The Central Trend

Jadelin Hinkel

Jadelin Hinkel, Staff Writer

Jadelin Hinkel is a junior entering her first year on staff. She tends to spend her time hanging out with friends, playing the clarinet and saxophone, longboarding, and helping out at her church. Throughout the summer, she explored all that Michigan has to offer with her friends and family while partaking in a ton of road trips. Jadelin hopes that writing on The Central Trend will help her pursue her dream of going into media communications and journalism.

The number of screens Jadelin has broken: Five screens and has gone through ten different phones 

Favorite holiday: She's been counting down the days till Christmas 

Hardest thing she accomplished this summer: She had to endure a three-hour-long class to receive her boaters license

Favorite video game: As of right now, she has been indulging in the game Webkinz World when she was bored in class with her best friend. Other than that she can’t choose a favorite, it changes all the time
