FOCUS

Anna Blackburn, News Staff Reporter

Hello! I’m Anna and I’m a junior this year. This is my second year on the FOCUS. I’m also in Best Buddies, Environmental Club, Falcon Web Radio, World Ambassadors, German National Honor Society, Key Club, and Creative Writing Club. My main goal throughout all of the clubs I’m in is to make a difference- whether that be saving a strawberry plant or making someone’s day. I also just want to have fun! Simply being a part of something makes all of the time dedication worth it. I joined the FOCUS for these reasons as well, but also because I wanted to push myself out of my comfort zone and leave the box I’ve stayed in my entire life. The FOCUS has really done this for me and allowed me to explore interests of mine I never thought would be possible before. It’s also helped me become a lot more comfortable speaking and collaborating with my peers. I’ve always had an interest in the things happening around me, so this year I’d like to work a lot within the community beat. I would also like to write about world news and breaking news because I think it’s important for everyone to be informed about what is happening around the world. Along with these, I’m hoping to collaborate within our feature and profile beats as well because I would like to highlight some of the people doing a lot for our school that aren’t being talked about enough. The environment is also a strong passion of mine so I hope to be able to focus on that too.
