Kenzie Hoffman
Sophomore Kenzie Hoffman has been involved in track, softball, girls wrestling, and journalism throughout high school. Hoffman is a staff writer for AHS Needle. In her free time, she enjoys lifting, spending time with friends, and listening to music. She loves jamming out to her JBL speaker. “I use it constantly, and it drives my family crazy,” Hoffman said.  

Her favorite sport is wrestling. Even though this is her first year participating, she grew up in a wrestling family. Although, Hoffman never thought she’d actually wrestle. “I love the sport, it pushes me to my limits,” Hoffman said. Outside of sports, Hoffman has a strong passion for lifting.  

Hoffman’s biggest accomplishment is her tattoo. It is on her inner left arm and says, “keep going.” She got the tattoo done on her birthday. Hoffman said, “There were hard times in my life where I didn’t think I could keep going, but I did. And that means everything to me.”  

Hoffman’s future plans are to become a guidance counselor and attend Iowa State University. She wants to help guide children in the right direction.
