He's very outgoing and can make anyone feel special. Keep reading below to find out more about Traven and nominate your friends on Instagram (@ahshawkeye) to be next week's Hawk of the Week. Grade: 11 Sports/School Activities: Soccer and ballroom. What do you want to be when you grow up and why? I've always wanted to be in the field of psychology, I've been leaning towards being a counselor. Favorite food: Bananas and my momma's chicken rolls Favorite song/band: Fake Love by Drake What is something you are passionate about and why? I've always been passionate about soccer. I've played since I was 5 and haven't stopped since. It's like a whole other world when I'm playing. All I can think about is keeping the ball out of the goal (cause I'm a keeper). There's no stress, no drama, and no work. It's just me the ball, and others who can enjoy playing alongside me. What is your favorite thing about Alta and why? Alta... there's too many things to love!!! But if I had to choose one I'd have to say the students of course. Now I know most people say that, but it's only because it's true. Have you ever sat down and talked with any single student at Alta for more than 1 minute? Try it sometime. They will change your life. I love talking to all the athletes, student government, dance teams, club members, and just the regular students. They are amazing people who strive to make our world better and I love that about them. What is your favorite subject in school and why? I absolutely love ballroom. I never quite knew how much I loved dancing until I took Ballroom One freshmen year. It changed my life. Being able to enjoy one song with one person and just leaving your feelings on the floor is the best thing you can experience. Also, ballroom has allowed me to meet so many crazy, but fun people. You'd be surprised of all the... we'll say... "interesting" people willing to spend one song with you. It's the best. Also, now I'm on ballroom team, so that's how much it has changed me. What is something unique about you that you find central to your personality? Well my momma has always told me that I have a big heart. I absolutely love people. I care about how everyone is doing and I'm always looking for someone to talk to, or to be my friend. I'm not into being "popular" because who needs popularity when you can have genuine friends. Plus, people are the most intriguing species on this entire planet, and I love getting to know as many of them as I absolutely can. What is something no one really knows about you? Well I guess I have two things. First is where my name came from. Most people laugh at the first time the here my name. Mostly because no one can pronounce it properly (it's pronounced with a short A if you're wondering). Well it came from my Uncle Travis. While I was born, he was serving an LDS mission in Hawaii. He was heart broken that he couldn't see me being born. As a gift to my uncle my momma named me after him, but added a little uniqueness just for me. Secondly, I have this obsession with Michael Jackson. He is literally my idol. I have always grown up trying out his moves and learning to moon walk. I casually start singing Billie Jean down the hallways. Also, I dressed as him for Halloween one year. Other than that I think I'm an open book. Thanks for choosing me for this article.
