Student spotlight: Kavi Hook

Dekavianna (Kavi) Jazerika Hook was born in San Antonio, Texas on December 27, 2002 at 11:58 a.m weighing 9 lbs and 5 oz. She first went to elementary school at age five at Galen R. Elolf. Then went to Elaine S. Schlather Intermediate, then to Frank J Dobie Jr. High, and next year she will go to Byron P Steele High School.


In third grade, Kavi learned that she had a learning disability called dyslexia. It’s a disorder that involves difficulty in learning to read or interpret words, letters, and symbols. “I didn’t know how to feel. I didn’t really understand what it was until I got older, but it’s not that hard to cope with,” said Hook.


When Kavi was in sixth grade she met her best friend Bailey Hinkle. They met at a neighborhood event game called the ‘Splash Pad’. “One time we ordered Chinese food and when the delivery guy came, I locked Bailey out of her own house,” said Hook. When asked how close they are, Kavi replied with “We’re pretty much sisters.”


One of Kavi’s many talents is that she’s a self taught dancer. She’s been dancing since she was 4 years old. She’s always been interested in dancing. She is going to try out for the Excalibur Hip-Hop team at Steele High School next year.“Me and my cousin both love to dance and we made dances together. We called ourselves the Excaliburs like Steele’s Hip-Hop dance team,” said Hook. Dancing isn’t Kavi’s only talent though.


Kavi plays tennis for Dobie Jr. High. She’s been playing for five years.”The tennis coach asked me if I wanted to try out because they didn’t have enough girls so I did and I made the team,” said Hook.


She lives with her three siblings, mom, and step-dad. Her sister is named Dejalícia Hook and her two brothers are named Daveon Hook, and D’ovonni Hamilton. The oldest is D’ovonni, then Dejalícia, then Kavi, then Daveon. “My favorite thing to do with my siblings was playing hide and go seek tag,” said Hook.


After high school, Kavi wants to go to Texas A&M University for her Doctorate degree to become a doctor. After college, Kavi also wants to be a dance choreographer. “I want to be a doctor to help people and a dance choreographer because I’ve always had a passion for dancing and want to teach other people how to dance,” said Hook.
