Sadie Price, reporter

Hi! I'm Sadie, and I'm 14 years old. I love taking pictures so that's why I joined newspaper. I play soccer for the high school. I have been playing soccer since I was four. I love bacon and pancakes which probably explains why I eat them twice a week. I was named after my great grandmother Crist Sadie Price. When I have time to spare, I am always with my family or friends. Now that you know a little bit about me enjoy my pictures!
