Smiling at her Zoom screen, junior Tiffany Ung tutors a middle school student. Ung began tutoring this week and hopes to make a difference in the mindset of students regarding virtual learning. “I know everyone’s struggling in their unique situations right now, so I figured by tutoring, I might take some things off people’s plates,” Ung said. “I want kids to feel confident in their school work so they don’t feel bogged down by everything going on.”

Displaying a tattoo of a lion, junior Joel Ottensmeyer says that his tattoo was designed for him by his sister. Despite some disagreement on his decision to get a tattoo at a young age, Ottensmeyer continued his family’s tradition of getting tattoos because it was something that he cared about a lot. “[My tattoo] means [being] strong, prideful and protecting the people that you love,” Ottensmeyer said.

With the word “loved” made to look like a cross, senior Katharine Segrave exhibits her tattoo. Segrave faced hardships last year and relied on her faith to guide her through the adversity. “I shut everyone out of my life, and I felt like I didn’t have any hope. I wanted something permanent on my body to always remind me that regardless of what my mind might be thinking, I can’t wipe away the fact that He loves me,” Segrave said. “This tattoo means a connection to God that I can never take away because it is a permanent thing on my body, and it’s very special to me.”
