Hi! I am a junior and this is my first year in advanced journalism. I’m in the photography and graphics section of Sword and Shield, and so far I’ve had a great experience. Journalism has been a great place to explore different interests and try new things such as photography, editing, and graphic design. I have also been able to attend many more places and events than I usually would to take pictures, which has been very fun and has increased my involvement in many different things, as I like taking pictures for any topic or section. I enjoy the newspaper because its interesting and an authentic way to read about all sorts of different information going on around us, especially since it is written by our own peers.
