10 minutes with a Trojan/Trojanette: Helana (Kade) Miller


Annastasia O'Looney, Student writer

What’s your most memorable accomplishment?

Getting into the gifted program in 2nd grade, and being a member since then. People stopped acknowledging it after middle school, but it’s still a big thing.

What are your hobbies outside of school?

Painting, assembling cosplay props, playing video games, and theater.

Who’s your favorite teacher and what’s your best memory with them?

Probably Ms. Hyder! She’s the first teacher I came out to, and hands down the most supportive.

What’s a silly fact that no one knows about you?

I collect bones.

What’s your wildest memory at GNA?

I think anything that involves Stove counts as a wild memory. He gets up to a lot of stupid (albeit hilarious) stuff. I guess the biggest thing that I can remember is the selection of the class song. Everyone complained even, though they had to vote it in.

What activities, clubs, or sports are you involved in at GNA?

Drama Club (stage crew), Student Council, National Honor Society (Secretary).

What are your plans after high school?

I’ll likely be attending the State Police Academy in Vermont or some other state that isn’t here. If that fails, I’ve always wanted to get into the film industry.

What is your dream job?

It’s never been practical, but ideally, I would’ve loved to own a florist shop or cafe.

If you could have one superpower what would it be and why?

The ability to manipulate probability could theoretically control the world with such a power. “The probability I win this election is 100%.” “The probability it rains today is 0%”.

 What is an accomplishment you are proud of?

I’ve been taking college courses at  LCCC since my freshman year, much earlier than most people I know. I think it shows that I’m pretty smart:).
