I, Melanie, am a grade 12 journalism student at Waterloo Collegiate Institute. I strive to produce high quality work in an effort to constantly push myself to achieve more. The goal of this site is to showcase my work over the course of several months, and to understand the profound concept of journalism. My personal goals include, learning more about writing and how I can be as effective as possible, learning how to take high quality, crisp photos, and increasing my knowledge of ongoing world issues. In my spare time I enjoy swimming, playing tennis, dancing, reading, listening to music, working, and spending time with my friends and family. I also participate in many school activities such as the arts show “Concept”, the tennis team, the business club DECA, and much more.
