  “He is one of the sweetest and most kind people I know,” Hoffman said.  “Not to mention he’s hilarious.”  She hopes to graduate from college with a minor degree in psychology and a teaching degree to become a guidance counselor. “I know I’m destined for greatness, and it all starts with the decisions I make everyday.”
