Senior Spotlight: Hannah O

She’s a musician. She’s a poet. She’s a chronic singer of the Oompa Loompa song. She’s a mystery.

In this article I’ll be answering a timeless question: Who is Hannah O? Through a series of carefully crafted questions, I will uncover the truth behind Magnet’s greatest enigma. Join me as I delve into previously unexplored territory: Hannah’s conscience.

It’s rumored that you’ve changed a lot in your lifetime. Tell me about your childhood self.

When I was zero years old, my mother gave birth to me in the Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, Florida. Since then, I have turned seventeen years old. I used to have glasses. I also used to be really uptight, and though I still am secretly very uptight, I take drugs to mediate it.

How have you changed, and what caused that change?

I lost my glasses because an unnamed friend, who I will call “Taime Trey,” texted me and pretended to be the guy I liked in the seventh grade, which made me feel like I was too nerdy for anyone to like me and I had to change. Aside from my glasses, I also lost any sort of filter because I just stopped caring.

What sparked your interest in music?

I’ve been into music since I was three, so I don’t really remember.

Tell me about your new band, “Honna.”

We are a jazz-indie-alt group with an EP, “Baby,” coming out on March 22nd. We are playing at the Atlanta Cherry Blossom Festival on March 30th. We will be on all streaming platforms, including Spotify!

Where are you going to college? Why did you pick that college?

I’m going to Berklee College of Music in Boston and I chose it because I love music and the campus. I also went to camp there twice, which furthered my interest in the school.

What are your plans after college?

Hopefully, I will be a musical manager for other artists.

What would your ideal future look like in regards to your musical career?

I would be managing a bunch of artists and I’d book venues for them to do what they love to do. I’d also like to be rich.

What is your favorite memory and why?

My favorite memory is when this boy, Damon, was at my house for band practice. He left, and five minutes later, he knocked on my door again with two bulldogs next to him. The bulldogs ran into my house and attacked my dog, Baker. There was a lot of screaming and it was very funny.

If you had a $1,000,000 for one day, what would you do with it? (Note: you can’t return it.)

I would buy a trampoline. I would also get my grandma one of those bikes that you can lean back on—kind of like a tricycle, since she can’t ride a regular bike. I’d also get my cousins a really, seriously good fishtank.

Describe yourself in three words. 

Apple, dinosaur, cloud.

How do you come up with such original songs and poems? Do you have a specific muse?

I just write what’s in my head.

Why do you constantly sing the Oompa Loompa song?

It’s not that I like it—I really don’t like it that much, though it is a well-written song. It’s just always stuck in my head.

That’s all Raptors, thanks for tuning in to another one of my infamous interviews! I hope you got to know the mysterious Hannah O a bit better, though that is doubtful seeing her ambiguous answers to even the most straightforward of questions.
