Lorenzo is a Senior at Claremont Highschool and a reporter for the Wolfpacket. Their current favorite musical artists include Youngboy Never Broke Again, Lucki, Vince Staples, Yung Lean, Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, MAVI and Steve Lacy. Their favorite song as of now is Agony by Yung Lean. They have finally obtained a pair of headphones which now allows them to listen to music all day long much to the dismay of their teachers. Their musical interest also expands to the creation of their Beatboxing Club, inspired by their favorite movie: Fight Club.  You can still find them doodling to their heart's content on every assignment and test. Their favorite dinosaur is the Ankylosaurus. Hoping to live somewhere on a scenic coastline, they turn their sights to beachside cities on both coasts of the U.S. As they try to overcome their senior year, they face several challenging classes. Tune in next time to see if they make it to graduation!
