I am honored and grateful to be nominated for the Journalism Education Association's 2023 Massachusetts High School Journalist of the Year. My work as a co-Editor-in-Chief of Denebola, Newton South High School's Official Online Newspaper, has been enriched by the work of my co-editors, our advisor Samuel Lee, and our amazing staff.
In many ways, Denebola and journalism have been my entry point to the Newton South community. Arriving at South from a small, private K-8 school, the community at Denebola was a major building block of my social integration. In addition, writing articles and taking photographs as an underclassperson allowed me, as journalism should, to investigate and learn about my new surroundings. As a leader over the last two years, I have focused on broadening the Denebola community to include a wider and more diverse range of voices and to reach more readers.
I hope you enjoy my portfolio as much as I enjoyed creating it!
