Cassidy Klock
Hello! I'm Cassidy, a writer for the Altoona Area Junior High school newspaper! I am a ninth grade and academic student. Ever since I was young, I've enjoyed writing. Whether I was writing a fairy tale or an essay, I've loved to create a story . I play for the AAJHS basketball team and outside of school I'm a very artistic person. You can always find me drawing, painting or sculpting. I am also a part of the AAJHS choir! I am overjoyed about having the opportunity to be able to write for our school paper, not only because of how fun and exciting the class is, but also because I can expand my writing abilities to a more professional level.
