Aafreen Ali, Editor-in-Chief

Aafreen loves sarcasm to a core. In beginning her high school literary endeavor, she looked toward satire and comical writing to propel her through her academics. Now, she is a senior and print editor-in-chief with a passion for putting personality into her work, whether it be writing or designing. In continuing her time on the newsmagazine staff, she hopes to use her voice to not only convey her outlook, but bring to light the perspectives of those in the Jefferson community. Specifically with an emphasis on personal interviews and feature articles, Aafreen is not afraid of expanding her horizons, but ready to take on new journalistic challenges.

Its great to have a group of people or multiple people or one person that you can talk to, that you can send a message and genuinely enjoy talking to them. Yeah, like more than just for class, but to think of and for them to be your friend and talk to them, Riekse said.
