Jaylen Tolliver

Jaylen Tolliver, Staff Writer

Born and raised in Goodyear, Arizona since birth, Jaylen Tolliver began his interest in writing in 5th grade due to completing his test early and having free time. Ever since he chose to write a story for fun, it became a habit with writing new ones. He started to see another part of him, Creativity and ideas, and they started coming easily to him. He used those traits with other hobbies as well, beginning with creating board games, designing home interiors, creating house floor plans, and more. His biggest dream is to pursue a career in architecture.

But, before his home life of creativity, he also has had a love for sports ever since he was little. He’s always been loved by coaches and noticed highly for his talent. He went through many sports like basketball, baseball, and more but none of them was his real match until finally found it, volleyball. 

Although he likes ideas and learning new things, he’s an introvert and is often alone. He’s a calm guy and spends a lot of time outside when he can. He feels a strong connection with the earth which always helps him relax. Jaylen would often be hard on his writings, believing they were not good enough and getting frustrated. But going outside would always help him recover. Besides him being an introvert, he still likes to make friends and loosens up, possibly even too much after talking for a while. 

Being a new student at Verrado will give Jaylen new opportunities to find new interests and meet new people. He hopes to become even more hard-working and succeed in school. His dream of being successful guides him through any conflicts he may face. But in the end, all Jaylen wants is to succeed in life and make himself and other people happy.
