Humans of Northwood: Hannah Kessel ’18

Hannah Kessel '18

I am a senior. I’ve been here for four years. I like to be outside, hiking, rock climbing — the whole deal. I’m really into English. I like to read. I’m a human rights kind of girl. I want to be a lawyer. I have a goal to not be late to first period, because I’ve been late to first period every day this week. So I’m going to stop that starting Monday. I’ll be on time every day. I also want to meet some more people. I’m a rock climber, and I want to climb Frosted Mug without falling, which is pretty hard. It’s a 5.9. I am writing a book right now. It’s going okay. I’m writing about the state of politics in the United States, and how we can de-polarize without compromising on human rights. Nothing “alt-right;” no “alt-left.” I don’t know who I want to read it…Trump, but he won’t read it. I’m writing it because I think it’s important. It’s important to talk about progress, the environment and issues that are at the forefront of society right now. I think it’s important to keep talking, even if people aren’t influenced by what you say.
