I took journalism my freshman year and now I am an Assistant news editor. I started writing for my middle school newspaper and I fell in love with writing articles, so when I went to high school I knew I had to join the harbinger. Outside of school I love to read, play tennis, and spend time with my friends and family (especially my dog).
