Student Spotlight: An Interview with Kelsea Kilbride
Kelsea Kilbride is a junior at Fairview High School this year. The Royal Banner interviewed her to find out what makes her unique! Q: What extracurriculars and clubs are you involved in at Fairview? A: I am on the Ultimate Frisbee team and the ERT.
Q: What do you enjoy about Ultimate? A: The people who play it are really fun, and the community around it is really cool. We are really accepting of everyone; you don’t have to try out, everyone makes the team. You can learn a lot and make new friends.
Q: What would you say to kids who want to get involved with the Ultimate team? A: You don’t have to have any experience to do it. It was after we played Monarch and we lost 15-0 that I realized it was a lot of hard work, and it was really cool when you do something right and make a big catch. I was MVP for one game. I picked up the trash, which doesn’t mean just picking stuff up. It just meant I caught really bad throws when people didn’t think anyone would catch them.
Q: What do you enjoy about working with the ERT? A: Saving lives! I want to be a first responder, so I want to save people.
Q: What steps do you have to take to become a first responder? A: It depends whether you want to be a firefighter or a paramedic. Usually, to be a firefighter you have to be certified in emergency medical training too because it’s getting more competitive.
Q: What do you like about Fairview? What would you change about the school? A: My favorite thing about Fairview is definitely the people. A lot of people are sad and need help but don’t know where to get it, so I think that’s a way Fairview could change.
