Angel Beltran, A&E Supervisor

Hello! I’m Angel. I’m a junior and it is my second year on the staff. I’d tell what I do after school, but I
have no life outside of band. That may sound sad, but I really love being a part of the band, specifically
part of the color guard. I love to write almost anything whether it be a short fiction story or news. If you
happen to catch me in my free time, then I’m probably listening to music or talking about music.

Tania Diaz de Leon, Reporter

I was born on December 23, 2000. I have a great passion for reading and writing. I love the way people have with words and live for moments of excitement. I adore my friends and family for their support and their kindness. I like to sing and play the acoustic guitar and I love making music. I love cinematography and the way films tell stories. We are all linked together by music and stories that we relate to. I enjoy hiking and telling jokes as I have been told I have a way with comedy. I love doing many different things and I love exploring new hobbies. Most importantly I love to write though. I find the need to write and to tell stories as well as interpreting the world. I love watching movies and I enjoy going out to look for adventure.
