Grace Mak, Editor-in-Chief

Spinning flags in “middle of nowhere”, Pennsylvania. That’s where Grace Mak was for a good part of the summer, working with the TJMC. Mak, a senior at Jefferson, enjoys baking, and in her free time, used to read classic books like “Pride and Prejudice”.

“But now, I don't get time to read,” Mak said.

Mak also enjoys listening to all sorts of music, and dances as well. Mak has five years of journalistic experience, three of which she has spent working with TJ Media. She started volunteering for the middle school journalism club, and when she first came to Jefferson, she worked as a member of tjTODAY’s 8th-period staff.

As for Mak’s future, “I'm hoping to someday go into the medical field, specifically as a pediatrician or family doctor,” she said. “I've always really loved working with kids."

Mak also hopes to one day take a trip with some of her friends. Mak shared that she was put in a position in which she almost didn’t work for TJ Media, however, her passion for journalism kept her close to TJ Media.

“Unfortunately my schedule didn't work out so I got put into Ancient Civ,” Mak said of her freshman schedule. “So to kinda still be in journalism, I started working as 8th-period staff for tjTODAY and then I was able to sign up for Journalism 2 the next year. This would be my third consecutive year on the tjTODAY staff.”
