The Northern Light

Astrid Code
Junior Astrid Code has been a NL member for her entire high school career. “I have always had a passion for journalism,” she says. “I've been making my own newspapers since elementary school, so I was so excited for the chance to join a high school newspaper staff.” The NL staff is a bright spot in her day: “The family atmosphere of the Northern Light is so amazing, and I always feel welcome there,” she shares. “I have enjoyed the chance to make a difference in the world by going out into the world, talking to people, and spreading the truth, which becomes more important every day.” Outside of the NL, Astrid plays violin in the Kalamazoo Junior Symphony and sings in the Kalamazoo Children's Chorus.
