Hay Lin is something of a free spirit: she's very absent-minded, but at the same time extremely creative and talented. She loves to draw, paint, and sketch. It is no surprise that her favorite subject in school is art. She has a sense of humor rivaling that of Irma's. She can be considered a slight comic-alien geek at heart because of her love to collect comics and alien collectables. She enjoys just about anything related to science fiction, air, or art. Despite this, Hay Lin is not superb at Physical Education, as shown when she herself once says she shall need to get into shape after running.
