Hi, my name is Makayla Richardson. I am 17 years old and a senior at Ayala. I created the club in order to give people who want to either build their writing skills or become a journalist to have a place where their voices can be heard. I will be attending Northern Arizona University in the fall to major in journalism and I wanted to build up my experience before leaving as well. I’m so excited to write about all of the students at our school who do not get recognized under normal circumstances. Learning about the vast individuality and diversity at this school is going to give myself and anyone who reads our newspaper a way to see the true, unique colors of our school. One fun fact about me is that I am a sucker for all things vintage and I own an original copy of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol!
