Katie Walter loves music even though her ankle has been known to suffer from it.
That’s what happened while she was attending concert in Chicago, when not a minute into the arena, she severely sprained her ankle.
“That didn’t stop me,” said Walter.
Walter stayed for the entire concert, despite her protesting ankle.
“I had a great spot,” said Walter. “I just couldn’t leave.”
She regularly attends concert, including the Lollapalooza Music Festival in Chicago last August. In 2010, Walter got the chance to meet her favorite singer, Julian Casablancas. Because of her principles, Walter decided against it. “My cousin and I talked about how you don’t meet the people you look up to because you feel disappointed after meeting them,” Walter said. “You never look at them the same way again.” Walter admits she was bummed at the time, but doesn’t regret her decision. “Either way, I wasn’t disappointed.”
Her passion of music and movies has led her to the direction of journalism. After college, she hopes to become a film critic.
