Meet Zhy'yon Hoover! We got to ask Zhy'yon a few questions and learn more about her. If you want to be featured on our blog, email firstname.lastname@example.org or DM us @onsameside!
What issue are you most passionate about?
I am most passionate about the state of racial equality in America. I support movements like #BLACKLIVESMATTER whole-heartedly.
What song gets you pumped and ready to save the world?
The song that gets me pumped is Eastside by Khalid and Halsey. The beat and lyrics get me moving and keep me inspired.
What you want others to know about you that they might not?
I want people to know that I am the founder of a website called WhispersFromUnder that discusses the world from my point of view and offers my own political insight.
If you could pick one person (living or dead) to have dinner with, who would it be?
If I could have dinner with one person, it’d be Aaliyah Houghton because she is an inspiration to me. I think that she died entirely too soon.
What gets you up in the morning?
In the morning, I think of seeing a new day. I love to see what I’m going to experience that day.
Coffee or tea? Cats or dogs?
Definitely coffee. I am totally a dog person.
Anything else we should know about you?
I am a poet and a writer. I’m terrible at drawing! I work with special ed students in a PE class that I’m in, and I’ve found out a lot about the things they struggle with daily and it makes me more sensitive to their needs.
