As I grew into my teenage years, my love for reading took a back burner, as my free time was taken up by school, work, and extra-curricular activities. I try to read and write when I get a chance, but it feels as though I don't even have time to think.
I try to read as often as I can because reading simply makes me happy. Reading fiction transports me to another world and life, without even taking me out of my bedroom. I love reading fiction works, but in terms of writing, I like to focus on nonfiction, or opinion articles. I've always been opinionated and headstrong, and this shows in my writing.
Even now that I'm over halfway through my time in high school, I'm not totally positive what career I want. I'm certain it will center around writing, and I've narrowed it down to something in the journalism field. I'm mostly torn between a career in broadcast journalism, or culinary and travel blogging.
I'm currently on both Blue Jay Journal TV and The Advocate Newspaper Staff at Washington High School. I love having these as opportunities to write more often and with more freedom that I would in a traditional English class.
I also hope I can continue to feed into my passion for literature, and I hope you all will get to read my memoir one day.
Until next time gang,
