Alanna Dye

Alanna Dye, Reporter

Alanna Dye was born on December 20, 2008. She is 14 years old while starting as a freshman at Tracy High School. She recently moved here in June of 2023 from Victorville, CA. Dye is a honest and trustworthy student, overcoming any obstacle in her life. She is a hard worker but has a bad habit of procrastinating. Dye comes from a family of 11 kids, with four being half-blood and the rest being step siblings. She has a lot of responsibilities including schoolwork, chores, homework and making sure her family is stable. Being the oldest sibling only puts more on her shoulders. All of this made her into a major overthinker, questioning everything and barely trusting anyone. Regardless, Dye is a very creative person. She loves drawing, writing, reading, playing the guitar and singing. Dye continues to learn how to play the guitar and to sing in hopes of becoming a musician. Her biggest inspirations in life are her two favorite music artists, Tokio Hotel and Billie Eilish. Her singing is self-taught, starting in 2018 with Billie Eilish’s songs "Ocean Eyes" and "Idontwannabeyouanymore". She started learning guitar in eighth grade, causing her to not know many songs or chords yet. Her love for Tokio Hotel is excessive, but her reason is understandable. She found Tokio Hotel at a very low point in her life. Their music encouraged her to keep going and never give up, no matter what. Dye is a Chemehuevi tribal member, one of the only native tribes in California. She partially owns the Colorado river through Arizona, more commonly known as Lake Havasu, a common spring break destination. If you know her, you know she isn’t available after school. She tends to take a nap with any free time she has, but it often messes with her sleeping schedule.
