Joining The Feather as a sophomore, the last three years have held countless days completing photo assignments, posting on Instagram and writing photo posts. With this chapter of my life coming to a close, I excitedly look forward to what lies ahead of me. I am so thankful for the growth I experienced during my time on The Feather that makes me feel prepared and ready to take on whatever my future holds.
I first joined The Feather Online during my sophomore year of high school for one sole reason: I really wanted to get better at my writing. Today, I have not only gotten better at writing, but I have learned so much more from The Feather.
