From the vault, here’s some vintage Gazette! This interview was written by camper Captain (long time camper and ATL in 2008) in Strings’ first year as staff, circa 2003.

Strings is my tribe leader. She got her name because she plays the violin. She’s been playing the violin since she was 9 and has been playing for seven years. She accepted Jesus when she was at VBS (Vacation Bible School). She wanted to become a tribe leader last year, when Speedy asked her, but she had other plans. This year, when Twister asked her, she said “yes.”
She has never been to Israel because she never had the chance to go. Her favorite color is burgundy. Her favorite animal is a dugong which is like a manatee except it lives in the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean. She was on the swim team from ages 8 to 12, but she likes to watch baseball even though she doesn’t really like sports. She went to Junior Camp twice, Teen Camp twice, and Adventure Camp once. Her favorite kind of music is classical and she has about 10 Veggie Tale movies.
The reason I like Strings is because she’s kind, encouraging and holds our tribe together.
