Samantha Golas, Editor

Samantha Golas is passionate about many things, but is going to take the opportunity of journalism to speak on mental health, something she feels is misapprehended at Hall High School.

Q: What are some things you like to do in your free time?

A: I love to run, it has always been a good way to clear my mind and release stress.

Q: What are the most important lessons you’ve like taken away in life so far?

A: I’m really passionate about mental health, including speaking up when things are bothering you, which is something that I definitely learned as I’ve gotten older.

Q: When was the last time you felt proud of yourself?

A: That’s a good question, I feel like I'm pretty proud of myself in general, especially in managing high school through covid.

Q: Why did you choose the journalism course?

A: I kinda liked the idea of having the freedom to write about something that interests me.  Every other English class that I’ve taken has been really structured, and everyone does the same thing.  You don’t really have freedom to talk or write about things that you are interested in, instead we are forced to go off what the teachers want you to write/curriculum.  I like how I can talk about what I’m moved by.
