Danielle Bardelang, Reporter

Hey! I'm Danielle Elizabeth Bardelang, a freshman at AAJHS. I hold the titles of Student Council Vice President, National Jr. Honor Society (NJHS) President and am a part of the ninth grade committee. Along side of school activities, I twirl baton competitively and with the school. I am the 2019- 2020 Majorette Captain. The Show Twirlers have become a major part of my life as I have won many national twirling titles individually and with my team. Although twirling takes up most of my time, I enjoy writing and spending time with my family. In 2019, I won second place in a national essay writing contest, and I couldn't have done it without the writing genes coming from my mother. My mom is a published author and works in the school district while my dad works out of town. My oldest brother, A.J., attends Slippery Rock University, while my older brother, Josh, is a junior at the high school. I live by Steve Maraboli's quote, "This is my life... my story... my book. I will no longer let anyone else write it, nor will I apologize for the edits I make."
