Maryanne's Story

My passion is journalism.

I discovered my passion for journalism in high school. My goal is to become a journalist and give a voice to those who don't have one in our society. This program is going to give me all the tools I need to succeed in becoming an amazing journalist.

A Note from Mr. Hippard, Maryanne's Teacher

Maryanne has a genuine interest in journalism. She is politically active in the community and I have has many sophisticated conversations with her on a number of recent local, national, and world affairs. This is extraordinary for a student her age. Maryanne will benefit from Wishbone opportunities as long as she can share her personal journey, expand her experiences, and fuel her appetite for journalism.

Ready for Newroom By The Bay!

I am so unbelievably excited to go to my summer program in a few months!
I'm already listing the things I need to pack and thinking about all the journaling opportunities I'll have this summer! I just cannot stop talking about it! And every time I think about how great of a chance this is to further my journalism experience, I think of the people who made it possible. I am extremely grateful for everyone who made my dream come true. Thank you so much for allowing me to pursue my passion!
