Ever since middle school, Brynn Atticks has been involved in the school announcements. Although ETV went virtual this year, she and the team were able to continue the announcements.

During the pandemic, she began to make jewelry and became a small business owner. She will head to Bloomsburg University and possibly continue her business on the side.

Stinger: What was your favorite high school memory? Why?

Atticks: I really liked the football games. They were really fun when we could go to them, and I guess all these special events that we don’t really have right now, but that’s why I’m excited for prom, because we get to actually have some kind of social event finally.

Stinger: What will you miss most about your time at Emmaus?

Atticks: Honestly, just like the people I’ve met at Emmaus. My friend group definitely changed from middle school to high school, and I feel like through the last couple years, I found my people, and I’m going to miss my friends a lot.

Stinger: Any advice for underclassmen?

Atticks: I feel like just push yourself but not too hard, because my first couple years of Emmaus I feel like I push myself too much academically. And still push yourself and get all those classes, because I have AP classes and I have dual enrollment classes, so definitely do those because I’m like half of a year ahead in college now, but at the same time try to enjoy it while it’s here because it goes fast.

Stinger: What was your favorite class at Emmaus? Why?

Atticks: I honestly really liked personal finance [management] because, first of all, I had Mrs. Duffy — she’s amazing — but it really helped open my eyes to finances in the future, like how to buy a house, how to rent an apartment, just like all those really important things, and it helped me with my jewelry business, Brynn Bee Boutique, and it actually inspired me to actually start selling it online. So that’s definitely my favorite class besides Communications– I took four years of that.

Stinger: What is your biggest takeaway from doing ETV?

Atticks: Even though we’re not really doing group projects, but I know the first two years we did a lot of group projects, and I guess just like having to work with people even if you didn’t choose to work with them and forming those relationships. Like I’ve been with these people — most of them — since freshman year, and it’s been really fun to get to know them and now we just have kind of a vibe with the whole class.

Stinger: What excites you most about college?

Atticks: I guess just being in person again is really going to be fun because they said it’s going to be all in person, fingers crossed.
