the Crusader

Sofia Murillo, Features Editor

I am a senior this 2022-2023 school year at Bonita Vista High and a first year Features Editor for the Crusader. Although I have always loved writing, I joined the Crusader to explore working in a different environment that will push me out of my comfort zone and help improve my writing skills when it comes to relevant and to the point pieces. Through my experience with the Crusader I hope to not only learn more about my strengths and weaknesses but also involve myself and learn more about the community around me. I asked myself why I didn’t join the Crusader earlier, but as I focus on the present it is my goal to make the best out of this year and be a trustworthy leader to my peers and community to the very end. I am very excited for what this year has to offer! 

I highly encourage you to follow my insta: @sofia.crusader
