Dylan Stevens

Grade: 12

Position: Entertainment Editor

Favorite Class: English

Interesting Fact: I firmly believe cats are just as fun as dogs

I have always felt that math and science classes do not exactly fit me and writing about things I love has really been a fun activity for as long as I can remember. So Newspaper club was an amazing outlet for me. I joined last year and found great joy in writing about music and other entertainment articles. I have played sports for the school, including Frisbee Club but listening to and  making my own music outside of school is another passion that I enjoy a ton. I try to translate those passions as best I can when I write and above all else hope to create articles that can educate and entertain other people like me!
