I joined the MATC Times in fall 2012. At first, I thought this was going to be a onetime thing. Just write a story for extra credit for journalism and that was it. But as time went on, I captured a love for writing for a school newspaper. I got to know Bob Hanson, Jim Nance, and the rest of the staff for the paper. Working for the paper has helped me grow as a writer. I’ve taken criticism really well for my stories and I used that criticism to make my writing even better.

I’m entering my third semester with the Times, and I’ve already went from a reporter to the Downtown Campus Editor (to think I’m only 19 years old). I’m one of the youngest staff members and I’m already a seasoned veteran. While I’m doing my best in my classes, I’m also giving it an A effort in the Times. My dream is to pursue a career in a journalist field. Whether it is working for the Journal Sentinel, or publishing a novel, I know working for the Times will help me reach that goal.

Although I may not look like the type, but I love to write. Whenever I have a story in mind, I try my best to get it down on paper and remember it. I know my writing can still get better. My time with the Times will be a huge benefit once I’m done. I am proud to say that I am a member of the Times. I am proud to have my writing published in their paper I am also proud to be the Downtown Campus Editor. So to all the member of the MATC Times, let’s keep up the good work and make this paper a lasting legacy.
