Kairi Hamm

Video Game Reviewer
My name is Kairi. I’m a 15-year-old sophomore who was born on St. Patrick’s day and wants the small job of a neurosurgeon. If that doesn’t work out I might play games as a profession since video games are pretty much the greatest thing since sliced bread. Unfortunately, nothing really interesting usually happens to me so I really don’t have much else to talk about. I’m a gamer, writer, and overall funny person. When I say that I’m a gamer, I mean that a large portion of my life is centered around a controller. I like to beat people who cheat constantly, just so I can rub it in when I do beat them. Now when I say I’m a writer, I mean that I’m someone who enjoys creating fake worlds to live in temporarily, to escape the outside world. I only like to write fantasy for some reason and have been writing since I was 8. Needless to say, when I was writing at 8 years old, It was absolutely terrible to have to read it out loud. Finally, to end it off, when I say I’m funny, I mean I make jokes…that’s it….
