U-High Midway

Audrey Matzke
I joined the U-High Midway staff in September 2017 as a freshman in the Beginning Journalism program. I enjoy writing for the Midway because it gives me an outlet to tell other people’s stories, and I loved covering Artsfest in February 2018. I like to read, write, learn about philosophy and climb trees. I live at home with my parents, sister and two cats.
