Introducing our incredible Youth Blog Editor team for the Spring:
Hi! I’m Jackie (she/her), and I’m a returning youth blog editor for South End Stories. I’m a sophomore at Garfield High School, where I’m starting a new role as a writer for the student newspaper. I’m passionate about community organizing, and have interned for local political campaigns this past election cycle. I hope to contribute more to the blog and ride along for whichever direction it takes!
Hello! My name is Harmony Grace and I'm currently a junior in high school as well as a running start college freshman. Something that I really like to do is explore art. I like to sketch, make digital art, and paint occasionally. I also like being involved in my community, which is why I'm elevating the student voice in my school district and why I will be on my city's advisory committee. I enjoy writing my thoughts and journaling whenever I get inspiration, the inspiration moment is my all-time favorite thing about writing. I'm excited to get to know everyone in the Youth Blog and be able to create something together!
