Loretta S.

CEO of Using Parentheses


"Quick whats my favorite hospital food?" Jello! I'm Loretta. (If you understood the reference then we can be friends.) I am in 11th grade and I go to Humphreys High School. I am the daughter of a Navy Chief (almost retired) and my family has mainly been stationed in the U.S.A or Asia. I currently live at Camp Humphreys, South Korea and this is my second time living overseas, the first being Misawa, Japan. I love to listen to music (no specific genre), swim, and binge sit-coms on Netflix. Some of my favorites are Modern Family and Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
