(Hilary Yosua)

Biographical sketch

Picture of Hilary.

When I was young, it was a fantastic and marvelous thing to tell people that I was left-handed. Well, I still get a thrill in being able to tell people that. But that’s beside the point. I was left-handed and in second grade my teacher tried to show me how to hold a pencil. Now, why is this a big deal? Because she showed me how to hold a pencil like a right-handed person would. I was offended! And I like to think that this is why I began to write, to prove her wrong. I like to think that anyway.

I’m going to fast-forward a bit…

When I was about twelve years old, my dad found this free HTML generator and a small tutorial that he printed out. With just instructions on how to make links and how to put a background on a page, I began to make web pages. And they really were web pages. It was a collection of pointless information and boring stuff about me. I deleted it soon after when I realized how dumb it really was. I gave up on the website idea for a while.

Speeding on up…

When I was fourteen I had an idea for a website. Inspired, I spent whole days on the computer and slowly created the Dragon Caverns, which is still running today. I also began to make computer graphics. I don’t boast to be as good as our fantastic artists here. I can do limited but impressive (sometimes) graphics if I get the inspiration.

At this time I also began playing for the high school tennis team, so yes! I do have a real life.

Fast-forward some more…

Last year (2000) my dad “employed” me to make a website for the company he worked for. I got paid below minimum wage, but I had fun anyway. The website, unfortunately, never got up because of some kind of business glitch. I think they may have moved the address of the website and lost the work or something.

Then that summer I went on something called “Field Studies”. This was a school trip that takes about twenty-eight students to a different place every year. You have to pay for each trip though, so I only went once last summer. We went to the West and saw these fantastic rock formations and even saw dinosaur tracks. We camped out and cooked our own meals. It was an experience I’ll never forget!
