CooperCooper Keimig

10th grader Cooper introduces himself in the following manner: “My name is Cooper Keimig (aka: CoopDizzle). I am a character. If you’ve ever seen me in front of a crowd you’d know that. I have more teacher friends then I have real friends. I like to have fun and I don’t mind being embarrassed, and if I have a chance to make someone laugh, I’ll take it. On the other side, I am a rapper, the Best In The Quad Cities, I think. I am Shakespeare on the words and DJ Mustard on the beat. Check out my YouTube channel @OmgItzFrosty and my snapchat @brutiskeimig  #WatchOut4CoopDizzle”

She loves her car because she can blast her music however loud she wants because music, more importantly “The Weeknd” (Abel Tesfaye), is her life. “If it ain’t XO then it gotta go”. She’s a partier and never in the house sleeping when she should be, like the night before this picture was taken! Oops.
