Meet Azariah Boyd

“What other hobbies do I do? Oh, well, you’re asking a person who has no life, what other hobbies they have,” Sophomore Azariah Boyd said while she recalled all of her clubs and involvements at Millbrook. “I watch anime.”

Azariah is an active member of the Choir. She said, “It’s a really good experience. Our director (Mr. Kelly), has a really good work ethic.” She likes how they are able to learn new skills and songs but also have fun. She said that the choir is by far her favorite program at school, “Because it’s just so great.” She is also participating in the Drama Club’s production of Little Shop of Horrors as Skip Snip and a harlot in the ensemble. This past summer, she was also in Winchester Little Theatre.

Azariah is also a Type 1 Diabetic. One of the things that she likes most about high school is that she can carry her blood-glucose meter and insulin with her, so she doesn’t have to go to the nurse to administer them. “I have that certain independence,” she said. “At first, it was a little bit awkward. Because, one time, a principal came up to me as I was doing my insulin and was just like, ‘What are you doing, honey?’ And so, she assumed that I was taking some very bad drugs.”

Azariah is planning on going to the Homecoming dance in a dark blue lace dress. “I’m planning on going to Homecoming, dancing–well, maybe not dancing, because I can’t dance. But, yeah, I think it’s gonna be pretty fun.” However, she is most looking forward to going to Denny’s afterwards.
