My name is Katie Harston and I go to Judge Memorial. I am taking a class at my school called new media. I decided to join new media because I wanted to become a better writer and learn more about how to use a camera and videography. I was excited to try something new and giving the class a try. As a journalist I always want to see what other people’s thoughts and opinions are and to be able to express those.  

I enjoy listening to others and seeing what others opinions and thoughts are on certain issues. Because of my empathic thoughts towards the environment I feel like I can bring awareness about issues through journalism. I put in effort to being organized and on time. And I think I can use these skills with conducting my interviews.

I often wonder what the future will be like and what changes will be made to make the world a better place. But I have more questions about the near future. College is entering the picture and I often wonder about that transition. I would love the opportunity to interview Rosa Parks. I would ask her what inspired her to take a stand that day and what she thought it would be. Was it a plan to do what she did or a spur of the moment. I also have been working on a peice about students trying new sports and activities and in the future I want to  write about teen health and climate change.
