Renton High School’s Hannah Malkin, soccer, was selected as the Renton Reporter’s Female Athlete of the Week for Oct. 5.
Q: What is your favorite subject in school?
A: I really enjoy math and language arts. I find them both therapeutic — math in that this huge complicated thing becomes simple and language arts because you can make even the tiniest things complex.
Q: What other activities do you participate in?
A: I love baking, reading, collecting books and writing poetry.
Q: Person who has helped you succeed the most?
A: Probably my parents — I’m very close to them and they have supported in my commitment to soccer and everything else.
Q: Do you have a pre- or post-game tradition? What is it?
A: No matter the outcome, the girls and I always blast music on the bus home after away games.
Q: Song you currently can’t get enough of?
A: “goodnight n go” by Ariana Grande and “I Don’t Want To Know” by Fleetwood Mac
