U-High Midway

Nikhil Patel, Editor-in-Chief

I first joined the U-High Midway staff as a sophomore in the Beginning Journalism program. Since then I have served as a reporter. My favorite part of journalism is talking to a wide variety of people. My best story was an editorial on Augmented Reality. In addition to working for the Midway, I am also involved in the science and debate teams. I really like penguins.
