Tell Me Somethin’ Good

Trenton Watkins is a sophomore this year at Dewey High School. Outside of school, he is a part of Run the Streets, which is a 12 week youth/adult running program that help delinquents get a second chance in the real world, but also there are some children that like to run the program for fun. By the end of the 12th week, they run a half marathon which is 13.1 miles! Trenton is starting his 7th season of Run the Streets. “It is like a place that is almost family-like, but sometimes drama can occur making it less fun, but otherwise great,” Trenton told us. 


Since he’s started high school, he has become a lot more confident in who he is by not letting people’s opinions matter to him. “I’ve also become a lot more outgoing and gained more friends,” he said. Something he’d like to learn is photography, but he’d rather learn more about editing pictures. A show he would recommend to someone is “The Act”. “It’s a show on Hulu and it’s setup almost like a documentary; showcasing the life of Gypsy Rose Blanchard and how her mother faked most of Gypsy’s medical needs,” he explained. “It’s actually based on a true story, which is insane considering what happens. For anyone who hasn’t seen it, I surely recommend it.” Something he would like to change about school is the way people see stereotypes. I’m society, people are placed in categories based on their appearance, friends, activities, etc. “It’s not really fair to people to be seen one way, especially when they aren’t.”
