Hi, my name is Austin Price and I am a sophomore at Pomona High School. Being a sophomore, this is my second year in journalism and I am currently the chief-copy-editor and mentor to incoming staff writers. I look forward to many years to come participating in journalism and hope to one day be the editor-in-chief. Out of all the stories I have written this year, my favorite one would probably be "Superstitions and How they Affect Us" simply because the mental thinking and aspect behind it is so interesting. I have written multiple short stories and many works of poetry and in the year of 2016-2017, I completed the task of writing a 30,000 word novel for the National Novel Writing Month challenge in November and wrote a 15,000 word piece this year for the 2017-2018 challenge. When I am not reading or writing, I love to dance and I am a Studio Company Member of the Colorado Conservatory of Dance. I also love to sing, listen to Broadway musicals, spend hours upon hours at Barnes and Noble, and play with my five beloved ferrets. In the future, I hope to become an elementary school teacher because of my love of children and understanding their young minds compared to ours. I plan on going to Metro College right here in Denver, Colorado.
