Paris Lawson
Bonjour! I'm Paris Lawson, a freshman at the Altoona Area Jr. High School. I am a major geek when it comes to anything about Greek mythology, anime and manga, Magic the Gathering, Harry Potter, Rick Riordan books (or books in general), and golf. Respectively, I'm in the Reading Competition club, Drama Club and TCG club. I love writing both fiction and non-fiction stories for class and for fun. I would love to become an author or editor for a future career. I love to watch Marvel movies with one of my best friends and hanging out at each others houses. Except for a few things, I think you know all about me now!

Paris Lawson, Reporter
