I'm Kylie, this is now my second year on staff. I am very proud to say I am The Portage Northern Light's Business Manager, with that I manage all of the funding, ad sales, and communication with businesses for our newspaper. Despite my positions I still highly enjoy the writing side of journalism, specifically feature writing, going really in-depth with my topics, news stories, and the sometimes opinion writing. I am looking forward to my progression and staff and am very exciting for the future of the light.
