Hi, my name is Josh Patterson. I have been on the Leaf for all four years of my high school career. It is kind of bittersweet typing that considering the time has passed so quickly. After I graduate I would like to pursue a major in political-science and economics, with a possible minor in communications. The person that inspired me to pursue this was Jon Stewart. I watched him ever since I stumbled upon a clip of his show on the internet, and I immediately fell in love with the show. The way he conveyed his message, along with his humor resonated with me and I have tried to put that level of thought and energy into my own writing and behavior. My favorite topics to write about are generally Sports or A&E, but most things that I write about are my opinion on these topics. I also enjoy tackling a lot of social issues. The thing I enjoy the most about being in journalism is the ability to give people a voice. As someone who is in charge of the opinion section, I pride myself in being able to print people’s voices and opinions on a variety of issues.
