A Writer at Heart

(Extracurricular Activities and Faith-Based Involvement, Class of 2020) Permanent link   All Posts
Wheeler Photo I have always loved writing! English and history were always my favorite subjects in high school, the various essays we would be assigned I considered to be a welcomed challenge and overall really fun. I oftentimes wrote for fun in high school, sometimes just recounting the events of the day, other times creating adventure-filled short stories purely for enjoyment. My senior year of high school, I wrote the daily paper for the student body (my first period was journalism and I was the only student in the class, so I had about an hour each day to create and distribute my school’s paper; my school had 95 students in total), so writing well and writing fast were skills I acquired VERY quickly. Once I discovered the Academy had a Cadet Blog Club, I was ecstatic. I couldn’t sign up for the club fast enough. I am eager to begin submitting monthly contributions about the Academy and all it has to offer! I remember being that high school student reading about all of the exciting activities at the Academy in the cadet spotlights on the Academy’s home page, now it feels almost surreal to be writing those articles myself.
