the Crusader

Efren Mendieta
Hello, I’m currently a senior at BVH and this is my second year on staff and I originally joined in order to expand on my writing ability. I can honestly say this publication has changed my life. I was properly introduced to journalism in the best way possible, by participating in the effort that goes into an issue. Although it can be tiresome I gained a huge amount of respect for journalism and the impact that it can have. The Crusader has not only contributed to my improvement as a writer but it has also helped me learn more about my school in the process. I’ve been able to discover various ways to tell a compelling story whether that be from articles, photography, or videography.
