My name is Hailey Johnson. I am a junior and mass communications major at Piedmont University.
I was born and raised in Arizona but moved to Newnan, Georgia my sophomore year of high school. It’s difficult because all my extended family lives in Arizona so it’s hard not having them around but just gives us more of an excuse to go back and visit! I am on the Piedmont women’s soccer team, and I am involved with The Roar as the sports editor. I love writing as well as photography and am always taking pictures whether it’s of my friends when we hang out, out on the field at a sporting event, or planned photoshoots.
I come from a big family who I absolutely adore, and they mean so much to me. I have two brothers and two sisters. My older brother, Brenden, who is a helicopter mechanic in the Navy, is married and has a beautiful two-year-old daughter! I am the second oldest, then I have my two sisters who are both in high school. Rylie is a senior and Makenzie is a junior. Something interesting about them is that they’re only 11 months apart, so they are super close! Then I have my youngest brother, Callen, he just started second grade and loves to play baseball. They all are truly my best friends and I love being around them. I am very close with both my parents, especially my dad. Him and I have very similar personalities, not to mention I look just like him. My mom is the sweetest, most down to earth person I’ve met, and she always makes sure I feel loved and thought of, especially when I’m away at school! Something my whole family enjoys is the lake. We have a ski boat and love to take it out to go wakeboarding, tubing, and fishing. If I could live on the lake, I would!
After I graduate, I’m not sure exactly what I want to do but I’m hoping it will involve journalism and possibly photography!
