My name is Ella Simpson, and I am currently a sophomore here at State High. I am beyond excited to be able to have the opportunity to take Journalism, because I am interested in it as a possible future career. While I look forward to growing my knowledge in many aspects of journalism, I take specific interest in broadcast journalism.

I have always loved performing in front of others. I’ve lived in State College for most of my life, and many wonderful performance opportunities have been given to me here, either through school or other organizations. I’ve taken up theatre and video production in the past, and both have allowed me to improve my speech and embrace my creativity. Currently, I am a flutist in State High’s Symphonic Band, where I enjoy sharing music with audiences of all types. I am also an attorney for the mock trial team. All of my opportunities have shaped me into a student with more appreciative knowledge for the art and craft that goes into performance and communications. When I am not working on speech and performance, I turn to art. I enjoy drawing and painting, where I can express myself imaginatively.
