I was thirsty, eager to quench my desire for more in life. Life at my school, the Mississippi School for Mathematics and Science (MSMS), does not allot me the time to work on my novels like my old school did. However, I cannot deprive myself of writing because it is an essential part of my identity; therefore, I joined The Vision.
Before coming to MSMS, I participated in clubs that highlighted other aspects of journalism. In middle school, I placed third in the state broadcasting competition for meteorology.
During high school, I took digital media technology for two years. I learned plenty about photography and videography, both being major parts of journalism. But nothing is more alluring than having the ability to type or write words to tell a story or express your opinion.
I am a senior from the small town of Port Gibson, Mississippi. I enjoy math, psychology, helping people, and looking at life from a very different perspective. However, my devout passion for writing-- from poems, books, and scripts to lab reports or articles-- trails as far back as first grade when I wrote my first short story.
Ever since then, I have found ways to use my words to tell stories, whether it's for pure entertainment or for the pursuit of the truth.
I plan on majoring in statistics and journalism with a concentration in Public Advocacy. After college, I aspire to become an in-depth reporter, an author, and an activist.
