My name is Ryan Stacey and I am a senior at Moeller High school. My favorite subjects in school are math and science. Some of my hobbies include exploring nature, reading, and playing video games. One of my favorite things to do is to be active in nature. Now this could be bike rides on the Loveland trail, running the loop around Sharon Woods, or kayaking down the Little Miami river. I love to be active and always have something to do but sometimes a break is necessary from all the bustle of high school life. That break for me is nature because I find it serene and calming. It’s a place that I can go and ponder my thoughts. Reading is another thing I find relaxing and enjoyable. The genre I most prefer is Fantasy/ Sci-Fi. Some of my favorite books include: Ready Player One, The City of Ember series, the Harry Potter series, and The Lord of the Rings. These books interest me the most because they all present an alternate reality where times are much simpler, different, or advanced. One thing I have been told that I have remembered is, “You are shaped by the experiences you have, people you meet, and the books you read.” These are the things that I believe have made me who I am.
One more thing that has helped shape me throughout my life is basketball. For as long I as can remember, I have played basketball. It’s something that I could pickup whenever and do for hours on end. Fortunately, I was able to be a part of the 2019 state champion basketball team. The memories and friendships I made from that will last forever. Now, basketball may not be as appealing or fun to watch as other sports but it’s the blend of sports that make it fun. Basketball has much milder contact then football but is still physical, has the strategy of baseball, and is fun for everyone as in soccer. Like many sports though, basketball has taught me life skills and lessons. One thing in particular it has taught me is that your work ethic in sports – and academics – can apply throughout life. I can’t wait for basketball season but most importantly this year!
Senior year is a big deal, and I cannot think of a better place to be then Moeller High School. Since the day I walked into the front doors, I have loved this place. Moeller has been a second home for me literally and figuratively. I have spent whole days at Moeller; this could be for academics, sports, or extracurriculars. No matter what day or time, there is always something happening at Moeller. The culture here at Moeller is unlike anywhere else and cannot be replicated. I am looking forward to an amazing senior year!
