With hobbies like piano and knowing three different languages, Samuel Maksimov, freshman, has a lot on his platter for his first year at high school.

Coming from a Russian household, Maksimov speaks both Russian and English fluently, and is currently learning Spanish.

 “I learned Russian first be1cause that was what was spoken in my house,” Maksimov said. “I learned English through my brother and school.”

Other hobbies of his are playing video games, the piano, baritone and playing basketball. He also like listens to jazz and to people such as Yanni, a famous pianist and composer.

Along with his favorite hobbies, Maksimov visited multiple places around Oregon, including Kah-Nee-Ta, which was his favorite. His least favorite part was when had to stay at home and didn't go outside.When he was stuck at home, he would watch “Family Guy,” “South Park” and “American Dad.”

 Maksimov is most looking forward to earning good grades and being able to meet new teachers and friends. The articles that he is hoping to write are articles that are “something interesting, something that's happening.” He believes his writing ability, organization and people skills will help him rise to the top.
