Throughout my career at the West Forsyth Zephyr, I wrote the Opinion and News features. I served as the Opinion Editor during the 2017-2018 school year and was Editor-in-Chief during the 2018-2019 school year. In 2017, I was recognized by the North Carolina Scholastic Media Association for excellence in opinion writing.
My portfolio from my time at the Zephyr can be found here.
I also hosted a small web series for the Zephyr, called “Through the Breezeway,” which allowed me to poll the student body on a wide variety of topics. We covered everything from the best Christmas carols to thoughts on presidential candidates. The series was part of an initiative to transition the paper into the digital realm.
As a journalism major, I hope to continue to expand my skills and to one day cover the political world.
