the Crusader

Nadia Martinez, Podcast Manager

I am a senior at Bonita Vista High and this is my second year on staff. I’ve always liked how unbiased and informative the crusader was and it was a large part of why I joined. Newspaper has taught me what ethical journalism looks like and I am proud to be a part of an organization that represents those ideals. I am also a member of Speech and debate, mock trial, as well as an IB diploma candidate.
