The Vegan Flounder

Seniors

     Makayla Powell is our school’s funniest female student and swim team captain. She was voted by the whole senior class as “Most Humorous”, next to our last senior of the month Kobe Overton. We all agree that there was nobody else deserving of this award.

We interviewed Makayla to get the inside scoop on our most humorous female.

Taylor: How do you express you humor?

Makayla: To be completely honest I’m not funny I’m just extremely weird and make weird facial expressions and people find it hilarious.

T: Does your humor make your life better?

M: It’s not about making my life better its about making other people’s lives better.

Lexi: What does it take to be the captain of the swim team?

M: You have to be leader and you have to be a decent person who is not scary.

Lexi: How long have you been swimming? And do you plan to swim in college?

M: Well it all started when my mom tried to drown me 5 minutes after I was born, she took me straight to the sink after the doctors left and I guess my fight or flight instinct came about and I have loved swimming ever since. And no I do not plan to continue my career as a swimmer to the next level but I will forever hold the legacy of the Vegan Flounder.

T: What made you start being a vegan?

M: I watched a documentary about being vegan and did a lot of research about it, and became very passionate about it and was something I wanted to become.

We asked a couple seniors about what they think about Makayla…

Lexi: Do you think Makayla is the most humorous girl at our school?

Ashlyn Richardson(senior): Personally I believe I am the funniest person at the school, but yeah Makayla is funny too. She is a nice, fun person to be around, but she could shower more. She thinks that just swimming in a pool makes her clean but it doesn’t. She may not eat fish but she sure does swim like one.

Taylor: Has Makayla made your high school experience more bearable?

Katie Costa: Yes, Makayla’s humor makes days go by faster. I always have someone to joke around with and I love that she doesn’t take anything serious as I am the same way.

Makayla really impacts our school. She is friends with everyone and everyone is friends with her. The way she has changed her life to bettering animals shows her strong willed personality. Not just anyone could resist the temptations of the famous Kani House yum yum sauce. We here at the Wood believe Makayla could be the next “Amy Schumer.”
