I am a senior at Bonita Vista High School and this is my first year on staff. This year I am one of the Opinion Copy Editors for The Crusader. I joined newspaper because I have always wanted to get involved within my school's community. Furthermore, I wanted to meet new people from my school's community and build relationships. I hope to make a great impact for The Crusader and help make great edits for my peers’ articles!
