Cheyenne Underwood is a senior at Foley High School and a member of the graduating class of 2019. She has been on the newspaper staff for two years and has been involved in multiple clubs, including Leo Club, Link Crew, and Future Teachers of America, over the course of her high school career.
When she is not at school, Cheyenne enjoys hanging out with her family and friends as well as reading books and watching movies- specifically, any movies that feature Marvel and DC characters.
She also happens to be a close friend of mine; so, I took the time to sit down with Cheyenne and asked her a couple of questions.
What has been your greatest high school experience?
“My favorite experience so far has been getting more involved in the clubs that I am in. They have helped me to open up more and make some of the best friends that I have ever had, shaping me into who I am today.”
What do you plan to do after graduation?
“I plan to either attend Coastal Alabama Community College or the University of South Alabama to pursue my dream job of being a marine biologist, which is a dream that I have had since I was 12 years old.”
What is one of your favorite quotes?
“One of my all-time favorite quotes is a Marvel Cinematic Universe quote: ‘Faith is my sword. Truth my shield. Knowledge my armor,’ by Stephen Strange. It reminds me that no matter what happens, if we just believe in faith, truth, and knowledge, then nothing will be able to knock us down.”
What is your favorite time of year and why?
“My favorite time of year is a mix between Christmas, New Year’s, and the Fourth of July, because I get to spend time with my family celebrating the holidays.”
If you could witness any event past, present, or future, what would it be?
“I would go back in time to the 19th century and witness the Grimm brothers, Jacob and Wilhelm, as they traveled many places to discover, record, and create the folklore that most people in the world today would know. Some of the folk tales that they created were Cinderella, Hansel and Gretel, Rapunzel, Rumpelstiltskin, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, etc.”
Cheyenne is a good student and a great person in general. She is outgoing, approachable, and willing to talk to anyone who needs a little sunshine in their lives.
If you are in need of a friend, you could not pick a better one than Cheyenne.
