Belle Valiulis. A modern woman of many skills and talents is arguably the Academic Magnet’s most interesting senior. She moved to the state of South Carolina after growing up in Rockford, Illinois and after four years in our great state she has accomplished almost every feat known to man and has made waves in more fields than I even knew existed. She is a four year alumni of the AMHS swim team and she has volunteered at countless organizations such as Birds of Prey, Charlestowne Landing, the Children’s Museum, and a Cat Shelter. In addition to these accomplishments, she is also a local food expert and has earned this title through both being a vegan and by working at a Charleston hot spot restaurant. She loves protecting the environment and spending time with her cat Ginger and is attending the University of Glasgow in Scotland next year.

I asked a magnet freshman how it felt to go to school with such a legend and she said

“I don’t really know her that well””
