It all started in the eighth grade after transferring to Lovejoy from the seaside city of Huntington Beach, California, when Izzy became a writer for her school newspaper at Willow Springs. Mrs. Sanders made her an offer to be a writer and editor in the school paper. That’s where her journey of taking photos and spending nights typing away on her computer began (with her dog curled up next to her, of course). With her favorite subject in school being English and a love for writing, it’s not hard to see why she joined newspaper. Campus life is mainly what she writes about. However, the latest story in the community always interests her. When it comes to after school the most common words when others ask to make plans are “I can’t I have soccer.” Throughout the year she enjoys playing soccer with Meja in Dallas and the Lady Leopards. Although, in her free time you can probably find her binge watching Gossip Girl or One Tree Hill. In the mornings you’ll find her at the local Starbucks (she’s a proud gold card member). Traveling is one of her favorite things in the world. She spends summers on the beach in California and Florida and the winters visiting her sister in Chicago.
