Im a Junior at South Mountain High-school , i've been on the school newspaper for two years. I also ran track for two years, i'm a member of National Honors Society and participate in many extra-curricular activities. I enjoy writing for the school newspaper because it's a way for me to express my feelings on certain topics. My best story was on child abuse and it earned best story in our winter edition of the Southwinds Newspaper magazine in 2015. I also have written an entertainment story that received many compliments, because of my ability to write descriptively. I love the environment of the news room, because as reporters we have to work  cohesively with each other and we all work very well together. I have learned many real life skills in newspaper that have been very useful to me throughout high-school.
