The Leaf

Katie Mott: AE chief

Katie Mott, A&E Editor

Hello! My name is Katie Mott, and I am a junior and this is my second year on The Leaf staff. This year, I am elated to be the A&E Editor, which means I oversee the stories, photos, and designs going into the Arts and Entertainment section of The Leaf. I also get to collaborate with all of the writers in my section to help them turn their amazing ideas into incredible stories. I decided to join journalism as a sophomore to further explore my passion for writing as prior to joining the class all I had written was a few fictional stories, some poems, and an abundance of essays for English class. What brought me back to journalism as a junior was not only the myriad of knowledge I gained during my first year on staff but also the amazing community of fellow journalists I have the pleasure of working with daily. Through every tight deadline, design issue, and AP style question, everyone on staff is always willing to help. Due to the dedication of The Leaf staff to our magazine, website, and social media publications, we tend to stay busy throughout the school year. However, when I am not hard at work on a new story, I love to take time to read and write to continuously improve my craft. I mostly write poetry and fictional short stories, often inspired by my experiences or issues that I find most pressing in today’s world. I enjoy submitting my pieces to contests, and, even if I do not come close to winning, I remain thankful for the opportunity to have others judge my work. Outside of reading and writing, my other passions include baking, spending time outdoors, participating in various activities at my church, and spending time with friends and family. And with that, I hope you enjoy all of the stories that The Leaf has to offer. Happy reading!
