The student voice of Sycamore High School in Cincinnati, Ohio

Hi, I'm Caroline Bruns and I'm a senior at Sycamore high school! I've been on the SHSLeaf Staff since sophomore year. After learning the tricks of the trade from some experienced mentors, I began to find my own way in this journalism class. Sophomore year I focused heavily on the website, learning how to embed external links, create and modify a website, and publish student works on our nationally recognized site. Junior year I held the position of Web Editor-in-chief. This year I am Webmaster. The job title is very cool, but it basically means that I oversee all publications and modifications on the website, as well as publishing works and communicating with WordPress representatives. If you scroll through my articles, you will see that I am an avid writer of sports (especially cross country); this is because I am the captain of the women's cross country team. Although I am usually an online writer, I have been published multiple times in our student newspaper, The Leaf, and our online news magazine, The Leaflet. I pride myself in my ability to use Adobe Indesign, Illustrator, Premiere, and Photoshop to set up pages, edit photos, and create interesting media for our readers. In the future, I hope to study business and marketing. Eventually, I hope to become an international business representative or work for P&G. A few more things about myself... I am a member of NHS, an avid skier, a dog enthusiast, and a lover of Ernest Hemmingway. I am also a student council rep. for the senior class, and head of the StuCo social committee. Outside of school, I play rec soccer, hammock often with friends, and run. My favorite quote is, "The only time you can't find a four leaf clover is when you stop looking for one" - Joe Rantz.

Caroline Bruns, Webmaster
