Hello! My name is Londyn, and I'm an eighth grade reporter. Since I was little, I have always enjoyed writing, so I'm super excited to write for Livewire this year! I love makeup/skincare, photography, going to the gym and travelling. My favorite place to travel to is New York City. When I'm older, I want to go to NYU and become an author. I have an English bulldog, a sheepadoodle, a baby turtle and two cats.

Bring out the markers! Eighth grader Ella Heverly sketches her design on her pumpkin. Heverly used smart thinking and pulled out an Expo marker so she would know where to carve.

It was fun to take a break from news writing and get into the Halloween spirit, said Heverly.
