Alison Boening, Editor

Hello. My name is Alison Boening, and I am an 8th grader at J. Frank Dobie Junior High School. My goals for this school year are to start talking to people and try to overcome my social anxiety. When I’m not at school, I am reading, doing creative writing on my typewriter, or drawing. My favorite class is history, and I am thinking about being a historian or a history professor when I grow up. I enjoy journalism class because I get to show others my writing, and I am practicing talking to new people while doing interviews. I have also discovered that I am good at taking photos, and I have grown to love photojournalism.  My favorite topics to write about on the school newspaper level are academics and extracurricular activities like Academic UIL, but I enjoy branching out and writing about different topics as well.
