Hello! My name is Vionna Jackson, and I am an eighth grade reporter. I look forward to working with the news writing staff this year and gaining experience. I enjoy spending time with my friends, and I’m always the group photographer. I believe that documenting every moment is important because eventually pictures will be the only thing left. Softball and basketball are two of my favorite hobbies and with that comes conflict. Having a platform to use my voice and bring attention to a topic is something I have always wanted. Cooking is another passion of mine. I hope to make general Tso's chicken someday considering it’s my favorite food. Hopefully, the next time you hear from me I will have mastered the recipe!
