Cielo Muniz Sigala, News Editor

I am a sophomore and am currently the News Editor for the student-run newspaper publication, the Crusader and previously worked as an Opinion Editor. I initially joined journalism due to an outside influence, but as I began to experience the classroom environment, I soon grew to love it. Throughout last year, I loved working and meeting new people within the community that made class more exciting. Journalism also developed my passion in being able to inform the community about crucial events that take place and affect everyone. Newspaper also has an impact on my growth as a person, allowing me to enhance my creative and leadership skills. Outside of the Crusader, I participate in Mock Trial, Engineering Club and MECHA Club.
