Being a freshman is tough, but being a freshman from a new school is a little tougher.

Being in a new community is like being in a new world for her. Her goal is to be more  open.“I open up to people quite easily. To be honest, I’ve never been the type to be against anyone,” she said. Her hope this year is to gain success from her school work and to make new friends.

After school, Ashley takes piano lessons and swims. She said, “It can be stressful trying to balance my activities and school because of the amount of work that’s given.”  

She continued, “Believe it or not, I am actually afraid of the water, which is absolutely crazy since I swim. It’s just that you can drown easily, so I can’t trust it sometimes.”

Lohr comes from a European heritage and is an only child, though she is very close with her relatives who she says have influenced her. “I grew up being an only child, but I always am surrounded by my family members. No matter what I love them deeply,” she said.

We wish her the best of luck in her new school life at WHBHS!
