1: about the author | Gene Wilcox is a 9th grader at Oxford High School. He/she enjoys Hunting, Fishing and mud riding. When it comes to writing Gene likes to write about nothing because he doesn't like writing. Gene finds the most challenging part of writing to be the actual writing part. When Gene gets older, he hopes to become an underwater welder. His advice for students that will be entering the 9th grade next year is that you all need to try as hard as you can because if you don't, you will not succeed.
