Jiayi Li, Staff Reporter

Jiayi Li is a freshman at Harrisonburg High School, and this is her first year with the HHS Media community and staff. She’s looking forward to being involved with this community. She enjoys binging tv shows on Netflix, talking to her friends and meeting new people. Music takes up a big part of her life because she loves to practice the oboe and piano. When she has free time, she likes to spend it outdoors by going on hikes and runs. She hopes to work as a psychiatrist once she graduates from university.
