Miriam Bachunguye attends Westside High School as a freshman. This is her first year writing for the Howler News team. Her long-term ambition after high school is to work as a television news reporter or anchor because she want to inform people about current events throughout the world.

She also enjoy drawing, reading books, and listening to music and podcasts in her spare time. Spending time with her family and close friends is another something she loves.
