Meet the Editors!

Editor in Chief

You, yes you! Do you find yourself bored and in need of company? Do you cry at night knowing that you’ll never know the experience of owning a 40 pound wheel of cheese? Do you crave the validation and attention of others because you grew up with several siblings? Then you are most likely named Alexander Silva. Hi there I’m Alexander Diego Silva, and I enjoy a wide variety of hobbies, such as gaming, acting, and crying. I do enjoy a wide variety of games that I have played throughout my entire life, such as Halo, Phasmophobia, and Inscryption. I do enjoy the fast paced action of Apex and COD, but slowing down with a game of Griftlands is very relaxing (it's a card game). I’ve also always wanted to dabble in acting or VA. I grew up watching Tomska and Eddsworld and I always had an amazing laugh with these short yet fabulous videos. I wanted to create something of my own similar to their creative style and it's something I've wanted to do ever since I watched their first video.

Junior Editor in Chief

My name is Lilyanna. I am the Junior Editor in Chief. I am a senior at Manzano right now. I love to sing and spend time with my family and friends. I spent my free time reading and singing most of the time. I have 4 sisters and 1 brother. I like to garden, bake and cook for my younger siblings, family, and friends. My favorite colors are purple and neon green. I plan on going to college for music or nursing after high school. I plan on going to New Mexico for college. I am super afraid of spiders and bugs. My favorite animals are butterflies and giraffes.

I like to help others and volunteer where I can and when I can. I love to help students who need help in some other classes if they are having a hard time. I believe that a high school diploma is better than a GED. School is important to me and so is my family. One thing I could not live without that is not my family is music and books. If I didn't have music I would go crazy. If I didn't have books I would not be happy. My favorite song is "I Have Nothing" by Whitney Houston because I like her voice and I like the armament of the song and the vocal range.

Design Chair

Thank you, Commissioner Gordon, people of Gotham. People often ask me, Jason, how do you do it? I'll tell you, I genuinely enjoy editing and being the design chair for the Pawprint team. Hallo, I'm Jason Sanchez, and I'm currently a senior and enjoy a variety of hobbies. I enjoy playing games such as Pokemon, Minecraft, Splatoon 2, etc,. I also enjoy the self loathing activity of binging shows on tv or watching from my phone on my bed. A recent example of this was when I finished rewatching the first two seasons of Daredevil in a week and a half. Even after all that I still have time to take part in programs at Manzano such as Track & Field, Soccer, and Model UN. I’m doing well off in an academic standpoint as I always finish my classes with A’s and B’s. I’m rarely at school but if you see me you’ll most likely see me drive in my “mom car”. Anyways on a separate note. I think America should have a purge night… Let me explain why.

Photography Chair

Hello, my name is Lucas Trujillo, and I am the new chair member in the newspaper for photography. I wanted to introduce myself to you all and just say a little about myself. I really enjoy photography and sports, especially basketball. I’d like to think that I’m a kind and funny person and if anyone needs help I want to help them in any way that I can. I want to be able to show you the way a picture can speak to you and show its true meaning by just looking and admiring it. I will take this job and opportunity seriously and hope to do well and provide you all with the right photo for each story that comes my way.
