Lindsay Ruskin
Hi everyone! My name is Lindsay Ruskin this is my first year on staff. I am a freshman this year, and I am looking forward to learning different editing styles and also the software. I joined journalism because I wanted to do something that would let me contribute to the school. I enjoy writing, especially about current topics, and I thought that journalism was very interesting, so I decided this was my way of impacting the school. I have two brothers, Ben and Sam, who have both graduated from SHS and took journalism as well. My oldest brother, Ben, was editor in chief, and I hope to be when I am a senior too! I have a dog named Bailey, who I love with all of my heart, and will be 10 years old in October. Although she doesn’t like to be active and take walks, she is the best and is still crazy! For the past 5 summers I have gone to sleepaway camp in Indiana, called Camp Livingston. This is where I have met some of my best friends, and every year I love coming back to camp to see their smiling faces.  In my free time I like to learn how to play different songs on the ukulele. I also like to hangout with my friends, whether it is just sitting at home, or going to the park. Whenever I am with my friends, I am smiling because I love being around people and having their company. One food that I love is a burrito. There are so many different combinations of food that you can put in! It is one of the smartest inventions that I have ever seen. My favorite band is AJR, because their music makes me very happy. It is upbeat, joyful and always puts me in a positive mood. I am very excited for this upcoming year in journalism, and I hope to kick it off with a great start!
