This internship began when I was only sixteen and a junior at the Napavine High School. I was a shy and timid student, working on my school projects and studying in my spare time. I had to step out of my comfort zone to interview students and staff, and travel to school activities. Inevitably, I grew to like the spontaneity and adventure the Town Crier Newspaper provides. I have been granted countless opportunities to meet new people and most importantly, experiment with creative writing.
My last high school years have been filled with writing pertaining to special individuals, experiences, and interesting events. I've covered a wide range of topics, from athletes to Homecoming 2018. I was able to provide an inclusive platform for my peers and the Napavine community. The Town Crier Newspaper taught me how to be socially aware, supportive, and active within a scholarly environment. I intend on using these skills to further my career and social life in the future.
Currently, I'm preparing to graduate from the Napavine High School. I built up enough confidence, thanks to this internship, to take a risk and apply to the University of Washington. I've been accepted and I'll be moving to Seattle in the summer. My end goal is to receive a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry. I'll be advancing towards the medical field within the next ten years to become a specialist physician.
Lastly, I would like to thank every single member in the community, who has contributed and read my weekly articles. The immense amount of support for my journalism, thoughts, and ideas has improved my ability to comprehend people and interact with my community. So I thank you with all my heart, for just taking the time to read my work.
