Jiayi Li, Page Editor

Joy Li is a sophomore at HHS and is a page editor for HHS Media. For her second year in HHS Media, her primary focus will be on the yearbook. Joy also actively participates in the debate club, Model UN and band, but she is a member in more clubs. Outside of school, Joy volunteers to teach Ukrainian children English online and focuses on humanitarian aid. Her favorite book genres are horror and psychological thrillers. In contrast, her favorite film genre is humor, but she still enjoys watching scary films. Joy hopes to be accepted into college when the time comes.
