The Northern Light

Kylie Clifton

I’m Kylie, a new Staff Writer, new to all things journalism. I have always been deeply interested in the subject of media, and always heard great things about Northern’s journalism courses. Being a freshman I only started this current school year, am have been enjoying all aspects. Specifically, I love in-depth, opinion, and personal narrative. Exploring topics from a time in my own life, or what’s out in the world are my favorite things.  I enjoy being on staff, because I get to explore my own creativity and expression, and do so with an exciting group of other journalism writers and designers.
