A big part of Paint Branch High School is football games. We sit in the stadiums eagerly waiting for our team to score as we cheer them on to victory. One part of that culture is the game performances, including our beloved marching band which performs a familiar tune after every touchdown.

One of those performers is PB sophomore Damion Tatum, a bass drummer who brings each performance to life. Damion only began playing bass drum this school year but is progressively improving. He says, “It was hard at first but now I’m getting used to it.”
Damion has a wide array of interests including listening to EDM music. When asked his favorite artists, he simply replies, “I like certain types of DJs.” His other interests include watching soccer games and Total Drama, as well as reading. His favorite book is The Hate U Give because it “shows a true story of police bruatility” more deeply than other books.

As for his favorite place, Damion likes to visit Northern Virginia, specifically the mall in Pentagon City. While there, he enjoys socializing and visiting his favorite stores, Old Navy and Spencers. Damion also goes to Pentagon City Mall for his favorite food, orange chicken.

He describes himself as a hard-working person who is a mix of introverted and extroverted, depending on where he is. He wants to go to Towson University in Maryland and pursue his dream of becoming a news journalist.
