Builders Club recognizes member Daizie Johnson

Gretchen Mensink Lovejoy

The Kingsland Builders Club has chosen Daizie Johnson as its January Builders Club Member of the Month.  She is the daughter of Sarah and Dustin Johnson of Spring Valley. 

The Kingsland seventh grader is active in volleyball and softball, and her past extracurricular activities include basketball, as well as one-act play.  Her favorite activity is volleyball, she noted, adding that she most enjoys her math classes but does not like social studies.  

She spends her spare time drawing, reading, acting and watching movies. 

“I like to draw and act in my spare time, and ‘Wonder’ is my favorite book because it’s a heartwarming book.  I like ‘Mean Girls’ because it’s a good movie,” she said about her preferences.  “I listen to any type of music, and I think that cheese sticks and mushrooms are gross.  If I could travel to any country in the world, I’d go to Australia because it’s a really cool place, and if I could go to any state, I’d go to California because it’s warm there.”    

The 12-year-old most admires other thespians — Dylan Minnette, Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse who “are really good actors.” 

If she could do one thing to change the world, she’d provide shelter for everyone on it.  “I would give all homeless people houses to help the homeless,” she said.

She aspires to do something artistic after she graduates from high school, something that leaves its mark on people.  “I wanted to be an artist when I was a little kid,” she said.  “I want to grow up to be a tattoo artist because I like art.”

The Builders Club, Kiwanis’s junior high school chapter, honored Johnson during a recent club meeting.
