Haley is an over-acheiver. She is head Cheerio, is on the top of the honors roll, and now she feels she needs to prove she can be leader of New Directions. She is very honest and will tell you exactly what she thinks of you, which causes students to talk about her behind her back.
"New Year, New Directions"- Haley auditions for New Directions with the song "Breathless". She makes it in, but is upset with Tina for getting the co-leader position.
