Laila Kennedy
A balancing act.

73.181.211.204

Her first year, unsure that she would have been able to handle the responsibility while acclimating to the new world she had been thrust into, Laila hadnít signed up for the library helper program. Her second year Laila had also let the ball drop and her third year she had just started intermediates and was worried about completing her coursework and handling the responsibilities of the library helper program. However, now that she was starting her second year of intermediates felt more confident. It was true that she was going to sign up for all her usual clubs and was leading two clubs (one with assistance from Gia and the other a partnership with Tess) and that Spirit Club was going to be really hard to balance with her other duties, but helping in the library was something that Laila thought would be fun and so she wanted to do it.

It was due to her long list of extra-curriculars (who would have even thought a boarding school could offer so many Ďafter schoolí programs?) that Laila wrote her name down for Library Assistant versus simply Library Monitor like the other fourth years were likely to do. Laila didnít want to jump into for the first time expecting to be a leader simply because of her age and besides, she needed to know if she could balance all of her work or not. When she was an Advanced student she would be able to drop a couple classes if she wanted to (she was already considering dropping either Defence or Transfiguration but she wasnít sure, she kind of wanted to keep them all), but until then she would have to manage a full load plus activities.

Laila Kennedy, 4th year, Library Assistant

Laila wrote her name on the list after John Umlandís, the host of the book club, and wondered when the first meeting would be. She couldnít wait to share her newest obsession with them, they were sure to appreciate it! She hurried off to find Professor Xavier in the gardens, there was about an hour left until dinner ended and she had a couple questions for him regarding their last lesson.
