War Whoop Online

Alayna Amen
As legendary Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi once said, "hello there." Yes, I just made a Star Wars reference; get over it. 

Anyway, it’s nice to meet whomever you are, and thanks for deciding to read about me.

This is my third year in journalism and on staff. I started as a photographer in photojournalism, and now I am the photo editor, editor of the people section in the yearbook, an advanced photographer, a part of The BEAT, and a writer for the yearbook and online newspaper. I am also a member of the speech team.

My personality is an interesting one. If you know me personally, then you know that I can be rather loud, persistent and super talkative (especially when I’m talking about my new love for something).

If you don’t know me or you haven’t gotten into my inner sanctum, then I seem very quiet and reserved (which, I am).

I am also an occasional collector of enamel pins and acrylic charms, as well as books. Just because I don’t read as much anymore doesn’t mean that I don’t like to look.

In addition, I listen to a ton of music, and just this morning, I was listening to a Jekyll & Hyde song before a Kesha song came on after. 

Hey, if you’re still reading this, just know that you are important! Self-love is important, and we all should have a little bit of it, even if our brains say that we don’t deserve it. Godspeed, reader!
