U-High Midway

Priyanka Shrijay, Editor-in-Chief

I first joined the U-High Midway staff as a freshman in the Accelerated Beginning Journalism program. Since then I have served as a reporter and then the opinion editor for the 2017-18 academic year. My favorite part of journalism is working with different people to share and represent their voices in the Midway. In addition to working on the Midway, I am also involved in piano and Indian classical dance outside of school.
