I am an aspiring journalist and senior at Irvine High School in Orange County, California. I am the advertisement manager, feature page editor, staff writer and illustrator for the El Vaquero Newspaper. My work has been published in the school newspaper along with Redefy, a non-profit organization to bring about change through humanitarian and social advocacy rights. I have shadowed reporters at the Orange County Register, worked with the Los Angeles Times High School Insider and was a Youth Representative for the City of Irvine. I was also ranked second and was awarded with the Ralph and Millie Alexendar award at the California Scholastic Press Association workshop.
