Writing has always been a passion of mine. I got started with journalism at a young age when I participated in a WITS summer program that peaked my interest. Since then, I have had the opportunity to be on my school’s newspaper, the Three Penny Press, as an Editor-in-Chief. I am currently a junior at Bellaire High School. Bellaire High School provides a unique perspective towards things not only because of the diversity, but also because of the largeness of the school. I play on my school’s varsity lacrosse team and also enjoy running in my free time. I am an animal lover and have a rescue dog of my own named Koda, who is a fun-loving dog that still acts like a puppy. I am an active participant in the volunteering community, especially through Best Buddies, a school club that provides friendship to students with developmental disabilities. When school is not in session, I am traveling the world with my family. My favorite destination so far, has been Vienna, Austria.
