Charlie Kephart, Reporter

Hey! My name is Charlie Kephart, and I am an eighth grader here at AAJHS. Writing has been my passion since fourth grade.   I wanted to write for Livewire because of my love for writing. Also, I like photography and will enjoy taking pictures for the newspaper.  Besides that, I have been a swimmer for about a year and a half now, and I absolutely love it! Furthermore, I enjoy reading, watching Netflix and hanging out with my best friend. After high school, I hope to go to Penn State University and study interior design. Once I graduate college, my best friend and I dream of opening our own interior designing business. I live by the quote, "Just because my path is different, doesn't mean I am lost," by Gerard Abrams.
