Kamryn Johnson, Writer

 Kamryn Johnson is a sophomore at Westside High School, she is in the Futures program for health science where she will graduate high school with an associates degree. This is her first year being a part of the newspaper, and her second year at this school.

She runs track for both the school and AAU and also did cheer for 4 years previously. She am not much of a sports or club person, but  she's interested in psychology and hopes to be able to take that as an elective at least once throughout high school. 

Kamryn hopes to cover sports or more social stories because those are the most interesting to her and her peers. Her main goal currently is to do her best in school so she can get into her dream school, Howard University.
