    • Hailey, this is a really interesting topic. The nature-versus-nurture debate is always a hot topic, and the easiest way to test that is through twin studies. The most fascinating cases happen when twins are separated at birth and then reunited much later in life, and they discover they have a lot of the same interests even though they spent none of their life together. You might find this article helpful: https://www.livescience.com/47288-twin-study-importance-of-genetics.html. I look forward to reading more about this from you in the future.

    • Hailey, thank you for sharing! This is such an interesting topic to me as for ma y others I am sure. Being a twin myself, it is very interesting to hear your take on this. People assume all twins are similar/the same, however life changes people and they actually end up being very different. As an example, my twin brother and I are very different people, but we are still twins. Good job!

    • Hailey,
      I think your post is very informative. I have always been interested in twins and sibling relationships as well as if twins had higher intuition in communication amongst their siblings. I thought that the portion describing how a baby develops inside the womb, especially if there are twins, is fascinating and kind of creepy. I have heard many stories of how aggressive the womb can be or when a twin disappears. This disappearance of the twin is called Vanishing Twin Syndrome. One website I found typically interesting on this matter is, http://americanpregnancy.org/multiples/vanishing-twin-syndrome/. Thanks for your post.

    • Hailey,
      I really enjoyed reading your post about twins! I think it is so cool how their genes can lead them to have such similar ives outside of being nurtured the same. It was crazy to see how twins separated at birth could have so much in common. I really enjoy always hearing from different people about the bond between twins, and I think that’s so cool. Here is a website link in case you wanna take a look: https://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/03/24/twin-facts_n_4959012.html
      Again thank you so much for sharing!

    • Hailey,
      I really enjoyed reading your article, even though it was about a very serious issue. I live in a suburb in Michigan and I never have dealt with smog or even pollution. Im suprised that lessening the speed limit by 10 MPH would help the pollution that much. I always thought that pollution is the worst when there are major traffic jams and there are hundreds of cars jam packed into one area. Am I thinking correctly as well in saying that?

    • Hailey, you took this down a path I didn’t expect, and I loved it. Who knew reading fiction was beneficial. “When we read about other people, we can imagine ourselves into their position and we can imagine it’s like being that person…That enables us to better understand people, better cooperate with them.” (https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/speaking-of-science/wp/2016/07/22/does-reading-fiction-make-you-a-better-person/?utm_term=.393ffbd88642) It makes sense actually. Gut wrenching stories cause me to cry, even if they aren’t actually all that sad. I connect more with book characters than movie characters, which I think is interesting. Is it because you aren’t actively moving the story forward by reading it? I’m not sure, but this whole thing is interesting, so thank you for posting!

    • Hailey,
      the way you took this piece was very interesting. I has no idea that reading could be linked to empathy and the more fictional books someone reads the more empathetic they are. It makes sense though, you learn from the things you reader experience; so if a character in a novel is empathetic it is more likely for someone reading it to act in a similar way when faced with a similar situation. Book and literature really serve as a model for us, whether it be “brave new world” telling us to be careful or our society will turn out this way to “the power of one” that serves as a coming of age novel. I think when we read we are able to be more connected with the characters than if we watch an actor portray someone in a movie. I found this extremely interesting, thanks for posting.

    • Hi Hailey!! First off I want to say that your article is so inspiring! I think it’s awesome you spent this much time finding something you’re truly passionate about and helping others. It’s really incredible you have found what makes you happy. I think it’s also really important to discover and identify our passions early in life. They help us find what fulfills our dreams and goals in life. I found this website on the importance of identifying passions. (https://www.pickthebrain.com/blog/5-reasons-finding-passion-important/) It relates to your article because you discuss finding passions. I’m so happy I came across your article. I hope you continue with the ski program!
