Senior Stories: Jillian Turner

The future is wide open for Jillian! Her “realistic” goal is to become a high school English teacher. However, she dreams of becoming a writer or an actor, preferably in musical theater. “I’ve had a dream to become an author since elementary school and it has stuck with me ever since.” Even though her dreams of becoming an actor are more recent, she says she would still “drop everything to be on Broadway.” 

Jillian has participated in a lot of different extracurricular activities like swimming, track and golf, but the one that really stuck was theatre. “I love love love theatre. Performing on stage is so much fun and everyone in the program is so funny and amazing,” she explained. “We all have a great time together and I’ll be sad to leave it when I graduate.” During her free time, Jillian loves baking, shopping, watching movies and hanging out with her friends. 

Her advice to freshmen is to not be afraid. “There is nothing to stress about. I remember being so anxious and terrified to start high school, but there is nothing to be worried about. You may get lost the first couple of days, but I promise you will make it through,” she said. “Also, it is nothing like the movies, so don’t get your hopes up too high.”

Over the next few years, keep an eye on your TVs for Jillian and her sister, who love to watch the Amazing Race together and have thought about signing up to be on the show. “We argue over who would be best for each challenge or what we would do differently from the actual contestants,” said Jillian. “We try to decide if we would win. Of course, we think we would.”

Jillian will be attending the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a double major in English and journalism. Then, she plans to get her secondary education teaching license and eventually a master’s in education.
