The Black & White

Lily Friedman

Grade: 12


Interests: Writing, sports, politics, music, hiking


Why did you join the Black & White?  
I've always loved telling stories, so journalism provided me with a medium to investigate stories in my community and relate those stories to national trends.

Why are you well suited to write/edit for your section or to perform your job?
Last year, I expanded from my base as a news writer to cover everything from county education policy to the reasoning behind my passion for country music. I love writing, finding trends, and compiling information, so my job as an editor is really more of a pleasure than a job for me.
