Looking back, my three favorite stories are easy for me to pick. I had a lot of great stories that I have worked on, but these three are near and dear to my heart.
#1. Life Skills. This story was so fun to work on and very important to me. I felt that our Special Education and Life Skills classes were so under represented and that nobody knew the time and dedication that went into all of them. To me, the story meant a chance to shine a light on a group of people who deserved it so much. On top of that, I felt a huge sense of accomplishment because it was the first story I did on my own. I went through the process flying solo and it was very successful.
#2. WHS Food Pantry. To me, this story idea jumped off the page of story topics. I discussed it with my group, and we took it and ran. I worked with Matthew and Zach on this one. We were all first-year students, and it was our first time working without a staff member who had been in the class before. That made things slightly challenging, but also very helpful. I feel that it was a chance for us to prove ourselves, and we rose to the occasion. Though the ride wasn’t smooth the whole way, it was a fun story to produce, and a great cause to support. I hope that at least one person saw that story and used the food pantry at school. That would mean the world to me.

Blue Jay Journal TV has been an eye-opening and gratifying experience. It was a lot of work and a lot of extra time, but our products were so great and moving. There is nothing I would change about my experience. I only wish I could have been in the class for more years than one.
