Chaya Blount, Staff Writer

Do you have something in your life that you’ve always enjoyed doing? For Paint Branch junior Chaya Blount, that thing is basketball. In fact, Chaya’s favorite activity is playing basketball, something she's done since sixth grade and something she has always been interested in. 

When asked which books she has read that have shaped her into who she currently is, Chaya answers, “I’ve read a couple books like Big Nate, Diary of a Wimpy Kid -- Dork Diaries, the tween books.”

Her favorite movies are the three Creed films and her favorite TV series is All-American: Homecoming. Her favorite food is pineapple pizza, which, if she had her preferred superpower of flight, she could pick up from the air. As for why she’d want the ability to fly, she notes, “I’d want to fly because sometimes I just need to escape.” 

As for how excited she is for her future on a scale of 1-10, she puts herself at about an 8 because “right now, I’m in high school and can’t really do anything. But as far as college goes, I’m pretty excited.” 

The last gift she gave a friend was a gift box filled with letters and their favorite snacks. She doesn’t exactly have a favorite music artist because of how many songs and different artists she listens to because she grew up surrounded by all kinds of music. Her mother used to manage Dru Hill, the American R&B group, as well as a Baltimore group called “The Corporates”. Chaya as well has been in the record studio, giving her the chance to make her own music.
