Yvanna Reyes, Video Chief

Hello!
My name is Yvanna Reyes. The class of 2017-2018 marks my final year of high school, third year at Sycamore High School, and second year on the journalism staff.
Through journalism, I have been able to creatively express myself through three of my passions; making films, writing, and instilling a sense of community in others.
With the exception of my conquests in journalism, I look to subjects like psychology, English, and chemistry to express these three things.
As high school has progressed, my extrovertedness has, to my own surprise, grown exponentially. In doing so, I found myself going from a Model UN attendee to President of the club; from having an interest in medicine to interning at the Mercy Health Explorers program; and from being a regular ol’ journalism student to Video Chief and Social Media Director.
Outside of school, I unwind by playing music and making short films. I enjoy singing, practicing guitar (acoustic and electric), and playing the ukulele.
By being a part of the journalism community, I hope to not only practice rigor and discipline, but also find pride in the work that I contribute to this school.
Cheers to a great year!

Don’t judge a Facebook ad by its cover. Facebook has decreased in popularity among millennials, but other generations, ones with less Internet experience, are often the most victim to these scams. “It is definitely frustrating, untrustworthy information being so readily broadcast is concerning. What could possibly be their goal?” said Kiri Wang,11.
