Earlier this month I had the pleasure of getting to know Elizabeth Koh, one of clay’s staff members. Elizabeth is new to clay this year and is a part of the Social Media Team. She joined because her friends had asked her to try it out. She also enjoys and has experience with PR, so she thought, “why not?”
Elizabeth is fifteen years old, and she lives in Singapore. She has three brothers aged twenty-one, twelve, and eight. Sometimes they annoy her, but she says that most of the time she loves to hang out with them. In her spare time, she enjoys drawing, acting, reading, and occasionally playing video games. Another one of her favorite hobbies is “not going outside”, she says. She enjoys gothic books such as The Phantom of the Opera. Elizabeth also loves to listen to music, and her favorite genres are indie, pop, Scandinavian tech, melodic metal (similar to metal, but with more emphasis on melodic instruments), and musical soundtracks. Her favorite musicals include Dear Evan Hansen, Wicked, Les Miserables, Newsies, The Phantom of the Opera, and The Sound of Music. If she could live in any fictional universe, she would want to live in Much Ado About Nothing or any other Shakespearean play.
Elizabeth is starting tenth grade this year. She has been with TPS for several years. This year she is enrolled in Health and Wellness, Geometry, English 3: Literature Survey, Psychology and Counseling, Pre-AP Biology, Entrepreneurship and Small Business, and Integrated Business Applications. Her favorite school subject is art.
It was truly a joy to interview Elizabeth. Over the course of our 30-minute phone call, I could already tell she is intelligent, humorous, and dedicated to everything she does. She will definitely be an excellent staff member!
