The Black & White

Elisa McCartin
Grade: 12 Interests: Debate Team, Politics/current events, research and public policy. Why did you join the Black & White?  I joined the Black and White because I have always enjoyed reading the news and learning about new issues I had no prior knowledge about. I like learning about issues and then basing my opinions on the facts I consume through research. Why are you well suited to write/edit for your section or to perform your job? I am well suited to edit for the opinion section because I deeply believe that people should be able to express their opinions and have a forum for self expression. I like learning about how other people believe we can improve our community.
