Being the oldest of five, Allison has been writing since she was ten. Talented in the extreme, she is passionate about writing, and Clay Magazine is her debut as a writer. This semester is her first with the Potter’s School.
An avid reader, she has an insatiable appetite for books, perusing everything from Harry Potter to Agatha Christie novels. Currently, her book of choice is The Hunger Games, and her favorite band is Casting Crowns. She also enjoys the music of tobyMac.
Her favorite foods are pizza, fried chicken, and biscuits. Cookie dough is her favorite flavor of ice cream. She has one pet, a two year old lizard named Lucy who does not like people. Previously, she owned a betta fish named Neville. Her Hogwarts house is Gryffin-claw- the Sorting Hat deemed her too awesome and intelligent for just one house.
She has four younger siblings: three brothers and one sister ranging in age from fifteen to five. Allison loves to watch movies and snack on pizza with her family. They traveled to Universal Studios over the summer and loved every minute of it.
Intriguingly enough, she has nearly completed her Star and Stripes award for the American Heritage Girls, the highest award that can be achieved and the equivalent of the Eagle Scout award. A bright and determined young woman, Allison has dreams of writing her own novel. After high school, she would like to pursue a degree in Forensic Science, Chemistry, or Health.
A person she finds inspiring is C.S. Lewis, author of The Chronicles of Narnia and several other novels. Having a penchant for calligraphy, she likes to write out her favorite quotes on canvas. She also enjoys making Harry Potter wands in her spare time. One of Allison’s favorite quotes is probably “If you want to change the world, pick up your pen and write,” by Martin Luther.
This incredible young lady has a heart full of compassion for others and an unmatched zeal for literature of all kinds. She has the rare ability to change the world with her eloquent words. Welcome Allison Pewett, Class Reports columnist, to Clay Magazine!
