Year: Sophomore

Role: Story Editor

High School: Lakota West High School

Bio: I’m the News Editor for The Northerner. I can’t wait to have an amazing semester, creating great content. I love writing, and I love to grow as a writer. Writing about myself feels awkward, so I apologize if this bio isn’t what you expected.

I’m an annual passholder at Walt Disney World, meaning I’m a huge Disney fan. “Mulan” is the best Disney movie–hands down. I’ve always been a sucker for a good novel. Books rock.

I love being able to meet new people through Journalism and share my passion for writing with others. I can’t wait to meet all of you this week, and I hope that you learn to love Journalism as much as I do. And maybe learn to write a better bio than me.


Favorite Social Media: My favorite social media app is Instagram. I love being able to post photos of mine that I think are “insta worthy” and it’s fun seeing what everyone else posts to their own feed.

Dream Job: My dream job is to be a travel writer/freelance Journalist. I have a desire to travel the world and see everything I can possibly see. Why not try to get paid for doing that?

Fun Fact: I have five cats. Four out of the five are named after foods/drinks.
