Star Squad's Brecca Ridenour

Meet Brecca!

Star Squad's, Brecca is a 2018 senior at Helix Charter High School. Go Scotties! She describes herself as outgoing, helpful, dramatic, creative and always late. She told me her friends would say she is "loving, funny, extra, always widdit". At HCHS she is involved in ASB and track & field. She is also involved in Math Club, Key Club, MESA, Academic League, CSF and NHS.

Brecca is also an aerial silk artist. Think Cirque du Soleil. Aerial silk is a type of performance where artists perform aerial acrobatics while hanging from a fabric. Performers climb the suspended fabric without the use of safety lines, and rely only on their training and skill to ensure safety. They use the fabric to wrap, suspend, fall, swing, and spiral their bodies into and out of various positions. Wow!!

The photo of Brecca below was recently featured on @teenphotostylemagazin on Instagram as a candidate for their weekly magazine cover. The photo request was for the color green. The greenery in the background is nice, but Brecca's beautiful green eyes steal the show.
